Among a very entertaining collection of actual Norse runic love quotes there is one that comes from Virgil, the famous "Love conquers all":



omnia:uinciž:am(or):ęž:nos:cedamus:amor(i)
Omnia vincit amor, et nos cedamus amori
‘Love conquers all; let us too yield to love.’

I don't know what time the original inscription is attributed to, but the entire corpus is from 1150-1350. The discovery was made in Bergen, Norway.
