The best literary quotes ever tattooed

At Flavorwire, Emily Temple came up with best literary quotes ever tattooed...and she's included photos of the ink.

One entry on the list:
"[I] listened to the old bray of my heart. I am. I am. I am."
--from Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar
Check out the other tattooed quotes.

The Bell Jar appears on Alice-Azania Jarvis's reading list on depression, and is #2 on one list of the top 10 most depressing books.

Esther Greenwood of The Bell Jar appears among Will Davis' top ten literary teenagers.

The Bell Jar's first sentence--“It was a queer, sultry summer, the summer they electrocuted the Rosenbergs, and I didn’t know what I was doing in New York.”--is Ali Smith's favorite opening line of a novel.

--Marshal Zeringue
