Of Passion, Happiness and Love

Sharing 3 guidances from President Ikeda on passion, happiness and love.

"Without passion, hope and hard work, you cannot be called a youth. If you don’t live with pride and passion, you are nothing but a living corpse. Youths with passion are important. In you are awakened to your mission, passion will naturally well forth from deep within your lives."

"Happiness is not dependent on your circumstances; the important thing is to proudly live out your life to the fullest right where you are. There is no need to lament your fate, and absolutely no reason to envy others. Just continue to challenge yourselves with courage and confidence."

"Real love is not two people clinging to each other. It can only be fostered between two strong people secure in their individuality. A shallow person will have only shallow relationships. If you want to experience real love, it is important to first sincerely develop a strong self-identity."
