— TO MY FRIENDS —
Wherever there is hope,
the sun of victory rises.
No matter how hard our situation might be right now,
confront it with the never-give-up spirit
and try to take on that challenge with an optimistic attitude.
Let’s bravely open up a path towards victory!

“If you want to understand the causes that existed in the past, look at 
the results as they are manifested in the present. And if you want to 
understand what results will be manifested in the future, look at the 
causes that exist in the present.”

279) Selection source: “Suntetsu”, Seikyo Shimbun, Oct 4th, 2014

—- DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT —-

“The important thing is to give your all in challenging whatever task is in front of you, and to try many things, even if you don’t have a clear idea of what your dream is.
            
“No effort is ever wasted. Each step you take forwards, doing your best, eventually leads you towards success and the realisation of your dreams.
“There may well be times when you feel lost. But there’s no need to be anxious. Even if you end up taking the long way around, make that journey an opportunity for fresh discoveries and enjoy the scenery along the way. In the process, you may find another wonderful pathway or a new dream to pursue.
            
“What’s crucial is having courage and not being afraid of failure. Please persevere with the unflagging conviction that your dreams will someday come true.”
SGI Newsletter No. 9098, Spread Your Wings toward the Future, [1] The Highway in Los Angeles, from 1st April, 2014, issue of the Mirai [Future] Journal, translation released 2nd Oct., 2014
