Secrecy proverb

A secrecy proverb (in Klingon: peghmeH vIttlhegh) is said to reinforce or acknowledge that something is said in secret(1).


Several other secrecy proverbs were given on the audio tape Power Klingon:

Hov ghajbe'bogh ram rur pegh ghajbe'bogh jaj.
A day without secrets is like a night without stars.

De' lI' Sovlu'DI' chaq Do'Ha'.
Knowledge of useful information may be unfortunate.

not mev peghmey.
Secrets never cease.

jIjatlhpa' jatlh Hovmey.
The stars will talk before I will.

At the 21st qep'a' in 2014, there was a competition where one new secrecy proverb (also one replacement proverb) was chosen by Marc Okrand from dozens of suggestions, submitted by the attendees. The winning proverb was suggested by Lawrence M. Schoen(2)

'Iw HIq yap tu'lu'be'
Sufficient blood wine does not exist.
