Pick the best motto

Reply Sat 24 Nov, 2012 11:07 am
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.
