John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:3423
AUTHOR:Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
QUOTATION:For forms of government let fools contest;
Whate’er is best administer’d is best.
For modes of faith let graceless zealots fight;
His can’t be wrong whose life is in the right. 1
In faith and hope the world will disagree,
But all mankind’s concern is charity.
ATTRIBUTION:Essay on Man. Epistle iii. Line 303.
