It’s just kind of nice

I got an email from a Marine.  As part of his signature, he included the Marine motto:  Semper fidelis.  I don’t know, but I just think that’s kind of a nice motto to have attached to your life’s work.  It bespeaks, in two Latin words, an ethos of honor and commitment.

I suspect that if I were to have a personal motto, it would be semper querulus. Not exactly uplifting, but accurate nevertheless.

    In addition to Semper Fidelis, the Marines freqently close messages with:
    Improvise, Adapt and Overcome. 

    Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children is a special group, Bookie. Cherish the lot!

    I certainly do.
