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.


Dear Liza,

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.

Sincerely,

John
