“Tell the people you love, ‘I love you’ often because life is short.  But shout it at them in Klingon because life is also confusing and terrifying.”  -unknown Trekkie

Further clarification:

As there is no verb in Klingon that directly translates the general English verb love, one must find a more specific translation. What nuance of meaning is desired?

I do the opposite of hating or detesting you: qamuSHa’

I intensely like you: qaparHa’qu’

I completely or perfectly care about you: qaSaHchu’

You are my loved one: bangwI’ SoH

I experience romantic/aggressive feelings toward you: SoHvaD parmaq vISIQ

You’re wonderful: bIDun

…The “correct” translation depends on the situation.

“When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.” –Tecumseh

4.79 Ruskin Dawn Life Begins Sunset Life Ends

By: John Ruskin (1819-1900)

“The Two Paths” is a collection of five lectures delivered in 1858 and 1859 by John Ruskin on art and architecture. This is how the author himself presents the book: “The following addresses, though spoken at different times, are intentionally connected in subject; their aim being to set one or two main principles of art in simple light before the general student, and to indicate their practical bearing on modern design. The law which it has been my effort chiefly to illustrate is the dependence of all noble design, in any kind, on the sculpture or painting of Organic Form.” The most famous of these, the fifth lecture, is commonly known simply as “The Work of Iron”
