Hello one and all and a Happy New Year to you all!
Thought I'd kick 2007 off with a couple of questions referring to Hollywood scandals, paparazzi, etc.
Can we use both "price" and "cost" in these sentences or just one of these?:
"Stardom comes at the _____________ of one’s personal life."
"Fame and fortune comes at the _____________ of their privacy."
Both seem to sound right to me, but I have learned in the past that you can never be too sure.
Oh - and here's a little tag connecting to the same general theme. Should we say "into" or "in to" in this context:
"They know what they’re getting _______________ before they become superstars."
Thanks. I hope you're all doing well and are settling nicely into the new year.
Hi Nordic Bill
Happy New Year to you too!
I`d use "price", although I am not sure. I`d like to see some experts` advice.
cost - the value of inputs that have been used to produce smth.[Wiki dictionary]
price - the assigned numerical monetary value of a good, service or asset [ same source as above]
"They know what they are getting into...." as Harry has already stated.
I agree- Id use 'price' or 'at a cost to'.
