"amo aqua , egeo in aqua vivere"

Also, is ...

Our family coat of arms has a knights helm with a "be ready!" motto..

Double negatives in Latin

The other day I came upon the phrase, "Is non modo hoc non perfecit." (It was followed by an 'ut' clause.) Try as I might, I simply couldn't get a meaning to fit.

That got me thinking about double negatives. I know in English double negatives are awkward and boorish and gramatically incorrect, but are they allowed in Latin? (Or maybe I'm just missing something completely....^_^;;)

This is a weird translation, but...

How do you translate "genie"? Like the dude in Aladin, the celestial thingy in the lamp, you know. I am writing a buddhist requiem for someone who passed away in latin, this was her nickname, so any help would greatly be appreciated.

Translation help

Someone asked me to translate the following into Latin:

"Therefor I speak Latin and you do not."

My Latin sucks bigtime, I started learning it some time ago but I can't find the time right now. I need to start over anyway ;). This is all I could find:

proinde = "therefor"
loquor latine = "I speak latin"

I'm not sure if I should use loquor or ...
