Re: frasier Klingon

Christopher Doty (suomichris@gmail.com)



Most assuredly.  It looks quite similar to this quote from the Talmud
(Brachot 17A).

"May you live to see your world fulfilled, May you be our link to
future worlds, and may your hope encompass all the generations to be.
May your heart conceive with understanding, may your mouth speak
wisdom and your tongue be stirred with sounds of joy. May your gaze be
straight and sure, your eyes be lit with Torah's lamp, your face aglow
with heaven's radiance, your lips expressing words of knowledge, and
your inner self alive with righteousness. And may you always rush in
eagerness to hear the words of One more ancient than all time."

Dunno if the Frasier version is actually a different section of the
Talmud or a something else?
