Special Edition: Dies Laboris - Labor Day

In honor of Labor Day, consider the motto of Oklahoma, "Labor conquers all," Labor omnia vincit in Latin.

LABOR OMNIA VINCIT




detail:




And some cats too of course:


Decus in labore.
There is dignity in work.



Labor ferendus est cibum petentibus.
Work must be endured by those seeking food.



Labor omnia superat.
Hard work overcomes all things.



Labore et scientia.
By means of effort and knowledge.



Ex labore dulcedo.
After effort, sweetness.



And a poster:


You be a worker, and God will be your helper.
(Latin: Esto laborator et erit Deus auxiliator.)

Our school motto is "Ora et Labora". (Oddly though, it reads "Ora labo et ra".)
