Today's Stichomancy for Christian Bale

The first excerpt represents the element of Air. It speaks of mental influences and the process of thought, and is drawn from Albert Savarus by Honore de Balzac:

So Rosalie and her mother, who soon adopted the Paris style and fashions, easily obtained introductions to the best society. The golden key--eighteen hundred thousand francs-- embroidered on Mademoiselle de Watteville's stomacher, did more for the Comtesse de Soulas than her pretensions /a la/ de Rupt, her inappropriate pride,

The Tin Woodman of Oz
The fourth excerpt represents the element of Earth. It speaks of physical influences and the impact of the unseen on the visible world, and is drawn from Vailima Letters by Robert Louis Stevenson:

Dinner came at last, we had the tinned soup which is usually the PIECE DE RESISTANCE in the halls of Haggard, and we pitched into it. Followed an excellent salad of tomatoes and cray-fish, a good Indian curry, a tender joint of beef, a dish of pigeons, a pudding, cheese and coffee.
