Walls, Lines and Frontier Fortifications

"Good fences make good neighbours"

Bonum est erigere dumos cum vicinis

"Before I built a wall, I'd ask to know
What I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offence."
"Mending Wall" by Robert Frost

Thou shalt call thy walls Salvation and thy gates Praise.
Isaiah 60:18
