This tattoo is from Act 3 scene 2 of my favorite play, 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' by William Shakespeare. I love this quote and it was used to describe me by my High School Theatre director, because being only 5'1" and 95 lbs., I can be ferocious in the scene shop. It gives me strength to deal with life's trials and tribulations and when the world has made me feel 'low and little', I know I can make it, because I am fierce.
Oh, when she’s angry, she is keen and shrewd!
She was a vixen when she went to school.
And though she be but little, she is fierce.
- A Midsummer Night's Dream, 3.2.333-335
This belongs to Emma Medeiros:
I first had the idea when my daughter was born. I liked the idea of winding her up in my arms as she slept... Then this year I began training to be a midwife and it seemed even better.
I had rather have a handful or two of dried peas.
But, I pray you, let none of your people stir me: I
have an exposition of sleep come upon me.
Sleep thou, and I will wind thee in my arms.
Fairies, begone, and be all ways away.
So doth the woodbine the sweet honeysuckle
Gently entwist; the female ivy so
Enrings the barky fingers of the elm.
O, how I love thee! how I dote on thee!
- Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, Act 4 Scene 1.
