The first excerpt represents the element of Air. It speaks of mental influences and the process of thought, and is drawn from The Tanach:

Nehemiah 4: 8 (4:2) and they conspired all of them together to come and fight against Jerusalem, and to cause confusion therein.

Nehemiah 4: 9 (4:3) But we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them day and night, because of them.

Nehemiah 4: 10 (4:4) And Judah said: 'The strength of the bearers of burdens is decayed, and there is much rubbish; so that we are not able to build the wall.'

Nehemiah 4: 11 (4:5) And our adversaries said: 'They shall not know, neither see, till we come into the midst of them, and slay them, and cause the work to cease.'

Nehemiah 4: 12 (4:6) And it came to pass that, when the Jews that dwelt by them came, they said unto us ten times: 'Ye must return unto us from all places.'

Nehemiah 4: 13 (4:7) Therefore set I in the lowest parts of the space behind the wall, in the open places, I even set the people after their families with their swords, their spears, and their bows.

Nehemiah 4: 14 (4:8) And I looked, and rose up, and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people: 'Be not ye afraid of them; remember the Lord, who is great and awful, and fight for your brethren, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your houses.'

Nehemiah 4: 15 (4:9) And it came to pass, when our enemies heard that it was known unto us, and God had brought their counsel to nought, that we returned all of us to the wall, every one unto his work.

I therefore endeavored to instil hope and courage into his mind, in order that he might dare to engage in a vocation so anomalous and re- sponsible for a person in his situation; and I was seconded in this effort by warm-hearted friends, es- pecially by the late General Agent of the Massa- chusetts Anti-Slavery Society, Mr. JOHN A. COLLINS, whose judgment in this instance entirely coincided with my own. At first, he could give no encourage- ment; with unfeigned diffidence, he expressed his conviction that he was not adequate to the perform-

The third excerpt represents the element of Water. It speaks of pure spiritual influences and feelings of love, and is drawn from Euthydemus by Plato:

if he says that which is, says the truth of you and no lie.

Yes, Euthydemus, said Ctesippus; but in saying this, he says what is not.

Euthydemus answered: And that which is not is not?

True.

And that which is not is nowhere?

Nowhere.

And can any one do anything about that which has no existence, or do to Cleinias that which is not and is nowhere?

I think not, said Ctesippus.

Well, but do rhetoricians, when they speak in the assembly, do nothing?

Nay, he said, they do something.

The fourth excerpt represents the element of Earth. It speaks of physical influences and the impact of the unseen on the visible world, and is drawn from Maid Marian by Thomas Love Peacock:

Sir Ralph's squire no sooner heard this, and saw by the looks of the speaker that he was not likely to prove a false prophet,
