We found ourselves in New Orleans, as in the midst of the

The second excerpt represents the element of Fire. It speaks of emotional influences and base passions, and is drawn from Letters of Robert Louis Stevenson by Robert Louis Stevenson:

Gal. 1 [2.16] says that "not by works of the law' (as well as in

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 In a German Pension by Katherine Mansfield:

The Man got up, unhooked his cloak from the back of the door, and flung it round him.

"There's another coming," said he.

"What--a tooth!" exclaimed the Child, startled for the first time that morning out of her dreadful heaviness, and thrusting her finger into the baby's mouth.
