The phrase "Love conquers all" is itself a translation from Latin: it comes from the Tenth Eclogue of the Roman poet Virgil (P. Vergilius Maro), where it appears as Omnia vincit amor.

Since Latin uses case endings to indicate grammatical function, rather than relying on word order as does English, Latin word order is very free (particularly in poetry). Consequently any of the following orders is possible, and all are equally "correct" from the grammatical point of view:

  • omnia vincit amor
  • omnia amor vincit
  • amor vincit omnia
  • amor omnia vincit
  • vincit omnia amor
  • vincit amor omnia

Quidquid te furiat, te vincit (lit. whatever angers you, conquers you.) OR Aliquid, quod te furiat, te vincit (which is closer to the English, but less Latin in flavor)

The English word 'Timeless' means the same as 'Eternal' in Latin. Therefore the correct Latin translation would be: aeternus (m), aeterna (f), aeternum (n).

The English equivalent of the Latin statement 'Amor vincit omnia' is Love conquers all. In the word-by-word translation, the noun 'amor' means 'love'. The verb 'vincit' means '[he/she/it] conquers, does conquer, is conquering'. The noun 'omnia' means 'all'.

The word 'de' is a misspelling in the otherwise correct Latin phrase 'in de domini'. The correct phrasing is the following: in die Domini. The word-by-word translation is the following: 'in' means 'in'; 'dei' '[the] day'; and 'Domini' 'of the Lord'. And so the English equivalent is exactly that: In the day of the Lord.
