"There is no way to be a good person without making any efforts,
doing nothing. But if we bring to bear the sort of confidence and
sincere determination that says, “I don’t care what happens;
no matter what, I will be a good person in the world;
it is not alright for everyone in the world to be deceitful,
with bad intentions and behaving badly,
so I myself will be a good person,” in that case,
I think at that point we can become good people without difficulty.
I think it can basically come about without hardship."
