14 May

Nichiren Daishonin states in “Reply to Shijo Kingo”:

Unforged steel melts instantly when put into a burning fire, just as ice melts in hot water. But a sword will not melt right away, even if it is placed in a roaring fire, because it has been tempered and forged.

宗祖日莲大圣人于《四条金吾殿御返事》曰:
(别名《告诫书》)

未锻之金,入火疾融,如冰入热汤中。
剑等入于火中, 不即融, 曾经锻炼故也。
