    "What defines us as human? The noted Thai author and diplomat Luang Wichit Wathakan (1898–1962) declared that it was 'struggling against life’s travails, and facing tribulations with courage.'[1]

    "It’s useless to start out vigorously at the forefront and then tire out in the middle and come in last. One can’t remain a trailblazer to the end with only that initial vigour. Staying power is important. In that regard, it’s vital that grassroots efforts be based on careful planning. Trailblazing must be backed up by steadfastness."

    "Certainly things don't always work out as we hope. We experience failures, we have setbacks, and at times we may even lose our drive for life. But at such times, we need to get back on our feet again and advance towards our goals. Having that kind of perseverance is crucial.

    "Tell yourself, 'It's fine that I'm not capable enough yet! I don't care how others see me!' filled with the determination to not be defeated!"

    This wisdom seems perfect for today.

    The inviolable rules of dialogue
    are to "listen" carefully,
    "respect" what the other person has to say
    and always have the attitude to want to "learn" from them.
    Let's become people of sincerity and earnestness!

    Daisaku Ikeda
    I must always remember to do this.

    Nam Myoho Renge Kyo!

    "Those who remain true to their beliefs and refuse to compromise with the powers that be are sure to be caught up in storms of persecution. A true reformer is able to withstand the onslaught of such persecution."

    "The great omens of the “Supernatural Powers” chapter foretold that the essence of the Lotus Sutra would spread widely after the Buddha’s demise, when the two thousand years of the Former and Middle Days of the Law had passed and the Latter Day of the Law had begun."

    "Wishing our partners would practise Buddhism is the natural expression of our concern for happiness in the family. But arguing about religion and allowing it to become a source of conflict is counterproductive. The important thing is to remember our original intent — our partner’s happiness. We should reach out to our partner with words and actions filled with love and kindness. That’s the Buddhist way."

    "Speaking of the power of praise, the Daishonin writes: 'The more gold is heated in the flames, the brighter will be its colour; the more a sword is whetted, the sharper it will become' (WND-1, 673). Let us praise and encourage the innate goodness and talent of children, which are like gold or a fine sword. I hope you will search out each child’s strengths and the areas where they are challenging themselves, sincerely praising them whenever the opportunity presents itself."
