Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth now have one new thing in common.

The couple has posted a photo to Instagram of its new, matching tattoos. Of hearts? Of their initials? Nope and nope: of a quote by Teddy Roosevelt!

Excerpted from the former President’s 1910 address titled “Citizenship in a Republic,” Miley got her ink in July and it reads:

“So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”


Liam, meanwhile, has now mirrored his fiancee and etched himself with another quote from Roosevelt’s work. His arm ink reads:

“If he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”

This is not Miley’s first tattoo – she now has 15 total! – nor is it her first political tattoo.

The singer raised some ire when she inked herself with a marriage equality symbol last year.

What do you think of this gesture?
