Georgia's motto "Wisdom, justice, and moderation" is pretty good, but I dig the scifi vibe of Kansas' "Ad astra per aspera" - "To the stars through hardships"

Bible Translation Times!
"Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?" in the KJV is "Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?" in the NIV. It's good advice but the KJV translation choice is a bit odd - funny that the greek must be ambiguous like that.
Dada Chess: http://www.crummy.com/features/dada/chess/ "Not all artists are chess players, but all chess players are artists." --Duchamp
You know, I'm kind of irked by how chess says "the king is never captured". Such blatant monarchism - down with the king!
