There's the Ca'Non sentence: {QamvIS Hagh qaq law' torvIS yIn qaq puS}.

Based on the above could we write something like the following?

Suvlu'taHvIS batlh potlh law' yInlu'taHvIS tlhuH potlh puS
honor while fighting is more important than breath while living

or maybe even:

SuvchoHlu'DI' batlh potlh law' yInchoHlu'DI' tlhuH potlh puS
as soon as someone begins to fight honor is more important than breath as
soon he begins to live

Based on the Ca'Non {QamvIS Hagh qaq law' torvIS yIn qaq puS}, could I
construct sentences as the above, or is the QamvIS Hegh.. some kind of
"maltz-said-so-special-phrase-so-shut-up-and-don't-generalize" case?
