Ir. ard high, height.]

2. Attended with great labor, like the ascending of
acclivities; difficult; laborious; as, an arduous

Usage: Arduous, Hard, Difficult. Hard is simpler,
blunter, and more general in sense than difficult; as,
a hard duty to perform, hard work, a hard task, one

do. Difficult commonly implies more skill and sagacity
than hard, as when there is disproportion between the
means and the end. A work may be hard but not
difficult. We call a thing arduous when it requires
strenuous and persevering exertion, like that of one
who is climbing a precipice; as, an arduous task, an
arduous duty. “It is often difficult to control our
feelings; it is still harder to subdue our will; but
it is an arduous undertaking to control the unruly and
contending will of others.”
