How Many U.S. State Mottos Can You Identify?

About This Quiz
Please grant the citizens of the United States some assistance by identifying these state mottos. Most mottos have been in existence since territories were catapulted to statehood status, yet many U.S. citizens don't know their state's phrases. And yes, there are assorted languages to consider, but don't let that deter you from sorting out these catchphrases.
Group mottos are meant to sum up the missions, aspirations and/or histories of a people. This is precisely why states were prompted to select fitting maxims to promote the unifying message of their inhabitants. Alaska's phrase, "North to the Future," tells you exactly where the citizens set their sights after the United States purchased the territory from Russia in 1867 for $7.2 million. Although many Alaskans pursue higher education outside the state, many either return to the state or contribute in some way to help make their native region stronger.
Although Hawaii has experienced a severe land shortage since the state was born in 1959, the state's aphorism, "Ua Mau ke Ea o ka Aina i ka Pono," meaning "The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness," speaks of the land's physical as well as spiritual attributes. So perhaps land scarcity is not such an alarming issue for Hawaiians, according to their hopeful phrase.
Keep the positive vibes flowing as you guess the mottos that have been selected to summarize assorted states' purposes!

"I have found it!" was the triumphant cry of the miners during the Gold Rush era, which began on January 24, 1848, when gold was found by James W. Marshall at Sutter’s Mill in Coloma, California.
The Greek Εύρηκα ( heúrēka) is the first person singular perfect indicative active of the verb εὑρίσκω ( heuriskō), “I find.”
It is exclaimed to celebrate a discovery or an invention. It is attributed to the scientist and inventor Archimedes of Syracuse (c. 287BC - c. 212BC). During attempts to determine whether some silver had been substituted for pure gold by the dishonest goldsmith in the making of a

That would be the Ancient Greek word heýrēka, I assume. Perhaps spelled without the h because someone forgot about its spiritus asper / rough breathing. And also without the diacritics, because English doesn't use those, and with a u, because the Greek y psilón looks a lot like one. So eureka. I wouldn't expect a c instead of the k, but what do I know :).

What does the Greek word "Apokalupsis" mean?
The Greek apokalupsis comes from the verb apokalupto (“to reveal”) and the suffix -sis, which denote actions. In its own turn, apokalupto comes from apo- (“away, off”) and the verb kalupto (“to cover”). So all in all, apokalupsis is the action that lays something bare by removing the cover off it.
Similarly, the English “revelation” comes from the Latin noun revelatio, which comes from the verb revelo (“to reveal”). Revelo is a compound too; it’s made up of re- (“backwards”) and the verb velo (“to cover”). Velo comes from the noun velum (“cloth, curtain, sail”). So to reveal means to

What does “re” mean in Greek?
Ah, well… where to begin? “Re” is one of those universal Greek exclamations second only to the M word in popularity, and particularly expressive when paired with the M word, as in «ρε, μαλάκα!».
Its meaning depends heavily on context and the tone of voice ~ it can be friendly, like in «ρε, τον Γιάννη!» said with a smile, or as an insult when growled as in, “φύγε απ’ εδώ, ρε!» or «τσακίσου, ρε!» or to add emphasis as in «ρε, τι πάθαμε;!»
It is loosely translated as “dude” or “man” ~ «έλα δω, ρε» = “come ‘ere, man”
It is said to come from the ancient Greek μωρός meaning stupid. In the vocative, μωρ

What is the motto of Greece? How was it established?
Eleftheria i thanatos (Greek: Ελευθερία ή θάνατος, pronounced [elefθeˈria ˈi ˈθanatos], "freedom or death") is the motto of Greece. It arose during the Greek War of Independence in the 1820s, where it was a war cry for the Greeks who rebelled against Ottoman rule. It was adopted after the Greek War of Independence. It is still in use today, and is a popular theory regarding the use of 9 stripes (for the nine syllables of the motto) in the Greek flag, the five blue stripes for the syllables "Έλευθερία" and the four white stripes "ή Θάνατος". The motto symbolized and still symbolizes the resolve
