Fables - Jean de La Fontaine, Jean-Pierre Collinet

Rare as is true love, true friendship is rarer. 


Jean de La Fontaine


According to popular rumor, French poet Jean de La Fontaine (born July 8, 1621) challenged his wife's lover to a duel. After the fight, which resulted in little injury, La Fontaine insisted that the man carry on visiting his wife.
