Today's Stichomancy for Rosie O'Donnell

The first excerpt represents the past or something you must release, and is drawn from Reason Discourse by Rene Descartes:

highest excellences, are open likewise to the greatest aberrations; and those who travel very slowly may yet make far greater progress, provided they keep always to the straight road, than those who, while they run, forsake it.
