Famous quotes containing the words buddhism and/or japanese:

    A religion so cheerless, a philosophy so sorrowful, could never have succeeded with the masses of mankind if presented only as a system of metaphysics. Buddhism owed its success to its catholic spirit and its beautiful morality.
    W. Winwood Reade (1838–1875)

    I am a lantern—
    My head a moon
    Of Japanese paper, my gold beaten skin
    Infinitely delicate and infinitely expensive.
    Sylvia Plath (1932–1963)
