The arousing of faith — whether religious, political, or social, whether faith in a work, in a person, or in an idea — has always been the function of the great leaders of crowds. … To endow a man with faith is to multiply his strength tenfold.

Gustave LeBon (1841-1931) German psychologist
The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind, 2.3.1 (1895)
