Calamity and Difficult Situations

“When meeting calamities or difficult situations, it is not enough to simply say that one is not at all flustered. When meeting difficult situations, one should dash forward bravely and with joy. It is the crossing of a single barrier and is like the saying ‘The more the water, the higher the boat.”Hagakure, The Book of the Samurai
