Fulton J. Sheen on Buddha’s Code of Ethics

Thought of the Day:

“Buddha wrote a code which he said would be useful to guide men in darkness, but he never claimed to be the ‘Light of the World.’ Buddhism was born with a disgust for the world, when a prince's son deserted his wife and child, turning from the pleasures of existence to the problems of existence. Burnt by the fires of the world, and already weary with it, Buddha turned to ethics.”

— Fulton J. Sheen, Life of Christ
