Buddhism Day by Day: Many People Talk About Peace, but Few do Anything About it
“Many people talk about peace, but few do anything about it. Very few are willing to fight the battle to the end. Josei Toda instilled in me the hard and fast rule that, even if we stand alone, we must never give up but must see the struggle through its conclusion.
The year before he died, he said something I have never forgotten for a minute: ‘If we don’t fight, justice will be defeated. Because justice is on our side, we must not lose, we absolutely must win. That’s why we fight. The lion is most lionlike when he roars.”
