How we change what others think, feel, believe and do
The repetition of a word sequence used at the end of a phrase or sentence at the start of the next phrase or sentence.

I would but run away. Run away, perhaps today. Perhaps today I will. I will run away.
Will you come with me? Come with me to a better place. A place where we can be together forever, forever where we can do what we know must be done.
When something is repeated, a pattern is created. We are programmed to recognize patterns and so we pay attention.
Repetition emphasizes. It hammers home the message that 'this is important'.
Anadiplosis is a typical device that is used when building a climax, with words set up in increasing importance. Spoken, this is likely to be done with rising tone.
Anadiplosis comes from the Greek word for 'doubling' or 'repetition'.
