The second excerpt represents the element of Fire. It speaks of emotional influences and base passions, and is drawn from Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy:

Fondly do we hope--fervently


Second Inaugural Address
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 Ivanhoe by Walter Scott:

equal protection of Normans and English.''

``Prince,'' answered Cedric, ``I have ever done justice to thy bravery and thy worth---Nor am I ignorant of thy claim to the crown through thy descent from Matilda, niece to Edgar Atheling, and daughter to Malcolm of Scotland. But Matilda, though of the royal Saxon blood, was not the heir to the monarchy.''

``I will not dispute my title with thee, noble Thane,'' said Richard, calmly; ``but I will bid thee look around thee, and see where thou wilt find another
