The Great Alexander

So, to introduce my new tattoo- ‘there is nothing impossible to those who will try’, one of the most famous quotes attributed to my very favourite ancient historical figure, Alexander The Great.

I’ve had an intellectual love affair with Alexander since I was quite young- the absolute mystery surrounding his final resting place, his amazing military achievements during his short 33 years… I could go on for hours, and I have been known to.

To me this single quote of his is a complete way to look at life. because its true- to those who try, nothing really is impossible. its something that im glad to have on my arm- so that when I do lose sight, when I do need reminding, there it is. If he could conquer the world, why can’t I?
