|The first excerpt represents the past or something you must release, and is drawn from The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare:
Forswear Bianca and her love for ever.
See, how they kiss and court! Signior Lucentio,
Here is my hand, and here I firmly vow
Never to woo her more, but do forswear her,
As one unworthy all the former favours
That I have fondly flatter'd her withal.
And here I take the like unfeigned oath,
Never to marry with her though she would entreat;
Fie on her! See how beastly she doth court him!
The Taming of the Shrew
|The second excerpt represents the present or the deciding factor of the moment, and is drawn from Faraday as a Discoverer by John Tyndall:
a battle-field. The fight between the rival optical theories of
Emission and Undulation was of this fierce character; and scarcely
less fierce for many years was the contest as to the origin and
maintenance of the power of the voltaic pile. Volta himself supposed
it to reside in the Contact of different metals. Here was exerted
his 'Electro-motive force,' which tore the combined electricities
asunder and drove them as currents in opposite directions.
To render the circulation of the current possible, it was necessary
to connect the metals by a moist conductor; for when any two metals
were connected by a third, their relation to each other was such
that a complete neutralisation of the electric motion was the result.
|The third excerpt represents the future or something you must embrace, and is drawn from She Stoops to Conquer by Oliver Goldsmith:
round the house, and never touches the house?
HASTINGS. I'm still astray.
TONY. Why, that's it, mon. I have led them astray. By jingo,
there's not a pond or a slough within five miles of the place but they
can tell the taste of.
HASTINGS. Ha! ha! ha! I understand: you took them in a round, while
they supposed themselves going forward, and so you have at last brought
them home again.
TONY. You shall hear. I first took them down Feather-bed Lane, where
we stuck fast in the mud. I then rattled them crack over the stones of
Up-and-down Hill. I then introduced them to the gibbet on Heavy-tree
