    That was a good one Robin. I'm from South Carolina and I didn't know what ours was. I looked it up and
    it's "Dum Spiro Spero". I don't know what language that is. Sounds like it says we are dumb. So I used a translator and I think it means this.

    New York's state motto is simply "Excelsior" (Ever Upward).












    ... refers to taxes.

    New Mexico's state motto is the Latin phrase "Crescit eundo" which translates as "It grows as it goes."

    I think it's a rather goofy motto. But, that's NM for you.

    I thought Ohio’s motto was, “Glad a River Separates Us and West Virginia”. :supergrin:
