Hard work

“Now since in other sciences nothing succeeds well without hard work, and the disciplines are mastered only after much effort by one who has been attracted either by a bit of glory or to profit an estate, what then would we not bear or do, how would we not burn the midnight oil which we had saved so that we might pursue those things which are most holy, most honorable and blessed beyond all measure?”. (Johannes Oecolampadius, An Exposition of Genesis, translated by Mickey Mattox, p. 41). Let me help you to understand.
