“How can you light the flame of passion in the hearts of others if that flame isn’t burning in your own? . . . How can you expect people to strive alongside you if you are not striving hard yourself? . . . The flame of our own wholehearted fighting spirit is what ignites in others’ hearts the flame of the vow to dedicate one’s life to kosen-rufu.”

SGI Newsletter No. 9114, Advancing Worldwide Kosen-rufu through One-on-One Interactions, from the February 2014 issue of the Daibyaku-renge, translation released 30th Oct., 2014.
