The above quoted line is an example of personification. Personification is the attribution of a personal nature or human characteristics to something non-human, or the representation of an abstract quality in human form.

In the instance presented above, ‘tireless striving’ stretches its arms as if it is a human being having arms. So, human characteristics are attributed to abstract idea here.
