Omnia mutantur is a Latin phrase meaning "everything changes". It is most often used as part of two other phrases:

  • Omnia mutantur, nihil interit ("everything changes, nothing perishes"), by Ovid in his Metamorphoses, and
  • Omnia mutantur nos et mutamur in illis ("everything changes, and we change with them"), a traditional saying, found in various forms, notably Tempora mutantur nos et mutamur in illis
  • Possible translation edit: "omnia" being plural, and "everything" being singular, the translation in the second bullet point above might read "All things change, and we change with them", or "Everything changes, and we change with it".
