I doubt that this constitutes a belief so much as an expectation...
the world awaits a female Buddha, Socrates, Descartes, et al.
Useless hypotheses: consciousness, phlogiston, philosophy, vitalism, mind,
"Fortune and Fame: the one as fleeting as the other is lasting. The first
for this life, the second for the next: the one against envy, the other
against oblivion: good fortune is desired and may perhaps be wheedled, but
fame must be won; the wish for fame is born of quality; Fama was and is
the sister of giants and she follows only the extraordinary, either the
prodigies, or the monsters, that men acclaim, or hate." --Gracian
