PAUL PELISSON (PELEISSON OR PELLISSON) FONTANIER
French litterateur
(1624 - 1693)

Fast closed with double grills
  And triple gates--the cell
    To wicked souls is hell;
      But to a mind that's innocent
        'Tis only iron, wood and stone.
          [Fr., Doubles grilles a gros cloux,
            Triples portes, forts verroux,
              Aux ames vraiment mechantes
                Vous representez l'enfer;
                  Mais aux ames innocentes
                    Vous n'etes que du bois, des pierres, du fer.]
      - Written on the walls of his cell in the Bastile,
        about 1661 [Prison]
