"There is nothing to lament when we consider that we will surely become Buddhas. Even if one were to become an emperor's consort, of what use would it be? Even if one were to be reborn in heaven, what end would it serve?"

"Nichiren Daishonin writes: 'It is the heart that is important' (WND-1, 1000).
"The heart is invisible, but it has the power to significantly change our visible reality. In accord with the Mystic Law, the great law governing all life, a fundamental change in one person's heart not only transforms their own life, but also transforms society and the land in which they live. The doctrine of 'three thousand realms in a single moment of life' taught in Nichiren Buddhism explains this.
"The Daishonin assures us that all actions that arise out of faith, based on a wish for the happiness of both ourselves and others, 'will implant benefits and roots of goodness in [our] life' (cf. WND-1, 4). Our heart, our mind, determines everything."
