It was an uphill struggle
but the view at the top
was worth the climb.
The Hill, though high, I covet to ascend;
The difficulty will not me offend;
For I perceive the way to life lies here:
Come, pluck up, Heart, let's neither faint nor fear;
Better, though difficult, the right way to go,
Than wrong, though easy, where end is woe.
The Pilgrim's Progress - John Bunyan
