    looking for a good proverb difficulty is for a short period of time

    Her parents have to stay at her friend's apartment which is small. I say ''Although they won't be very comfortable at her friend's apartment as people say ..... ( In farsi we say one night won't be thousand nights, which means difficulty is for a short period of time.) Do you have a proverb or an idom in English? What would you say in English?

    Thank you so much for answering my question.
