Faith is perseverance. The key to victory in any struggle in life is persistence. That is why Nichiren stresses the importance of having faith that flows ceaselessly like water rather than faith that flares up briefly like fire. To advance continuously, it is important never to become exhausted. Carrying out activities until late at night does not equate with strong faith.
