Famous quotes containing the word legendary:

    All legendary obstacles lay between
    Us, the long imaginary plain,
    The monstrous ruck of mountains
    John Montague (b. 1929)

    By many a legendary tale of violence and wrong, as well as by events which have passed before their eyes, these people have been taught to look upon white men with abhorrence.... I can sympathize with the spirit which prompts the Typee warrior to guard all the passes to his valley with the point of his levelled spear, and, standing upon the beach, with his back turned upon his green home, to hold at bay the intruding European.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Is it the old, legendary monster of my father’s time? Or am I supposed to have whipped one up, as a housewife whips up an omelette?
    Willis Cooper, and Rowland V. Lee. Wolf von Frankenstein (Basil Rathbone)
