Today's Stichomancy for Alec Guinness

The first excerpt represents the element of Air. It speaks of mental influences and the process of thought, and is drawn from Tristram Shandy by Laurence Sterne:

a little revived, and sent down into the kitchen, to let me know, that in about ten minutes he should be glad if I would step up stairs.--I believe, said the landlord, he is going to say his prayers,--for there was a book laid upon the chair by his bed-side, and as I shut the door, I saw his son take up a cushion.

I thought, said the curate, that you gentlemen of the army, Mr. Trim, never said your prayers at all.--I heard the poor gentleman say his prayers last night, said the landlady, very devoutly, and with my own ears, or I could not have believed it.--Are you sure of it? replied the curate.--A soldier, an' please your reverence, said I, prays as often (of his own accord) as a parson;--and when he is fighting for his king, and for his own life, and

In him the unswerving virtue of an apostle was softened by pity that sprang from inexhaustible indulgence.
