North Carolina’s Folk Heart.
Not all mottos reflect the true nature of a state, but North Carolina’s comes pretty close. Esse quam videri means “to be, rather than to seem.” This state is the 10th most populous, yet it flies under the radar of public life. Its beautiful and varied landscapes, and its good-natured people stand unaffected by outside influence. They are who they are, through and through. Buy Prints Here.
