        What definitely breaks down the wall of obstacles that hinders our advancement towards victory is: the strong determination we make right now to win, the actions that we take from right now and the momentum that we ourselves create by taking the initiative. Let's all live out our lives by fulfilling our noble missions for kosen-rufu!

            "No successful person has led a life that was only smooth sailing without exerting great effort. No one has ever triumphed in life without experiencing failures and setbacks. True victors in life are those who have persevered arduously through hardship, stood on the edge of despair many times, yet pressed forward tenaciously, again and again."

                      "The true measure of a person lies in their state of life. Living an idle existence without any worries or cares in a comfortable environment is not conducive to inner growth. Rather than achieving human revolution, one will only grow lazy and stagnate. In contrast, it could be said that adversity is the mother of inner transformation."

                            "What a joy it is for us to have been born in the Latter Day of the Law and to have shared in the propagation of the Lotus Sutra! How pitiful are those who, though born in this time, cannot believe in this sutra!"

                              "Passion for kosen-rufu arises from community spirit. It is love for our communities that drives us to 'establish the correct teaching for the peace of the land,' efforts to further kosen-rufu in our local areas."

                                "(Although I and my disciples may encounter various difficulties, if we do not harbour doubts in our hearts, we will as a matter of course attain Buddhahood. Do not have doubts simply because heaven does not lend you protection. Do not be discouraged because you do not enjoy an easy and secure existence in this life.) This is what I have taught my disciples morning and evening, and yet they begin to harbour doubts and abandon their faith. Foolish men are likely to forget the promises they have made when the crucial moment comes."
