It was in this way that I came to know that she had loved one who was far above her.

The second excerpt represents the element of Fire. It speaks of emotional influences and base passions, and is drawn from Astoria by Washington Irving:

On Horsemanship
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 Lucile by Owen Meredith:

All outlets, pursuing and pushing his foe To his last narrow refuge--the grave.

XV.
