	I can see it already, this is going to be like that endless
and fascinating compilation of auto-antonyms. So here's my contribution -
is it Victor Hugo?
	Gall, amant de la reine, alla, tour magnanime,
	galamment de l'arene a la Tour Magne, a Nimes.

	(Gall, the queen's lover, went - a magnanimous gesture -
	galantly from the arena to the Tour Magne, at Nimes.)
	
	Best, Larry Rosenwald
