All things are difficult before they are easy
Meaning: The implication is that we should be patient with learning, and with learners. It takes time to learn to do things. What seems easy to us now may have been difficult at first.Note: difficult (adj.) = needing much effort to do or understand | easy (adj.) = done without much effort; not difficult
Origin: Quotation from British clergyman and writer Thomas Fuller (1608-1661).
