Famous quotes containing the words won and/or buddhism:

    Only the mob and the elite can be attracted by the momentum of totalitarianism itself. The masses have to be won by propaganda.
    Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)

    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)
