Virtue Coy and Hard to Win
By Simonides (c. 556–468 B.C.)
 
From a careful study of Simonides by John Sterling (Westminster Review, 1838)

AND ’tis said
That Virtue, dwelling high on pathless rocks,
A holy goddess, loves the holy place;
And never there is seen by eyes of those
Whom painful labor has not tried within,        5
And borne them up to manhood’s citadel.
