Latin term or phrase: Nunc scio quit sit amor.
i'm not sure what to put here. I was just wondering what "Nunc scio quit sit amor." ( which I believe is latin) is translated into english. I think it's something like "I know now what love is" but i'm not sure. Could you help me out?

Now I know what love is
Explanation:
- so you are right about the translation. However, in the Latin version it should be quid instead of "quit".

It's a quotation from Virgil's 8th eclogue.

Now I know what Love is.

Love might mean the god of Love (here masculine, therefore "Cupid").

NUNC: "now"
SCIO: "I know"
QUID: "what"
SIT: "is" [subjunctive form of the verb "be", required by the indirect-quotation form of this question]
AMOR: "love"
