  • Amantes amentes: The ones in love are crazy

(Notes: Amantes:the ones in love,amentes:a privative + mens meaning brain,[logic here],sunt:are,the verb that can be inferred)

  • Omnia vincit amor:Love wins everything

(Notes:omnia:everything,vincit[from the verb vinco]:wins,amor:love)

  • Res,non verba:Deeds,not words

(Notes: res:actions,deeds[here,it literally means thing],non:not,verba:words[from the noun verbum in singular])

  • Verba volant,scripta manent:Spoken words fly away,written words remain
