Pearl S. Buck
“I reminded myself that time takes care of many things. Asia had thought me that.”
Pearl S. Buck, A Bridge for Passing

Daisaku Ikeda
“changing the destiny of one individual in the word today, it becomes possible to change the destiny of all mankind”
Daisaku Ikeda

Yasushi Inoue
“I want to live so that everything around me remains clean. I want to think about other people more. Pushing people out of the way and trying to climb over their heads are no good. Chasing nothing but money – that's no good eiher, like knocking your brains out trying to be a little more famous, a little more powerful. To hear the birds song and to say "Ah, they're singing!" To see the flowers and to say "Ah they're blooming!" That,s the way to live.”
Yasushi Inoue

Yasushi Inoue
“I longed to devote my life to something valuable with a fervor that would consume my being. Young people today probably think the same way. But in our time we were not left to ourselves as they are. All of us believed in some kind of god. We believed in a scholar or in scholarship itself; we believed that right actually exists. All that kind of thing has been swept away, and philosophy, religion and morality must be created anew, from the ground up.”
Yasushi Inoue

V.S. Naipaul
“Out of all its squalor and human decay, its eruptions of butchery, India produced so many people of grace and beauty, ruled by elaborate courtesy. Producing too much life, it denied the value of life; yet it permitted a unique human development to so many. Nowhere were people so heightened, rounded and individualistic; nowhere did they offer themselves so fully and with such assurance. To know Indians was to take a delight in people as people; every encounter was an adventure. I did not want India to sink; the mere thought was painful.”
V.S. Naipaul, An Area of Darkness
