Today's Stichomancy for John Carpenter

The first excerpt represents the past or something you must release, and is drawn from Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad:

His appearance was certainly that of a hairdresser's dummy; but in the great demoralization of the land he kept up his appearance. That's backbone. His starched collars and got-up shirt-fronts were achievements of character. He had been out nearly three years; and, later, I could not help asking him how he managed to sport such linen.

What a post of trust and respect!
