telescope, but saw only the three grotesquely silhouetted human
figures on the peak, all moving their arms furiously in strange
gestures as their incantation drew near its culmination. From
what black wells of Acherontic fear or feeling, from what unplumbed
gulfs of extra-cosmic consciousness or obscure, long-latent heredity,
were those half-articulate thunder-croakings drawn? Presently
they began to gather renewed force and coherence as they grew
in stark, utter, ultimate frenzy.

|The second excerpt represents the present or the deciding factor of the moment, and is drawn from Confidence by Henry James:
brutal chance, and he felt humiliated by having been favored
by so rudely-operating a divinity. Good luck and bad luck?
Bernard felt very scornful of the distinction, save that good
luck seemed to him rather the more vulgar. As the night
went on his disgust deepened, and at last the weariness it
brought with it sent him to sleep. He slept very late,
and woke up to a disagreeable consciousness. At first,
before collecting his thoughts, he could not imagine what he had
on his mind--was it that he had spoken ill of Angela Vivian?
It brought him extraordinary relief to remember that he had gone
to bed in extreme ill-humor with his exploits at roulette.
|The third excerpt represents the future or something you must embrace, and is drawn from Barlaam and Ioasaph by St. John of Damascus:
encouragement one may scarce win him to essay it, but rather by
pointing to the many who have already completed the course, and
at the last have arrived safely. So I too, "walking by this
rule," and heedful of the danger hanging over that servant who,
having received of his lord the talent, buried it in the earth,
and hid out of use that which was given him to trade withal, will
in no wise pass over in silence the edifying story that hath come
to me, the which devout men from the inner land Of the
Ethiopians, whom our tale calleth Indians, delivered unto me,
translated from trustworthy records. It readeth thus.
