The suicidally disgruntled were legion, And their enemies included any and all Americans, Brits, Canadians, Danes, et cetera; or, conversely, all Moslems, dark-skinned people, non-English-speakers, immigrants; all Catholics, fundamentalists, atheists; all liberals, all conservatives...For such people the consummate act of moral clarity was a lynching or a suicide bombing, a fatwa or a pogrom. And they were ascendant now, rising like dark stars over a terminal landscape.
It is not enough to refuse the Legion d'Honneur.One should never have deserved it.
The cross of the Legion of Honour has been conferred upon me. However, few escape that distinction.
There are those who believe that the sole duty of the poker gamesman is to build up his reputation for impenetrability and toughness by suggesting that he last played poker by the light of a moon made more brilliant by the snows of the Yukon, and that his opponents were two white slave traffickers, a ticket-of-leave man and a deserter from the Foreign Legion. To me this is ridiculously far-fetched, but I do believe that a trace of American accent – West Coast – casts a small shadow of apprehension over the minds of English players.Stephen Potter
[The German Legion] which, in conjunction with Blucher and the Prussians at Waterloo, saved the British Army from destruction.

If the statistics of any of our cities could be taken on this subject you would find that a vast multitude of women not only support themselves, but masculines also.

A woman standing outside the marriage relation is several hundred thousand times better off than a woman badly married.thomas de witt talmage
The spies of the underworld are Legion. Craven crooks, for the most part, they are prey to blackmail.
I came to Bucharest two years ago with a Legion of conquering heroes. I leave with a troupe of gigolos and racketeers!
If I were an impenitent child of godly parents, and should die so, I would rather go into eternity facing a Legion of devils than my mother's prayers.
Caesar judged that he must drop everything else and pursue Pompey where he had betaken himself after his flight, so that he should not be able to gather more forces and renew, and he advanced daily as far as he could go with the cavalry and ordered a Legion to follow shorter stages. An edict had been published in Pompey's name that all the younger men in the province (Macedonia), both Greeks and Roman citizens, should assemble to take an oath.
When Roman engineers built a bridge, they had to stand under it while the first Legion marched across. If programmers today worked under similar ground rules, they might well find themselves getting much more interested in Ada!
Most people think witches are a coven of lesbians dancing naked in the forest celebrating the semen stolen from imprisoned hypnotized males, which they then use to inseminate one another using turkey basters in order to create a Legion of demon babies.
