Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido (06)

It is said that men are miniature universes and also models of the cosmos. Men are born and die according to biological principles by repeatedly reproducing themselves. We lead our lives sometimes in the world of the living and sometimes in the world of the spirit. Throughout man’s eternal life, he experiences numerous trials from the time of his birth to his death.

As long as you are alive you have many things you must accomplish.
