It is a kind of reply to Gunnar Jarl's comment on my use or a supposedly latin word uihil.
To rephrase Sokrates, The only think that I know, is that I do not know everything. An I must say that my knowledge of latin i rather limited (read: I can't use this language).
Gunnar Jarl suggested that I should use the word 'nihilum', and gave an address of Latin grammar web-site.
Well, I totally agree with Gunnar Jarl - a motto phrase shall not contain errors! 'Ex uihilo kvedam fit is errorous. What about 'Ex nihilum kvedam fit', or 'Ex nihilum non nihil fit'. The last variant is here because I could neither find the word 'kvedam'!
I ask you, Latin gurus, am I wrong again? Can anybody tell me what is the correct Latin phrase for 'Something (coming) from nothing'?!!
