“From the beginning of time the foremost leaders of men have been prophets. The mightiest forces among men have been prophets. The greatest conquerors of ancient times were not warriors but prophets. Buddha went forth alone on foot and empty handed, yet he won more followers than Alexander conquered with all his armies. Buddha went forth without gold in his purse, or script, or two coats, or shoes; and men beholding him said; ‘There goes a man who has no strings tied to him. He is not bound to anything or anybody, and he can speak without fear. Let us listen to him.’ And they listened, and they gave to every word its face value. So it has always been: the man to whom the people listen and to whom they surrender their hearts is not the man with the sword, but the man who has no axe to grind. All the money in the world, all the guns in the world, cannot speak with the power of a man who can face his fellowmen unafraid because he is neither bound to the world nor bound by it… When a man is not bound to the world men receive him as one who comes from another world. And they listen. They may kill him afterwards but they listen.” (Edward Pell, Our Troublesome Religious Questions, 1916, p.56,57)
