English-to-Latin: I am always late, but well worth the wait!
Dear Latin Teacher,
How would you translate this sentence (or one with similar meaning) in Latin:
"I am always late, but well worth the wait."
Thank you in advance.
Try this: Semper sum sero, at morā dignissima!
N.B. I put a macron on the (-ā) of mora
to make it clear that it is in the ablative case, working with dignissima
. The long mark is not really part of the word.
Also take note that the adjective dignissima
is feminine. If the expected person is male, use dignissimus
It literally means: Always I am late, but very worthy of the delay.
Hope this helps and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
