Waxing Lyrical

Came across a great blog on literary tattoos.

Its about people who've tattooed themselves with literary quotes and why they did it. This one resonated with me the most....

"I shall not live in vain."

The poem it comes from is called Not In Vain, by Emily Dickinson.
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain:
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.

Love it. Love it. Love it.
