That's great,I agree with your thought.All things are difficult before they are easy.
Living without an aim is like sailing without a compass.

This is an example of an eponym. It is also rhyming slang - Mae West = Vest
Mae West [mā' wĕst'] – “a type of inflatable life jacket.” Named for buxom U.S. film star Mae West (1892-1980).
