Leadership Quotes - A List of State Mottoes

Scroll down to scan a list of Leadership Quotes in the form of state mottos for each and every state. By today's standards, they are quaintly amusing in their antiquity. 

State Mottoes are not to be confused with State Slogans. For instance, the state slogan of Arizona is The Grand Canyon State. 

In some cases, such as California, the state motto and the state slogan are one and the same.
