KLBC: Quote


I'd like to use a quote from Kahless as my part of my signature.
The quote is this:

may' QapmeH wo' Qaw'lu'chugh, vaj Qaplu'be'
'ej wo' toDmeh may' mevlu'chugh, vaj lujlu'be'

And it should mean :
"Destroying an empire to win a battle is not victory
and ending a battle to save an empire is no defeat".

Apparently I couldn't find a way to translate the "ing" form so I used an
impersonal subject... or sort of.
