    Another pinner said "This is my third tattoo, and I’m already in love with it. My parents used to read me Shel Silverstein poems when I was little and I still read his books today. This particular poem, which is from the newest compilation With Everything On Top, really makes me think of my dad. He passed away last fall and most of the inspiration for my tattoos comes from him. This was done by Matt Bushart at Enchanted Dragon Tattoo Parlor in Sierra Vista, AZ."

ughh..want this pretty badly

I like this phrase as a reminder that grudges hurt ourselves more than others. It's not so much related to Travels as it is to traveling through life.

Very true. I seem to have some misunderstandings in my life and I really tired of people not talking it out, to try to work it out like adults, they are just done with you. They focus on their side, write you off and ignore you with out even trying to see what they could have done. Tired of always being the one to try to do so. Silly to have distance because of a misunderstanding never bothering to work it out. Guess those people weren't meant to be.

The first step is always the most important.

Not necessarily a fan of it being a tattoo, but it's an awesome Silverstein quote.

Used to love his poetry...Shel Silverstein...

There is a voice inside of you That whispers all day long, “I feel that this is right for me, I know that this is wrong.” No teacher, preacher, parent, friend Or wise man can decide What’s right for you– – just listen to The voice that speaks inside. "The Voice", Shel Silverstein

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
