"The narrow way lay right up the hill, and the name of the going up the side of the hill is called difficulty. Christian now went to the spring, and drank thereof to refresh himself, and then he began to go up the hill, saying: 'The hill though high, I covet to ascend/ the difficulty will not me offend;/ for I perceive 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.' " I looked then after christian, to see him go up the hill, where I perceived he fell from running to going, and from going to clambering upon his hands and his knees, because of the steepness of the place." [P. 10.]
