Esse Quam Videri

The Latin phrase Esse Quam Videri, “To Be Rather Than To Seem,” was chosen as the North Carolina state motto by jurist and historian Walter Clark. After Clark drafted the bill in 1893, Senator Jacob Battle of Nash County introduced the bill to the General Assembly to create this as the official state motto.  NC History
