I struggle I arise.

 …motto of Zeeland Province in the Netherlands

    I like that motto. I might steal it when you’re not looking, but that would be hypocritical to the message. I really relate to it though.

    …think of it this way: the Dutch stole it from the Latins, I stole it from the Dutch & your use of it will keep it alive too!

    Thank you for the compliment!
