Where is the verse love conquers all?

This phrase is not in the Bible.

Thanks for your question. 

There is no such phrase in the Bible.  However, Romans 8:37 comes close and the whole of 1 Corinthians 13 is devoted to that theme.

The origin of the phrase is from the Latin poet, Virgil [70 BC - 19 BC], who wrote "Amor omnia vincit" and was quoted in English by the first great author of English prose, Chaucer [about 1350 AD]. From Chaucer the English translation of "Amor onia vincit", "Love conquers all", passed into general usage.
