It’s commonly believed that the US Postal Service (USPS) operates under the motto, “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”. The romantic and heroic title has been connected to them for decades. However, it was never officially adopted by them.
The motto originates from the entrance of the James A. Farley building at Eighth Avenue and 33rd Street in Manhattan. The imposing gray granite building is built to echo the Neoclassical style and looms powerfully over the people walking on the sidewalk.
The phrase itself comes from book 8, paragraph 98, of The Persian Wars by Herodotus, a Greek Historian. It was a fitting tribute to the men and women who have valiantly delivered mail, communications and packages to the people of this country.
