I learned that the New York State motto was “Excelsior” from the movie called “Silver Linings Playbook.” Then I wonder if state mottoes were written in each quarter, so I looked into my collections of “50 State Quarters.” I found that some of the quarters had their state mottoes.

New Hampshire : Live Free or Die
Vermont : Freedom and Unity
Pennsylvania : Virtue Liberty Independence
Wisconsin : Forward

If you are the American, when you were in the elementary school, you learned the states names, capitals, states birds, states flowers, nick names, didn't you? If I remember correctly, I think my son memorized these things when he was in 3rd grade or 4th grade in California.
