Be victorious for the sake of society and yourself

Whatever obstacles may confront you
Live on undefeated
Ever polishing your inner gem
Leave a history of accomplishment
For the sake of society
And for yourself.

--Daisaku Ikeda, SGI President

Give your all!

People shouldn't hesitate to exert their all, in a way true to themselves. How can you possibly ever know how far or fast you can go if you've never run all-out? To give up even before you've tried is actually arrogance--an affront to the wondrous power of life within you and disrespectful to yourself. It is cowardly.

Courage is needed to achieve your dreams

No matter how wonderful our dreams, how noble our ideals, or how high our hopes. ultimately we need courage to make them a reality. Without action, it's as if they never existed.
