Monday Motto

Oh, I do love a Latin motto, and this one is one of my favourites:

Nec Aspera Terrent

Which apparently means ‘difficulties be damned’.

I’ve picked up this translation from the Wikipedia page on the Kings Liverpool Regiment, who, along with other regiments, use this as their motto, but other sources, such as that on the Latin Discussion forum, suggest it’s more literal translation is ‘and the rough doesn’t deter’ or ‘and the tough stuff doesn’t scare [us] off’.  They all mean roughly the same I guess, and I like the brevity (and alliteration) of Difficulties be Damned, so I’m plumping for that and will be saying it at every opportunity this week! 🙂

Have a great Monday everyone!
