Tim and Keith and I drank too many Tecates a couple weeks ago and decided that these are the best state mottos, in no particular order:
Arkansas, “The people rule”
West Virginia, “Mountaineers are always free”
New Hampshire, “Live free or die”
North Dakota, “One sows for the benefit of another age”
New Mexico, “It grows as it goes”
North Carolina, “To be, rather than to seem”
I totally forgot this conversation, but I agree with the results.
