Some of my favorite quotes I refer to as principles. One of them comes from Shorinji Kempo, a martial art that I’ve been practicing for the last 10 years.
In japanese it’s “åŠ›æ„›ä¸äºŒ” (“riki ai funi”), which means that strength and love stand together. The founder of Shorinji Kempo, Doshin So, argued that
â€œStrength without love is nothing more than violence, and love without strength is powerless.â€œ
I try to live by that every day, and it guides me in being a mindful person who act with strength in my care for others.
