I was trying to translate this famous motto. Is the following correct?
Hoc quoque effluet.
Do you think of a better translation?

I think it is rather a proverb (or idiom if you will), than a motto. I personally remember it since high school as "Solomon's Seal".
Nevertheless, here are some variants I have stumbled upon:
Et hoc abibit
and another variant, which literally should mean "these too shall pass" (i.e. "even this bad time will end one day")
Et haec abibunt
