Idiom
 
Hi there, Can anyone provide me with an English saying similar to Nobody does anything for nothing? One student of mine asked me how to express a Spanish idiom which has a similar meaning. Thanks in advance.

Thanks a bunch for your prompt reply. You are always there. This forum would not be the same without you and many other members. A heartfelt thank you to all of you. By the way, I miss yanogator, Bruce, a lot. Hope he is fine.

Thank you Pedro and you are welcome. I miss the old days, too. Bruce, where are you? I even feel nostalgic for my old sparring partner almaz although he always used to get the better of me.
