This list of mottoes was originally the idea of the late Shirley Everett, I took over her basic paperwork and notes and compiled it all, which forms the basis of the list which is also on the TPCS website. I am publishing it here to incorporate many new mottoes, and to give visitors to this site the opportunity to discover whether their collection includes these mottoes. I would, of course, like to hear of yet more new mottoes to add to these lists. Especially a motto beginning with Q.
