|The first excerpt represents the past or something you must release, and is drawn from Richard III by William Shakespeare:
ACT II. SCENE 1.
London. The palace
Flourish. Enter KING EDWARD sick, QUEEN ELIZABETH, DORSET,
|The second excerpt represents the present or the deciding factor of the moment, and is drawn from Aeneid by Virgil:
In secret solitude and myrtle shades
Make endless moans, and, pining with desire,
Lament too late their unextinguish'd fire.

Baring her breast, yet bleeding with the wound
Made by her son. He saw Pasiphae there,
With Phaedra's ghost, a foul incestuous pair.
There Laodamia, with Evadne, moves,
Unhappy both, but loyal in their loves:
Caeneus, a woman once, and once a man,
But ending in the sex she first began.
|The third excerpt represents the future or something you must embrace, and is drawn from The Princess by Alfred Tennyson:
A long melodious thunder to the sound
Of solemn psalms, and silver litanies,
The work of Ida, to call down from Heaven
A blessing on her labours for the world.
Sweet and low, sweet and low,
Wind of the western sea,
Low, low, breathe and blow,
Wind of the western sea!
Over the rolling waters go,
Come from the dying moon, and blow,
Blow him again to me;
