State Mottoes

Today at school we did a little test on how well we know the 50 states. The hints were given in state flowers, state nicknames, and state mottoes. I found the mottoes especially interesting. So here is my little quiz for you: Can you match the 50 states with their mottoes?

He who transplants sustains
Nothing without Providence
Under God the people rule
In God We Trust
The life of the land is perpetuated by righteousness
God enriches
Let us be grateful to God
With God, all things are possible
Liberty and Independence
Justice for All
State sovereignty, national union
Wisdom, Justice, and Moderation
Our liberties we prize and our rights we will maintain
Union, justice, confidence
Live free or die
Virtue, liberty and independence
Freedom and Unity
Liberty and prosperity
Thus always to tyrants
While I breathe, I hope; Ready in soul and resource
She Flies With Her Own Wings
Let it be perpetual
Labor conquers all things
The people rule
By valor and arms
Let the welfare of the people be the supreme law
Equality before the law
Equal rights
I lead
By the sword we seek peace, but peace only under liberty
Liberty and union, now and forever, one and inseparable
Excelsior (ever upward)
Eureka (I have found it)
Gold and Silver
Agriculture and commerce
The crossroads of America
We dare defend our rights
Mountaineers are always free
By and by
If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look around you
To be, rather than to seem
The star of the North
North to the future
To the stars through difficulties
Manly deeds, womanly words
It grows as it goes

(Here are the answers, if you want to know in a hurry!)
