Today's Stichomancy for Mick Jagger

The first excerpt represents the past or something you must release, and is drawn from Meno by Plato:

but only recollection; and thus you imagine that you will involve me in a contradiction.

MENO: Indeed, Socrates, I protest that I had no such intention. I only asked the question from habit; but if you can prove to me that what you say is true, I wish that you would.

SOCRATES: It will be no easy matter, but I will try to please you to the utmost of my power. Suppose that you call one of your numerous attendants, that I may demonstrate on him.

MENO: Certainly. Come hither, boy.

SOCRATES: He is Greek, and speaks Greek, does he not?

MENO: Yes, indeed; he was born in the house.

The second excerpt represents the present or the deciding factor of the moment, and is drawn from The Waste Land by T. S. Eliot:

Facta dei fecisse deo) pro lumine adempto Scire futura dedit poenamque levavit honore.

221. This may not appear as exact as Sappho's lines, but I had in mind the 'longshore' or 'dory' fisherman, who returns at nightfall.

253. _V._ Goldsmith, the song in _The Vicar ofWakefield_.

257. _V. The Tempest_, as above.

264. The interior of St. Magnus Martyr is to my mind one of the finest among Wren's interiors. See _The Pro-posed Demolition of Nineteen City Churches_ (P. S. King & Son, Ltd.).

266. The Song of the (three) Thames-daughters begins here. From line 202 to 306 inclusive they speak in turn.


The Waste Land
The third excerpt represents the future or something you must embrace, and is drawn from Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll:

`So do I,' the White Queen whispered: `we'll often say it over together, dear. And I'll tell you a secret--I can read words of one letter! Isn't THAT grand! However, don't be discouraged. You'll come to it in time.'

Here the Red Queen began again. `Can you answer useful questions?' she said. `How is bread made?'

`I know THAT!' Alice cried eagerly. `You take some flour--'

`Where do you pick the flower?' the White Queen asked. `In a garden, or in the hedges?'

`Well, it isn't PICKED at all,' Alice explained: `it's GROUND --'
