|A prison is a house of care, a place where none can thrive;|
A touchstone true to try a friend, a grave for one alive.
Sometimes a place of right, sometimes a place of wrong,
Sometimes a place of rogues and thieves and honest men among. Inscription on Edinburgh old Tolbooth.
|It is better to make conditions in the bush than in prison. Danish.|| 2|
