Of No Sect Am I

Alexander Pope (1688-1744), "The First Epistle of the First Book of Horace Imitated," lines 23-26:
But ask not, to what Doctors I apply?
Sworn to no Master, of no Sect am I:
As drives the storm, at any door I knock,
And house with Montagne now, or now with Lock.
Horace, Epistles 1.1.13-15:
ac ne forte roges quo me duce, quo lare tuter,
nullius addictus iurare in verba magistri,
quo me cumque rapit tempestas, deferor hospes.
