Life is painful. It has thorns, like the stem of a rose. Culture and art are the roses that bloom on the stem. The flower is yourself, your humanity. Art is the liberation of the humanity inside yourself.
New Updates! (5/23/2013) We've been working really hard on completing our new design and adding more member features. Once this is complete in the coming weeks there will be a lot more quotes by Daisaku Ikeda and other authors. We've also changed the sorting on the site so you now see the latest Daisaku Ikeda quotes first. Our goal is to have the best Daisaku Ikeda quotes on the web!
