"...simply clinging to our life will not result in attaining genuine happiness. It is by establishing a fundamental purpose and pursuing the correct course in life - ready to face any hardship this might entail - that enables us to experience a deep sense of joy and fulfillment. If we allow ourselves to be controlled by shallow desires and begrudge our lives at a crucial moment, then our hearts will wither and only misery and regret will await us."

"In the light of the above points, this shows, my followers, that you had better cut short your sleep by night and curtail your leisure by day, and ponder this! You must not spend your lives in vain and regret it for ten thousand years to come."
(The Problem to Be Pondered Night and Day - The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, Vol.1, page 622)
"Life without hardships may seem more attractive, but it is a shallow, lackluster thing."
(by Daisaku Ikeda, taken from www.ikedaquotes.org)
Do you ponder or day-dream on your bed every morning? When you do, you have two choices: to dream what you like to dream of, or to get up and exert each moment with full effort to realize your dreams. I'll choose the latter one, I hope you will too =)
All the best,
