Recreations which you have so good naturally [naturedly] Described-- and having a Spirit to spend and enjoy a Fortune--I determined to marry the first rich man that would have me.

SIR PETER. A very honest confession--truly--but pray madam was there no one else you might have tried to ensnare but me.

LADY TEAZLE. O lud--I drew my net at several but you were the only one I could catch.

SIR PETER. This is plain dealing indeed--

LADY TEAZLE. But now Sir Peter if we have finish'd our daily Jangle I presume I may go to my engagement at Lady Sneerwell's?

The second excerpt represents the element of Fire. It speaks of emotional influences and base passions, and is drawn from The Forged Coupon by Leo Tolstoy:

For two Hours did I rave thus madly and should not then have left off, as I was not in the least fatigued, had not Sophia who was
