John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:5562
AUTHOR:John Pierpont (1785–1866)
QUOTATION:A weapon that comes down as still
  As snowflakes fall upon the sod;
But executes a freeman’s will,
  As lightning does the will of God;
And from its force nor doors nor locks
Can shield you,—’t is the ballot-box.
ATTRIBUTION:A Word from a Petitioner.
