    Smile Please explain the meaning

    I found the phrase: But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds.

    Can you explain me the phrase: patterns behind?
    Can I use it in other sentences, for example: Only he knows patterns behind his words.??

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: Please explain the meaning

    Clouds form patterns because of atmospheric conditions, etc, I don't think that this could be directly applied to your example with words- there's a change in meaning to me- if there are patterns behind words, there are secret messages, etc, which are not present in the clouds example.

    Russians translated this phrase in such way:

    But only sky knows why and where the clouds move.


    Thank you very much. That's like the hidden meaning of something, As I understand)))))
