For forms of government let fools contest;
Whate’er is best administered is best:
For modes of faith let graceless zealots fight;
His can’t be wrong whose life is in the right.
In faith and hope the world will disagree,
But all mankind’s concern is charity.

Alexander Pope (1688-1744) English poet
“An Essay on Man,” Epistle 3, l. 303 (1733-1734)
