Nichiren Daishonin states in “The Three Kinds of Treasure”:

It is rare to be born a human being. The number of those endowed with human life is small as the amount of earth one can place on a fingernail. Life as a human being is hard to sustain — as hard as it is for the dew to remain on the grass. But it is better to live a single day with honor than to live to one hundred and twenty and die in disgrace.

宗祖日莲大圣人于《崇峻天皇御书》曰:

人身难受,如爪上之土。人身难持,如草上之露。持寿一百二十,污名而死,不如仅生一日,而扬其名为贵。
