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.
