Miley Cyrus, 19, has added to her collection of ink. The future Mrs. Liam Hemsworth displayed what has to be her most visible tattoo yet, a quote on her left forearm, Tuesday while leaving a Pilates class in West Hollywood. The tattoo features a quote from an unlikely source: former President of the United States Theodore Roosevelt. It reads, "So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." Roosevelt gave the quote as part of an often-cited 1910 speech "Citizenship in a Republic," or "The Man in the Arena," that Teddy gave at the Sorbonne in Paris, where it was well received. A longer excerpt reads: "It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." Another Commander in Chief, President Richard Nixon, referred to the speech during his 1974 resignation, saying "Sometimes I have succeeded and sometimes I have failed, but always I have taken heart from what Theodore Roosevelt once said about the man in the arena, 'whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood....'"

Cyrus, who often tweets out quotations that she likes, first posted the Roosevelt words to her Twitter account on July 3. Some of the other gems she's tweeted out in the last week, include lyrics from The Flaming Lips' song "Do You Realize??" and the words of Albert Einstein, who said, "If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things."

Some of those quotes could end up as tattoos later, since Cyrus has shown she's definitely into ink. She has more than a dozen tattoos, including a dreamcatcher that covers much of her right ribcage, which is reportedly her largest one, and an equal sign on her ring finger to show her support for gay marriage. What do you think of her latest addition?
