Try Hard

For instance, you know, in morning time we clean our room. But we don't have enough rags or brooms, so it is almost impossible to participate in our cleaning. So what you should do is to find out something to do [laughs].

Not looking for zingers or "the best of." I find that following these excerpts daily provides another way to experience Suzuki's teaching.
