I have been tasked with getting a latin motto for my athletics club, despite the fact I know nothing of the language.
Anyway I have narrowed my favorites down to the following:
ad astra per aspera - through hardships to the stars
per ardua ad alta - through hard work, great heights are achieved
per angusta ad augusta - through difficulties to greatness
palma non sine pulvere - no reward without effort / dare to try
in omnia paratus - ready for anything
dulcius ex asperis - sweeter after difficulty
citius altius fortius - faster, higher, stronger
audere est facere - to dare is to do
audeamus - let us dare
ad meliora - towards better things
acta sanctorum - deeds of saints
audacter et velociter - boldly and swiftly
I would appreciate your opinions on which ones you prefer, but any corrections or different motto suggestions would also be welcome. Thanks guys!
What's the mission of the club? What is your group / individual goal?
All of those mottos would seem to fit, but your group has to figure out why it exists.
Pick 2 and let them decide by vote.
And DON'T print it in all English style font, all caps. I can never read that kind of print.
. . . which means "I am always zealous."
I like the motto of Everton FC.
semper primus always first
we're not being much help, are we?
