This is from Antoine Ferdinand Van Vlaenderen's Epigrammata Miscellanea, published in 1666:

Omnia vincit amor, sed amorem Cynthia vicit;
Fertur enim nullum nosse Diana virum.

The vocabulary is keyed to the DCC Latin Vocabulary list. There are only two words in this poem that are not on the DCC list:

Cynthia (Cynthiae, f.): Cynthia, epithet of Diana
Diāna (Diānae, f.): Diana, virgin goddess of the hunt

amor -ōris m.: love
enim: for, indeed
ferō ferre tulī lātum: bear, carry
nōscō nōscere nōvī nōtum: learn, know
nūllus -a -um: not any, no one
omnis -e: all, every, as a whole
sed: but
vincō vincere vīcī victum: conquer
vir virī m.: man
