@wildflower92490,
Oh, would it be something like "Sum erus mei fati" ?

Erus fati mei sum
would be the more common word order
I'd probably go with "dominus" over "erus".
Dominus fati mei sum
but both are correct.

Could someone translate " give all, or nothing" (give ME all...give YOUR all...)? This would be something a coach or personal trainer would use as a moto. Thanks in advance...you guys are great

Can you translate "To live is to think" into latin for me. I'm not positive of the translation and my friend wants it for a tatoo. (My latin isn't that great)
I can think of a couple ways to translate it like "Vivare est cogitare" but I'm not sure if that's right or if that's the best way to go about it.

Thanks!

Thanks in advance!

Sub sole nihil novi est
There is nothing new under the sun

Ad aspera per aspera
I think you mean "Ad astra per aspera"
To the stars through difficulties

quaerite prime regnum dei
Seek first the kingdom of heaven

Ante bellum
Before the war

memento mori
remember death (literally "remember to die")

Hi

Okay, I gotta make sure I get this exactly right.

When we say, "ex nihilo", we are saying "out of nothing".

And so, if we wanted to say the opposite, "out of everything", it would be "ex omnibus"?

Would it not be "ex omnia"? If not, why not? Could you say "ex omnia"?

Thanks for the help,

T.

It would be "omnibus" because it is the object of the preposition "ex" ("out of")
and takes the ablative case.

@Haydz,
just to add to my post, i did a bit of digging and i *think* it comes down to what word i use for challenge. none of the online dictionaries seem to have challenge listed, so i tried 'test' and 'trial'. which one of the following would be closer to 'challenge' ?
periclitor, experior, experiri, expertus

and then according to some of the translators, it says it should be
"is (one of the above words) mos nunquam effrego mihi"

is this correct, or is there a better way of saying it?

@Haydz,
Automated online translators pay little attention to grammar. They pull words
out of their database and string them together.

I'd translate it like this:
haec provocatio me nunquam franget
-or like this-
hoc impedimentum me nunquam franget

In the second case, I used "impedimentum" which means "obstacle" or
"difficulty" rather than "provocatio" which means "challenge" and which has
the sense of calling someone out.
