    Spinoza ended his wonderful book the Ethics with "omnia praeclara tam difficilia quam rara sunt."
    All excellent things are as difficult as they are rare.

    You could use that: that would be cool.
    Or a shorter version.
    Omnia praeclara difficilia sunt - all excellent things are difficult.

    In praeclara, you should try to use a " æ " - Præclara
