A man got an inspirational quote tattoo thinking it was an “ancient prophecy”.
Jordan Daly, from Scotland, decided to get the words translated into Latin and inked onto his ribs when he was 18.
It reads: “The brave may not live forever but the cautious do not live at all.”
But it wasn’t until years later that he realised the message was actually a film quote from chick flick The Princess Diaries.
Thankfully, he was able to see the funny side and he now uses the tattoo as an amusing “icebreaker”.
According to the Daily Record, Jordan told Twitter: “My icebreaker story is how when I was 18 I saw this quote online and loved it, so I got it translated to Latin and ran off to get it tattooed on my ribs.”
He continued: “Thought it was some ancient prophecy.
“Only years later did I find out that it’s actually a quote from The Princess Diaries.”
The quote in the first film can be heard when Princess Mia opens a letter from her deceased father as she plans to run away on her sixteenth birthday.
Prince Philippe Renaldi can be seen writing to his daughter by a river as viewers hear him say: “Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgement that something is more important than fear.
“The brave may not live forever but the cautious do not live at all.”
