That is a rule I can no longer up with put! It's a wonderful thing that 8th grade English teachers aren't the ones composing our cherished literature, poetry, television, speeches, or movies. There comes a point when obeying every "rule" of grammar becomes completely pedantic. It's the type of language that belongs in an unread user's manual.

Grammarians generally agree that the "don't end sentences with a preposition" rule is pointless and unnecessary. It was created a few hundred years ago when some scholars got it into their heads that English grammar should follow some of the same rules as Latin grammar. In Latin grammar, you couldn't end a sentence with a preposition because they always modified the word following them, and it would make the sentence not make sense. This is also why you're supposedly not allowed to split infinitives, because in Latin infinitives were single words (rather than two words, like "to split") and so couldn't be split.

In short, English isn't Latin, so stop applying Latin rules to English sentences.

@MarlowePI I'm very rusty in my latin, but if I remember correctly, word placement doesn't really matter; romans changed the order of words in sentences all the time (very annoying). Declination, rather than position, is what determines the function words play in a sentence.

I think there was a campaign called "Google, don't be evil", in protest against Google's agreement to disable approach to certain sites in China. I agree that it is inappropriate to have it here as a motto which "belongs" to Google.

it' wasn't something assigned to them by the protests; "Don't Be Evil" is Google's long-time motto and the protesters were using that to point out how ridiculous the company's position was.

it's been the company's unofficial motto forever. The founder's mission sort of mission statement and reminder to themselves that with great power comes great responsibility. Controlling access to information is a great power. It's not stupid at all.

I'm glad you accept Scout and Girl Scouts for 'Be Prepared.' But can you make it display Girl/Boy Scouts for the actual answer? It only displays Boy Scouts and that is not correct. Otherwise people will not learn the correct answer. Thanks.

This quiz got me thinking about the distinction between a motto and a marketing slogan. "I'm Lovin' It" is definitely a slogan and will someday be replaced with something else. McD's certainly doesn't base their organizational philosophy on that phrase. "Where do you want to go today?" is the same for MSFT; definitely just a temporary marketing lead.

"Just Do It" was once just a slogan, but it seems that it's become part of Nike's DNA. Not sure whether that has happened with "Think Different" at Apple, but it's possible.

I do, although I'm not from USA I think 'From Many One' is more meaningful than 'In God we Trust'. Many people have different Gods and many don't trust in any God. And those that profess to believe in God don't always act like it.

Yes. The original motto was great. The one adopted in the 1950s out of fear in a tribalist panic is ridiculous and goes against many of the most important things upon which the country was founded. It really should be changed back.

"In God We Trust" is such a sad, pathetic downgrade from the real and original motto of the United States: e plurubus unum. Product of a really embarrassing chapter in US history, changed for some really poor reasons, and it ought to be changed back.

Quizmaster, please change the displayed answer for ‘Be Prepared’ from ‘boy scouts’ to ‘scouts’. The name of the organisation is Scouts. Because girls AND boys can join Scouts. I was in the Scouts, and I’m a girl. Your displayed answer is wrong and needs fixing!!
