"If only I could tear it down and free myself!" shouted Anatole.
"You've got to get a hold of yourself," Francois shot back. "Accept what is!"
"I'll never accept it! I am tormented by this barbed wire fence all around us!"
“I knew things would eventually come to this, Anatole. The way you’re always questioning, always doubting, always mouthing off.”
“How do you stand it, Francois?"
“I accept things as is.”
Anatole and Francois packed up their gear and climbed into the Francois and Anatole’s Fence Company truck.
"Look, Anatole, it's a good fence and the customer was satisfied," said Francois. "You've got to stop being such a perfectionist!"

As for Anatole, he is imprisoned not by a fence but by his own mind. And that may be the worst imprisonment of all.
