Nichiren Daishonin states in “Letter to Lord Ni’ike”:
It is said that the Kankucho bird in the Snow Mountains suffers the cold at night, and cries out that it will build a nest after dawn. But when the sun rises, it is lulled to sleep in the warmth of the morning sun, and again, does not build its nest. It continues to screech uselessly throughout its whole life. The same applies to humans.

宗祖日莲大圣人于《新池御书》曰:

雪山之寒苦鸟,被寒苦折磨,虽夜中鸣叫,天亮必造巢;但日出,贪眠于朝阳之温暖;忘寒苦,不造巢。又得夜鸣,如此虚度一生。一切众生,亦复如是。
