Dulcius ex Asperis (Sweeter through difficulties)
Clan Fergusson's family motto is Dulcius ex Asperis; you can see it here on our family crest. It roughly translates "sweeter through difficulties" or "sweeter after difficulties."
To think my ancestors centuries ago in Scotland lived by this motto makes me smile. Our struggles, although different, are nothing new. Humans have been struggling since Adam ate that apple in the garden.
