    Can you tell me what this actually means?

    My ex got this as a tattoo, and it would be pretty funny if it's not grammatically correct.

    Amo omnis quod peto justicia.

    Thankies,

    hmm. I am glad to tell you it isnt grammatically correct imo.

    It seems to mean I love all because I seek justice.

    Here is my attempt on a correct version:

    Omnia amo quod iustitiam peto.

    (Note: j didnt exist in latin, thus a consonuntal I which sounded like the y in yak represented it.)

    I do believe the word was iustitia, not iusticia, Interficio.

    As for your translation: it is simply ungrammatical and doesn't function at all. You can't say that that "means" anything.

    I sure hope your EX wasn't going for;

    'I love all who/which seek justice'

    Because then... :disapprove:


    ~Ne~
