Near Valley Wells, Texas. AD ASTRA PER ASPERA - or “A Rough Road Leads to the Stars”. Congratulations to Matt Smith. “I have always loved this quote as it has many meanings that can be taken from it. Life doesn't always hand you smiles and happiness. From the ill-fated crew of Apollo 1 to getting by in day to day life, this quote holds true. I'm nowhere near where I want to be, but each day is one day closer,” says Matt. || Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery. - MORE from Royce: Great title, Matt! I had never heard of this Latin phrase until seeing your photo. “Ad astra per aspera”, literally means ”through hardships to the stars" or “to the stars through difficulties" The State of Kansas uses this motto on their state seal, over a cluster of 34 stars, referring to the difficulty in reaching the near impossible . .
