    To live well is to eat well

    I just saw the restaurant with the name- To live well is to eat well.
    What is the subject of the sentence? I do know the basics of infinitives but can not use it effectively in my own writing or speech? Thanks in advance.

    Re: To live well is to eat well

    'To live well', 'is', and 'to eat well' are the subject, the main verb, and the subject complement respectively.
