15: This isn't a product or company either but I'm sure everyone has heard it once from somewhere. Amore Vincit Omnia is Latin for "Love Conquers All" and it has relevance to my life because with love you can accomplish anything. With love you can help the people you care about by letting them know you love them and that you'll always be there. Also "Love your enemy" comes into play here as well because if you don't show suffering, but show love it can change the way your enemy looks at you. I learned this in my Latin class and it has honestly changed the way I act towards people. This three word phrase has made me a better person.
