[ Winter always turns into Spring ] Amsterdam.

“What makes the bliss of spring real is the winter that the precedes. Only when the rigors of winter are overcome can you delight in a spring of triumph.
Winter can be a function that activates inherent power and latent potential. When we resist and overcome the winter difficulties and emerge victorious through our practice of the mystic Law, we can make the bright flowers of victory radiate in our lives.
The key to our victory lies in the intensity and passion with which we can fight during the winter, and the wisdom with which we use that period, how significantly we live each day, with the conviction that spring will come, without fail.”
Excerpt from Daisaku Ikeda’s dissertation on “Winter always becomes spring”. Fascicle 45 of Towards the 80th anniversary of Soka Gakkai, July 20, 2008
