Good afternoon.How is your day going. @LoriAMoore after she read my post on state motto. she gave hers from Kentucky. Then she gave me an idea about asking everyone one here. What is your state motto there?or country. Thought that this should be an interesting subject. Are you game to join in.We loved it to see it here. For us as many you know Live Free or Die is ours So join in and let us see how many we can get. I have a correction to make. On my post on Jade Marie gave the wrong age.Now sure what I was thinking. She got back to me on this little note that I am sharing with you. Hello again! Also wanted to let you know after reading some comments on your blog post, My music genre is pretty diverse, I love classic rock so there's some rock elements but also pop and folk. Every songs kind of different. And I'm 17 years old, and wrote and produced all of my music by myself. Just in case anyone was wondering! Thank you photo is public domaine

The state motto of California, where I live is: Eureka. The state motto of Wisconsin, where I was born is: Forward. The state motto of New York, another place I've lived is: Excelsior Wonder why I'm not more laconic.

My country (Italy) I think has the only like motto the national anthem (Fratelli d'Italia). Sorry for this question: Your fullname "Alfredo Rossi" seems like Italian. You are by Italian origin? Thank you

I have to ask my grandchildren how old they are now. It gets lost around age 10. My state motto is the Dairy State. In Green Bay we're known as Cheeseheads. It's a football thing.

Here in North Carolina the state motto is "Esse quam videri" which translates to "To be rather than to seem". We are known as the Tar Heel state.

@suziecat7 Tar Heel state?the meaning of this

@amadeo There are several theories of where this nickname comes from. The most plausible is that during the Civil War when troops from other states were retreating from a particular battle, the North Carolina regiment held their ground like their heels were stick in tar.

Australia doesn't seem to have a motto. Written on our coat of arms is 'advance Australia' but I don't think you'd call that a motto.
