Tattoo "We are all stardust and stories."


New Member
I'm looking to translate the quote, "We are all stardust and stories," "we" being a mixed audience, but I am female (if it makes a difference).

The quote will appear in the middle of a field of stars and my favorite fictional spaceships (from books, tv, and movies, representing these stories), and comes from one of my favorite books, The Starless Sea. I've always found my escape in looking at the stars and reading books, so this just ties everything together perfectly.

I understand there are multiple words for "stars," and I am not sure if there is a clear word for "stardust" or if it can be broken down to "star dust." The minimal Latin I learned was over 15 years ago, so I will not even begin to guess for myself, and I appreciate any help anyone can give.

Also, this is my first post, so feel free to correct me if I've made any mistakes regarding the formatting of the post. I will have two more translation requests when this one is fulfilled, and I'd hate to make repetitive mistakes.

Thank you!
