Latin translation:Omnia vincit Amor.
Explanation:
"Omnia vincit Amor."

You pronounce it something like: "OHM-nee-ah WINK-it AH-mor," in the classical Latin of Vergil's time. Many people use medieval or church Latin pronunciation, however, which would be: "OHM-nee-ah VIN-chit AH-mor."

The direct object, OMNIA ("everything, all things" in the neuter plural form) comes first in the original quotation from Vergil.

The verb is VINCIT ("conquers, beats").

The subject is AMOR is the last word in the original quotation.
