|The first excerpt represents the past or something you must release, and is drawn from The Damnation of Theron Ware by Harold Frederic:
turning her head, she bent down upon his face a gaze of
arch mock-seriousness--"pray, when did I describe myself
in these terms? When did I say that I should never know
what love meant?"
For answer Theron laid his head down upon his arm,
and closed his eyes, and held his face against the draperies
encircling her. "I cannot think!" he groaned.
The thing that came uppermost in his mind, as it swayed
and rocked in the tempest of emotion, was the strange
reminiscence of early childhood in it all. It was
like being a little boy again, nestling in an innocent,

|The second excerpt represents the present or the deciding factor of the moment, and is drawn from Maid Marian by Thomas Love Peacock:
both by dignity of birth and by virtue of his standing army:
to say nothing of the free choice of his people, which he
has indeed, but I pass it by as an illegitimate basis of power.
He holds his dominion over the forest, and its horned multitude
of citizen-deer, and its swinish multitude or peasantry
of wild boars, by right of conquest and force of arms.
He levies contributions among them by the free consent of
his archers, their virtual representatives. If they should find
a voice to complain that we are 'tyrants and usurpers to kill
and cook them up in their assigned and native dwelling-place,'
we should most convincingly admonish them, with point of arrow,
|The third excerpt represents the future or something you must embrace, and is drawn from Faraday as a Discoverer by John Tyndall:
dielectric' takes more than half the original charge. A portion of
the charge was absorbed by the dielectric itself. The electricity
took time to penetrate the dielectric. Immediately after the
discharge of the apparatus, no trace of electricity was found upon
its knob. But after a time electricity was found there, the charge
having gradually returned from the dielectric in which it had been
lodged. Different insulators possess this power of permitting the
charge to enter them in different degrees. Faraday figured their
particles as polarized, and he concluded that the force of induction
is propagated from particle to particle of the dielectric from the
inner sphere to the outer one. This power of propagation possessed
