Latin Phrase: Labor Omnia Vincit

by Elizabeth

Please can you translate: "Labor omnia vincit improbus"

Hi Elizabeth,

See a previous post for comments about your Latin phrase: labor omnia vincit.

The additional word in your phrase above, improbus, being masculine and singular, must modify labor. And so turns your line to: wicked work conquers all.

Not sure of the usefulness of that one. If you changed improbus to improba, then it would modify omnia and it would mean: work conquers all wicked things.

Hope this helps and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
