Today's Stichomancy for Sammy Davis Jr.

The first excerpt represents the element of Air. It speaks of mental influences and the process of thought, and is drawn from The Ebb-Tide by Stevenson & Osbourne:

Huish and the captain sat up in their places and regarded him with a scare.

'Worth what?' said Davis.

'A hundred and twelve shillings,' replied Attwater.

The captain breathed hard for a moment. He reached out far and wide to find any coherency in these remarks; then, with a great effort, changed the subject.

'I allow we are about the first white men upon this island, sir,' said he.

Attwater followed him at once, and with entire gravity, to the new ground. 'Myself and Dr Symonds excepted, I should say

The second excerpt represents the element of Fire. It speaks of emotional influences and base passions, and is drawn from Shakespeare's Sonnets by William Shakespeare:


Beshrew that heart that makes my heart to groan For that deep wound it gives my friend and me! Is't not enough to torture me alone, But slave to slavery my sweet'st friend must be?

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 A Sentimental Journey by Laurence Sterne:

the tender strokes of nature which the poet had wrought up in that pathetic speech of Perseus, O CUPID, PRINCE OF GODS AND MEN! &c. Every man almost spoke pure iambics the next day, and talked of nothing but Perseus his pathetic address, - "O CUPID! PRINCE OF GODS AND MEN!" - in every street of Abdera, in every house, "O Cupid! Cupid!" - in every mouth, like the natural notes of some sweet melody which drop from it, whether it will or no, - nothing but "Cupid! Cupid! prince of gods and men!" - The fire caught - and the whole city, like the heart of one man, open'd itself to Love.

No pharmacopolist could sell one grain of hellebore, - not a single armourer had a heart to forge one instrument of death; - Friendship
