I'm in university and in creative writing they asked us to write a short story. I chose a mystery story and composed this sentence for it:

Omni usurpant optimes sapientes virtutes acceptum verum vitam.

I tried hard to make it look like the decoded message from the Shugborough statue. I know it is not syntactically correct, but does it make any sense? And what should I change to make it grammatically better?

    'The best wise works usurp the true taking of life for everyone.' That's the best sense I can make out of it, although even then it's shaky. What did you mean to say? – Anonym Mar 7 '18 at 18:41
