when i read something about plato, i found this sentence--I to die, and you to live. i think it's not a integrated sentence. who can give me an explanation? you can see the whole sentence below:

The hour of departure has arrived, and we go our ways - I to die, and you to live. Which is better, God only knows.

Hi,

The hour of departure has arrived, and we go our ways - I to die, and you to live. Which is better, God only knows.

The dash makes the words following it part of the sentence. The long form of the words would be I go to die, and you go to live, but the repetition of the word 'go' is omitted.

It's a very stylish and profound passage. You could argue, of course, that we all go to die.

Best wishes, Clive

That may be, but Clive and his partner are going to dance all the way.
