ἀλλὰ δή: introduces objections raised by others, like the Lat. at. Cf. Apol. 37 c ἀλλὰ δὴ φυγῆς τιμήσομαι; Crito 54 a ἀλλὰ δὴ τῶν παίδων ἕνεκα βούλει ζῆν;

ἀδύνατον ὑμῖν: sc. αἱρεῖσθαι βελτίονα ἡμῶν, from which then naturally ὥστε . . . ἑλέσθαι would result. In other cases ὥστε at times immediately follows ἔστι, δυνατός, ἱκανός. Cf. Lys. xx. 24 ὑμῖν δ᾽ οὐκ ἦν, ὥστ̓ εἰδέναι, Plato Phaedr. 269 d τὸ δύνασθαι ὥστε ἀγωνιστὴν τέλεον γενέσθαι, Polit. 295 a ἱκανὸς ὥστε διὰ βίου προστάττειν.

τό γ᾽ ἐμόν: for my part, so far as I am concerned. Frequent in Plato. Cf. Soph. 237 b τὸ μὲν ἐμὸν ὅπῃ βούλει τίθεσο.
