Oklahoma Motto
Labor Conquers All Things
The state motto of Oklahoma is "Labour Conquers All Things" (Labor Omnia Vincit in Latin).

The Oklahoma state motto was adopted in 1907 but the inspiration for the Latin motto itself dates back 2000 years to Virgil, a Roman poet.

In his book "Georgics", Virgil wrote the inspiration for the Oklahoma motto "Labor omnia uicit improbus" meaning Uphill work overcomes all things.

In his work, Virgil was describing how to make agriculture grow in a "Back to the Land" policy introduced by Augustus Caesar. The goal was to inspire more Romans to engage in farming and agriculture.
