House Leatherwolf
Mottoes



Motto: a short expression of a guiding principle.

Most mottoes are statements of faith or advice, which are serious in nature.
Others are humorous thoughts to remind us not to take ourselves too seriously.

While many times these mottoes are in Latin, they may actually be in any language. 

Many of our household members have decided upon a motto for themselves.
