Marree
English translation:"Dare to Know!" = "Dare to think for yourself!"
Explanation:
First of all: It's "Sapere aude" not "Sapere audel"

Explanation (quote from website mentioned below): Immanuel Kant, 1724-1804, was a German philosopher, and was most well known for his work in metaphysics. He is responsible for the use of the word "enlightenment" to describe this age of reason, though the expression "age of enlightenment" didn't catch on until later. He also coined the motto of the enlightenment, "sapere aude" dare to think.
