Be Not Defeated by the Wind, Be Not Defeated by the Rain in Japanese is 雨にも負けず風にも負けず which is read ame ni mo makezu kaze ni mo makezu

The Japanese quotation ame ni mo makezu kaze ni mo makezu is the start of a popular poem by Kenji Miyazawa meaning “Be Not Defeated by the Wind, Be Not Defeated by the Rain” and is composed of the word (read ame) meaning “rain”, the grammatical elements にも (read nimo) meaning “even by”, and the verb 負けず which is the imperative negative form of the verb 負かす (read makasu) meaning “to be defeated” (hence it is “do not be defeated”). The second part is similar with the first word, of course, being (read kaze) meaning “rain”.
