|The first excerpt represents the past or something you must release, and is drawn from Salome by Oscar Wilde:
opales qui attristent les esprits et ont peur des tenebres. J'ai
des onyx semblables aux prunelles d'une morte. J'ai des selenites
qui changent quand la lune change et deviennent pales quand elles
voient le soleil. J'ai des saphirs grands comme des oeufs et bleus
comme des fleurs bleues. La mer erre dedans, et la lune ne vient
jamais troubler le bleu de ses flots. J'ai des chrysolithes et des
beryls, j'ai des chrysoprases et des rubis, j'ai des sardonyx et des
hyacinthes, et des calcedoines et je vous les donnerai tous, mais
tous, et j'ajouterai d'autres choses. Le roi des Indes vient
justement de m'envoyer quatre eventails faits de plumes de
perroquets, et le roi de Numidie une robe faite de plumes

that morning. She had promised to telegraph at once--but she had
not done so, and now it was late afternoon.
George got up and wandered about. He looked at himself in the
glass for a moment; then he went back to the chair and pulled up
another to put his geet upon. He puffed away at his cigarette
until he was calmer. But then suddenly he heard the rustle of a
dress behind him, and glanced about, and started up with an
Madame Dupont stood in the doorway. She did not speak. Her veil
was thrown back and George noted instantly the look of agitation
upon her countenance.
|The third excerpt represents the future or something you must embrace, and is drawn from The Tanach:
1_Samuel 3: 5 And he ran unto Eli, and said: 'Here am I; for thou didst call me.' And he said: 'I called not; lie down again.' And he went and lay down.
1_Samuel 3: 6 And the LORD called yet again Samuel. And Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said: 'Here am I; for thou didst call me.' And he answered: 'I called not, my son; lie down again.'
1_Samuel 3: 7 Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him.
1_Samuel 3: 8 And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said: 'Here am I; for thou didst call me.' And Eli perceived that the LORD was calling the child.
1_Samuel 3: 9 Therefore Eli said unto Samuel: 'Go, lie down; and it shall be, if thou be called, that thou shalt say: Speak, LORD; for Thy servant heareth.' So Samuel went and lay down in his place.
1_Samuel 3: 10 And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times: 'Samuel, Samuel.' Then Samuel said: 'Speak; for Thy servant heareth.'
1_Samuel 3: 11 And the LORD said to Samuel: 'Behold, I will do a thing in Israel, at which both the ears of every one that heareth it shall tingle.
1_Samuel 3: 12 In that day I will perform against Eli all that I have spoken concerning his house, from the beginning even unto the end.
1_Samuel 3: 13 For I have told him that I will judge his house for ever, for the iniquity, in that he knew that his sons did bring a curse upon themselves, and he rebuked them not.
1_Samuel 3: 14 And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli, that the iniquity of Eli's house shall not be expiated with sacrifice nor offering for ever.'
