Weirdest State Mottos

  1. Michigan: If You Are Looking for a Pleasant Peninsula, Look Around
    Part motto, part advertising slogan.
  2. California: Eureka!
    California must be hard to find.
  3. Tennessee: Agriculture and Commerce
    "We need a state motto. What's some stuff that goes on around here?" "Well... some people are farmers, some people have stores, some people -" "That's enough. Farming and Stores."
  4. Maryland: Manly Deeds, Womanly Words
    It's the 21st century now. Deeds and words can be any gender they want. Deeds can be caregivers and words can serve in army combat units. Suggested update: "Caring Deeds, Combative Words."
  5. North Carolina: To Be Rather Than to Seem
    No posers please.
  6. Oregon: She Flies With Her Own Wings
    Hell yeah!
  7. Louisiana: Union, Justice, and Confidence
    SAYING you're confident makes you look the OPPOSITE of confident.
  8. Maine: I Direct
    Ugh, not everyone can direct. Get over it.
  9. Oklahoma: Labor Conquers All
    Who are they trying to trick, manual laborers or pregnant women?
  10. Montana: Silver and Gold
    Make new friends, but keep the old.
  11. New Mexico: It Grows as it Goes
    I feel like this is about weed and whoever came up with it was high.
  12. Virginia: Thus Always to Tyrants
    "Hey England, guess what? We're choosing our OWN motto and there's there's nothing you can do about it."
  13. Georgia: Wisdom, Justice, Moderation
    Moderation? Is that sarcasm?
