Buddhism Day by Day: Have Faith in Life & in Human Spirits
“The Important thing is not whether we are optimistic or pessimistic but rather that, while keeping a careful eye on reality, we are neither overwhelmed by it nor content with the status quo. We must keep the lamps of our ideas alight while being ready to pioneer uncharted paths. Faith in life and in human spirits is the necessary foundation for this approach.”
