Oscar Wilde
Nous portons des chaînes, bien que l'oeil ne les voie pas, et nous sommes esclaves bien qu'on nous appelle des hommes libres.
Or translated into English.
We all live in iron chains, although our eyes can't see them, and we all remain slaves, although we call ourselves free men.
Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (1854 – 1900) was an Irish playwright, novelist, poet, and author of short stories. Known for his barbed wit, he was one of the most successful playwrights of late Victorian London, and one of the greatest celebrities of his day.
