Hi,

How to translate this "but at what a cost,child-at what a cost"? I need your help? Thank you a lot!

Some context would be helpful.

In general, it means that you have to pay a high price for something.

eg you pay $100 for a sweater.

eg you pay 10 years of your life in prison for killing a man.

Best wishes, Clive

At what a cost => the benefits that you gain from your intended action may not be worth the troubles that you have to go through to get them

But how much of what you currently treasure or hold dear to you would you be willing to give up to get what you want, child?
