Translation Request

Hey I was wondering if you guys and gals could help me out with a translation. How would you translate this:

"For anything worth having one must pay the price." I'm getting it tattoed on my arm so it would be a shame if I translated it incorrectly. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

2 words

Hi all.

I'm looking for a word for bus and driver.

I've heard of laophorum. I think it's a bit artificial.

Any other ideas?

carrus omnibus ?
carpentum ?

As for driver:
I have agitator which I really don't like.
I have also heard gubernator which is not much better.

Any ideas?

Position of 'quoque'.

Does anyone have any example of quoque coming before the noun?

Also other people were there. (where Also comes in front of the noun).

The reason I am asking this, is because I have this sentence in English:

So, I have this....

Alii liberi quoque canes habent ...

Indirect statements & missing participles

Thus far in my Latin studies I've been entirely on my own. Sometimes I've had questions with no one to ask and wondered if the book just doesn't explain this or if I'm getting impatient, and the subject is discussed later in the book. :-) Anyway, I'm using Wheelock's, and I'm at chapter 25, and I have a couple questions. Having read some of the discussion on ...

ludus, -i, m.

In the usage I've seen and in my dictionary, ludus can mean both school and play. In LL, the kids in school are always in ludo, but from my dictionary, it seems I could also use the same phrase for kids "at play." Are these both commonly expressed with ludus?

Many thanks in advance,
