In Reply to: Stargate phrases posted by Mark on July 20, 2007
: Hi, I would like to know the meaning of some phrases from the tv-series Stargate. The phrases were said from the character Oma Desala:
: "The river tells no lies, yet standing at its shores the dishonest man still hears them"
: "If you immediately know the candlelight is fire, the meal was cooked a long time ago."
: "Lightning flashes, sparks shower, in one blink of your eyes you have mis-seen."
: "A Tall Man Cannot Hide In The Short Grass."
They mean "Hi, I am wise being from a culture that lived millions of years ago. You can tell this because I have my own wise-sounding sayings that you've never heard before."
