present infinitive vs present infinitive active

Hi I've got the following phrases (I didn't know any latin until today)
"amo aqua , egeo in aqua vivere"
I would like them to mean:
"I love water, I want to live in water"

What I got is that vivere is in present infinitive active and if I would take for example redire that is in present infinitive. is vivere correct grammatically in this case, or should it be for example "vivo"?
Also, is ...

relatively simple translation (?)

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

There must be a dozen translations for readiness in Latin, but I cannot for the life of me figure out the most legitimate for a coat of arms..

It's been many years since I studied Latin, and of course my old latin teacher is currently out of the country.. Please can anyone help with this translation? I believe it would have ...

what are the kids listening to?

It's the start of a new school year and I'm wondering what's making its rounds on campus.

I'm in serious need of some new tunes. I try to stay on top of music but lately I have been listening to the same stuff over and over and over.

Lately I have been listening to a lot of:

Interpol (um, you're missing out if you haven't heard their tunes)
Death Cab for Cutie
British Sea Power ...

Does anyone have a personal Greek verse about arete, perferably in poetry? I'm thinking of something along the lines of Iliad or Odyssey. I know of plenty of Socratic verses, but this is something that a poet would quote. Thanks

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....^_^;;)
