Then came one of the strangest sights I have yet witnessed. The two most important persons there (bar Mataafa) were Popo and his son.

The second excerpt represents the element of Fire. It speaks of emotional influences and base passions, and is drawn from The Case of The Lamp That Went Out by Grace Isabel Colbron and Augusta Groner:

As usual, he tossed it on top of the medicine-cabinet, with a mental note that some day he must

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 Misalliance by George Bernard Shaw:

THE MAN. Youll never give another penny to anything. This is the end: for you and me.
