In this world, the only easy path is the course of least resistance. This is the path always taken by a stream of water as it seeks lower and lower ground. It will never go over an obstacle, and even when it has to go around one, water will always find the easiest way around, the way that requires as little work as possible. This, you have noticed, is what makes rivers crooked, and it makes men and women crooked too. The easy path never goes anywhere but downward, and spiritually, that is not the direction we want to go. Worthwhile destinations always take extra effort. - Gary Henry

The reward of a work is to have produced it; the reward of effort is to have grown by it. - Antonin Sertillanges

To have striven, to have made the effort, to have been true to certain ideals – this alone is worth the struggle. - William Osler

Walls don't fall without effort. - Neal Shusterman

We must adapt our efforts to the express object which we seek to attain. - Mary Willard

When your efforts run in the face of conventional wisdom and accepted mastery, persistence can look like madness. If you succeed in the end, this extreme originality reformulates into a new level of mastery, sometimes even genius; if you fail in the end, you remain a madman in the eyes of others, and maybe even yourself. When you are in the midst of the journey ... there’s really no way of knowing which one you are. - Hilary Austen

You can accomplish more with less effort if you schedule important tasks at the time of day when you perform them most effectively. - Michael Leboeuf
