“The battle of life is, in most cases, fought uphill; and to win it without a struggle is perhaps to win it without honor. If there were no difficulties there would be no success; if there were nothing to struggle for, there would be nothing to be achieved.”
Samuel Smiles, a Scottish author & reformer (1812-1904)
Quote is from his most famous book, Self-Help
