Fun Fact
Interestingly, the anchor symbol evokes hope in both its forms, either as a symbol to fight against stronger forces, or as an obstacle that one needs to surpass.
An anchor signifies everything that is stable, that endures the test of time. A force that is able to stand on its own against stronger forces. Like an anchor of a ship that reckons with a force much greater than itself and tames it, the symbol of an anchor carries within itself the same power―to fight one's inner demons and tame them.
While an anchor symbol signifies all these positive sentiments, anchor quotes and sayings also echo the same. Which is precisely the reason why many people look to getting short anchor quotes (in addition to symbols) etched as a tattoo. Sift through this ThoughtfulTattoos article for some of the best anchor quotes for tattoos.
