I continue to maintain that good personal habits, determine the character and destiny of a person. Cumulatively, the aggregate habits of population of a country determine – the destiny of a nation. There is nothing that could go wrong with a nation and it has not come upon Japan – but despite all odds it came out a triumphant winner. The Habits, ladies and gentlemen.
