|The first excerpt represents the past or something you must release, and is drawn from The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx:
the hallowed co-relation of parent and child, becomes all the

family ties among the proletarians are torn asunder, and their

|The second excerpt represents the present or the deciding factor of the moment, and is drawn from Under the Andes by Rex Stout:
appeared to me to remain exactly the same, stationary, after a long

to float easily on our backs and rest.
"How far is it to the cavern?" Harry panted.
|The third excerpt represents the future or something you must embrace, and is drawn from Danny's Own Story by Don Marquis:

you, and I tell you it's up to ALL of us to stop lynch-
ings in this county--to set our faces against it.
I tell you--"
"Is that all you've got to say to us, colonel?"
The question come out of a group that had drawed
nearer together whilst the colonel was talking.
They was tired of listening to talk and arguments,
and showed it.
