In Roman mythology, Veritas, meaning truth, was the goddess of truth.

Veritas is also the name given to the Roman virtue of truthfulness.

This Latin word “veritas” now appears in the mottos of many colleges and universities. It is typically capitalized in mottos (as “Veritas“) for being an ideal (such as: “Truth, Kindness and Beauty”)…

Veritas is the motto of Harvard University, Drake University, Knox College (Illinois), Bilkent University, the University of California – Hastings College of the Law, as well as the Dominican Order of the Roman Catholic Church, and Providence College, which is run by the Dominicans. Veritas is included in the motto of Indiana University and Yale University, Lux et Veritas (“Light and Truth”). It also appears on the California State University’s motto Vox Veritas Vita (“Speak the Truth as a way of Life”). “Veritas vos liberabit” (“The Truth Will Set You Free”) is the motto of The Johns Hopkins University. Veritas Curat (“Truth Cures”) is the motto of the Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research, a medical school in Puducherry, India. Howard University, in Washington, DC, goes by the motto “Veritas et Utilitas”, translated to “Truth and Service”. It also exists in the logo of Seoul University: “Veritas Lux Mea” – meaning “Truth is my light”.

The members of KK Hartman Partners believe in breaking bread together.  It’s not unusual for us to gather at one of our residences on a weekend evening (often a late afternoon start) to enjoy home cooked food, our favorite wines, and exhilarating conversations about a multitude of broad subjects.

It’s also not unusual for us to find ourselves networking with Rotarians, Veterans, and other synergy partners.  And yes, often wine, spirits and elements of bread breaking are involved. We strive to assist our clients and partners to be powerful networkers and connectors.

You’ll see and read in other places throughout our site, references to our future wine making endeavors along with wine making and grape growing metaphors.  Part of assisting our clients and partners in developing their vision for their desired future is modeling the way by fully developing our vision(s) for the desired future, which for Krista and Scott Hartman includes a future winery and expanding beyond the test vineyard they planted in April 2016 on their rural Grayson County farm in North Texas.
