bitter roots, sweet fruits

Hello there!

So there is this sentence that people claim is from Aristotle, "the roots of education are bitter, but the fuit is sweet". I really liked it's concept of claiming that the begining of something may be hard, yet it gets better in the future. So, if you'd be so kind, I'd like to put this concept in a phrase (or sentence) in latin.

"Bitter roots, sweet fruits". It shows a general concept of it. I would like you kind fellas to translate that for me.

If you've got a better expression that conotes the same thing I'm going for, feel free to point it out!

Thank you very much, and sorry for any grammar mistakes (english is not my first language).
