"However great the good causes one may make, or even if one reads and copies the entirety of the Lotus Sutra a thousand or ten thousand times, or attains the way of perceiving three thousand realms in a single moment of life, if one fails to denounce the enemies of the Lotus Sutra, it will be impossible to attain the way."
(Encouragement to a Sick Person
- The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, Vol 1, page 78)

"Please lead brilliant lives that are diamond-like and indestructible. Indeed, may you all become 'diamonds' of happiness that sparkle with the radiance of your beautiful hearts. To do so, please never fear hardships. Don't allow yourselves to be defeated by unfounded criticism. Rather, be grateful for all obstacles, because they help you polish and develop yourselves."
