When it comes to life, body and soul, we know very little about them. And they are wonderful.
Yutaka Niihara, medical doctor
We know very little about life, body and soul. Although it is hard to admit as a medical doctor, I have to face every day the fact that I know so little about life, body and soul and they are wonderful. I recommend you to treasure them. I believe that if we understand that there is the existence of great love and power, not the power of self, which embraces us; we will find the right cure for the difficult diseases and disabilities.
