Default Lyric ideas for a tattoo?

Im going for my first tattoo tomorrow (ff logo on forearm) and was thinking next week I would like a line or two from a Foo track to go on the other arm. I know its silly asking for ideas because the lyric should be something to means something to you, but was wondering what other people may get?
it wouldnt have to be your favourite lyric... just something that would look good as a tattoo.

I have been considering:
"To keep alive a moment at a time"
"Its times like these you learn to live again"
"I was always caged and now Im free"
"Too weak to give in, Too strong to lose"

any ideas?

Too many ideas... but to me "I dream about the day I learn to fly" from A320 or "Try living a lie and kicking out the same old guise, Wasting time" I love them both!

I always really liked "In your honor I would die tonight, for you to feel alive." I always thought that was an awesome line because I always thought of "In Your Honor" as being Dave's missive to the fans. That or "I'm amazed that I'm still standin" from Live In Skin or from the same song "I can not change back for you, I will not change back for you, I must live in skin that's new, I'm a live in skin that's new" since it's a permanent change to your skin with a tattoo and everything.

I was thinking the whole Times Like These Chorus.
Small print.
"It's Times Like These you learn to live again
It's Times Like These you give and give again
It's Times Like These you learn to love again
It's Times Like These, time and time again"

For so so so many moments in all of our lives, no words are more appropriate, the moments we live for
