  Arduous \Ar"du*ous\ (?; 135), a. [L. arduus steep, high; akin to
     Ir. ard high, height.]
     1. Steep and lofty, in a literal sense; hard to climb.
        [1913 Webster]
              Those arduous paths they trod.        --Pope.
        [1913 Webster]
     2. Attended with great labor, like the ascending of
        acclivities; difficult; laborious; as, an arduous
        employment, task, or enterprise.
        [1913 Webster]
     Syn: Difficult; trying; laborious; painful; exhausting.
     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
            which requires much bodily effort and perseverance to
            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."
            [1913 Webster]
