JEANNE GUYET

(c. 1634 - 1689)

La ligne, avec sa canne, est un long instrument,
  Dont le plus mince bout tient un petit reptile,
    Et dont l'autre est tenu par un grand imbecile.
      - French version of lines attributed to Samuel Johnson
        [Fishing]

The line with its rod is a long instrument whose lesser end holds a small reptile, while the other is held by a great fool.
  [Fr., La ligne avec sa canne est un long instrument,
    Dont le plus mince bout tient un petit reptile,
      Et dont Pautre est tenu pau un grand imbecile.]
      - allegedly by [Fishing]
