IntoPittsburgh: A Motto?

At Burgh Diaspora, Jim Russell is blogging up a storm about IntoPittsburgh, our evolving real/virtual Pittsburgh diaspora connectivity project. There are a lot of irons in the fire, which suits Steelers country.

We could use a motto, and I came across a quotation recently that may suit us well:

"What you have as heritage, Now take as task, / For thus you will make it
your own,"

from Goethe's Faust. In the original: "Was du ererbt von deinen Vätern hast,Erwirb es, um es zu besitzen."
