“A blue fly, if it clings to the tail of a thoroughbred horse, can
travel ten thousand miles, and the green ivy that twines around the  tall pine can grow to a thousand feet.”

—- DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT —-
“Discrediting the just through malicious lies and false rumours has been an uchanging pattern of persecution throughout human history. If those who are in the right allow themselves to be disturbed by such attacks and are prompted to rash action, 
they can fall into their opponents’ trap and become the 
cause of their own undoing.
            
“As the Daishonin states: ‘Though worldly troubles may 
arise, never let them disturb you. No one can avoid problems, 
not even sages or worthies’ (WND-1, 681; ‘Happiness in This World’). 
We must learn to calmly see the essence of things.
            
“In the letter, ‘The Eight Winds,’ the Daishonin warns Shijo Kingo: 
‘You must beware and act cautiously’ (WND-1, 794).”
