"Ex oriente lux" is a latin phrases 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Latin_phrases_%28E%29 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Latin_phrases_(E)

but I found that there is a second part of this phrase. However as I wrote in my first post, I found three different version.

My question is what is the origin of this phrases? Which writer and which book? Is it just "ex oriente lux" and second parts added later (maybe like that because english wiki taking it as just "Ex oriente lux" )
or is there one true original second part?
