TBWCYL Day 328 - Whats a Motto? Nothing, Whats a motto with you?

Ah the Lion King. Such a great movie. And speaking of Mottos, I chose one to live by yesterday from The Book. I read them all carefully and decided on the one below.

Aut Vincam Aut Periam
Either Win or Perish

I think it adds a fighting spirit into things and makes sense for me as when I go for something I have a tendency to over commit and go balls to the wall on things. Thus the game night of 2008 when I made my friends boyfriend quit playing a game after badgering him because we were losing. Yes, he was my partner in the game but he wasn't using his mind correctly to extrapolate the info I was sending him. Taboo can be a very competitive game.

I looked it up to make sure The Book wasn't pulling my chain and found that it is the official motto for the the Pursell clan.

Origin: Irish
Coat of Arms: Gold with a cross between four black boars heads.
Crest: An arm holding a sword on which there is a black boar's head.
Motto: Aut vincam aut periam

That is kind of cool.

That is all,

Newt

Very nice, and very fitting, considering you haven't given up on this challenge. :)

Addy's Daddy said...

I'm glad you apologize to Jeremy, though I doubt he reads your blog....

Soda and Candy said...

Nice. I think the boar's head adds a little something.

Trinity said...

Thomas, I didn't apologize. He needs to get with the program.

S&C: I am pigheaded so I can see the Boars head being fitting.

Awesome motto. Given my family, I'm kind of afraid to find out what our motto would be.

Trinity said...

Lola: I would guess your motto would be similar to Carpe Stolli.
