Hello, and welcome. You’re listening to DaHjaj Hol, your daily dose of Klingon language. I’m your host, Lawrence Schoen.

Welcome to Proverb Day. Consider well the following bit of Klingon wisdom:

HIvbe’ qoHpu’ neH
only fools don’t attack


Sayings like this tell us a lot about the culture. Can you imagine the implications of this proverb? What do you think it reveals about the Klingon heart? What ideas does this notion make possible? What worlds does this kind of language open up for you? Because all these things are happening, every time you utter a sentence, even one as simple as this. Three words, and you’ve started a plethora of ideas spinning round. Powerful stuff, huh? qo’mey poSmoH Hol.

Good stuff although that proverb kinda preaches retaliation.
Go klingon!!

It’s not “retaliation” if you attack first.
