The apprenticeship of difficulty is one which the greatest of men have had to serve.
The very greatest things -- great thoughts, discoveries, inventions -- have usually been nurtured in hardship, often pondered over in sorrow, and at length established with difficulty.
The work of many of the greatest men, inspired by duty, has been done amidst suffering and trial and difficulty. They have struggled against the tide, and reached the shore exhausted.
Many men owe the grandeur of their lives to their tremendous difficulties.

Triumphs without difficulties are empty. Indeed; it is difficulties that make the triumph. It is no feat to travel the smooth road.
If things are natural, they're easy. If they're unnatural they're difficult. I have never met a man who found it difficult to marry, but I have never found a man who found it easy to divorce either.
Difficulties are stepping stones to success.
A Christian is like a tea bag -- he's not worth much until he's been through some hot water.
