|The first excerpt represents the past or something you must release, and is drawn from Confidence by Henry James:
Captain Lovelock to receive his reward. We will go and take
a walk; we will go up the Champs Elysees. Good morning,
Monsieur le Capitaine."
Neither Blanche nor the Captain offered any opposition to this proposal,
and Bernard took leave of his hostess and joined Gordon, who had already
passed into the antechamber.
Gordon took his arm and they gained the street; they strolled
in the direction of the Champs Elysees.
"For a little exercise and a good deal of talk, it 's the pleasantest place,"

|The second excerpt represents the present or the deciding factor of the moment, and is drawn from Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare:

To soare with his light feathers, and to bound:
I cannot bound a pitch aboue dull woe,
Vnder loues heauy burthen doe I sinke

Too great oppression for a tender thing
Rom. Is loue a tender thing? it is too rough,
Too rude, too boysterous, and it pricks like thorne
Romeo and Juliet

late Act of Parliament to regulate carriers I have seen drawn by
ten and twelve horses a-piece, they were laden so heavy.
As these fens appear covered with water, so I observed, too, that
they generally at this latter part of the year appear also covered
with fogs, so that when the downs and higher grounds of the
adjacent country were gilded with the beams of the sun, the Isle of
Ely looked as if wrapped up in blankets, and nothing to be seen but
now and then the lantern or cupola of Ely Minster.
One could hardly see this from the hills and not pity the many
thousands of families that were bound to or confined in those fogs,
