Miley Cyrus dug deep for her newest tattoo, inking words from former President Teddy Roosevelt on her left arm.
Miley Cyrus did not go with the perhaps the most famous Teddy Roosevelt phrase, about foreign policy: Speak softly and carry a big stick.
Instead, the Party In The USA singer opted for a line Roosevelt delivered at The Sorbonne in Paris in an April 23, 1910 speech titled Citizenship In A Republic.
Although she's active on Twitter and shares many photos with her 6.4 million followers, Miley Cyrus has yet to take a picture of her newest tattoo and share it with the world. You can view the new Miley Cyrus tattoo here.
The phrase tattooed on Miley Cyrus' left arm is: So that this place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither their victory nor defeat.
Miley Cyrus' new tattoo is just the ending phrase of the lengthy Roosevelt speech, in which the 26th president spoke about how a country is shaped by its citizens. The entire paragraph reads as follows:
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 them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face in marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in 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 fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
US Weekly noticed the new Miley Cyrus tattoo after the The Climb singer walked out of a Pilates class Tuesday in West Hollywood.
This isn't the first time Miley Cyrus found inspiration from politics for her tattoos.
The singer has an equal sign inked on her ring finger to signify her support of gay marriage, MTV reported.
Miley Cyrus tweeted the tattoo's image to her followers. She received so much hate mail for her stance on gay marriage that she temporarily deleted her Twitter account.
There has been so much controversy sometimes about what I've said or done because I believe there are no mistakes, because God is the only one who can judge us, Cyrus said, according to MTV. That's the reason I deleted my Twitter account because I said on there that I believed in gay marriage because everyone should have the right to love each other, and I got such hate mail about my being a bad person.
