Need Esperanto translation help for a tattoo

Postby Si Del Cielo » 2014-09-15, 1:33

Hello, I am planning on getting a tattoo that is a short synopsis of part of my spirituality, which is a twist on the scintific principle which in latin is "Omne Vivum Ex Ovo" - "Every living thing comes from an egg".

I want to say "Not every living thing comes from an egg" in Esperanto. Since it's a tattoo, it's very important that it's precisely correct, so I really don't want to trust Google Translate, haha.

Thank you so much for your help!

Once again, the phrase is "Not every living thing comes from an egg"

Hi, I think that:
Ne nur el ovoj vivuloj venas

can sounds fine. Or lesser literally
iu vivulo ne idas el ovoj
"Someone who lives do not come from eggs"

I'd say "Ne ĉiuj vivaĵoj devenas el ovo."
„Koľko jazykov vieš, toľkokrát si človekom.“
