I've been practicing for about 10 years now, and am currently an Area YWD leader.
My two current favorite quotes:
"Never be defeated. I never was, no matter what challenges I faced. For as a disciple personally trained by that great lion king, Josei Toda, I refuse to be defeated... I took full responsibility on my own, not relying on leaders who, though senior to me, were fainthearted and indecisive. I want you, my young friends, to do the same." President Ikeda, WT 1/30/09
"If you can show me how i can cling to that which is real to me, while teaching me a way into the larger society, then I will not only drop my defenses and my hostility, but I will sing your praises and help you make the desert bear fruit." Ralph Ellison, as quoted by Nathan Gauer in LB Mar-Apr 2009
