This is Allison’s tattoo.
This quote is from The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. It’s from the part in which Howard Roark is talking to the head of his architecture school.
It’s one of my favorite books, by far my favorite author, and my favorite quote. It sums up my main view on life. Do what makes you happy, who is going to stop you?
“The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.”
- Ayn Rand
