"This hill, though high, I covet to ascend;
The difficulty will not me offend.
For I preceive 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 the end is woe."
- John Bunyan, The Pilgrem's Progress
