There is no merit where there is no trial; and, till experience stamps the mark of strength, cowards may pass for heroes, faith for falsehood.
Difficulties strengthen the mind, as well as labor does the body.
It is difficulties which give birth to miracles.
What is difficulty? Only a word indicating the degree of strength requisite for accomplishing particular objects; a mere notice of the necessity for exertion; a bugbear to children and fools; only a mere stimulus to men.
There are few difficulties that hold out against real attacks; they fly, like the visible horizon, before those who advance.
Within every difficulty lies opportunity.
