Provide for all
With each issue of Scots Heritage I look forward to reading about another clan, and the Clan Oliphant article was no exception. The rise from the ashes of a new Clan Chief after 260 years seems incredible, and congratulations must go to Richard Oliphant for his tenacity in working through the family ancestry to figure it all out. One thing that I especially noted is the Clan Oliphant motto, ‘Tout pourvoir’ or Provide for All, which does seem a much more worthy sentiment than my own Gunn clan motto, ‘Aut pax aut bellum’ – Either Peace or War!
