I’ve been reading a Beginner’s Latin book in Japanese, and was fascinated by how interesting Latin is. 

For example, bellus which means beautiful becomes bella in feminine form. (bellus is masculine form)

Amor Vincit Omnia means “Love conquers all things”. The word “omnia” reminds me of the word omnipotent, meaning all-powerful.

It is really interesting know the meaning of root words which make up the English words.

I think I will be studying more of Latin in the coming months.
