What does this translate to? It is on the the family coat of arms and Latin indicates "I fly upwards to see"? or "I am willing to look upwards"? Is this close? Having difficulty finding this simple info. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. JimQ.

It is Latin for "I wish to see what is beyond," rather..

I grew up being told it meant "I wish to see what is above", above or beyond this is probably a good close translation.
