the card at the bottom represents what you cannot confront or are hiding from yourself. temperance, when reversed: excess. imbalance. indulgence. polarization.

the play was about a fox-girl who was stolen by some wicked wolves and carried to their cave; and just as they were about to kill her and eat her a company of fox-soldiers marched up, saved the girl, and put all the wicked wolves to death.

"how do you like it?" the king asked dorothy.

"pretty well," she answered. "it reminds me of one of mr. aesop's fables."

"don't mention aesop to me, i beg of you!" exclaimed king dox. "i hate that man's name. he wrote a good deal about foxes, but always made them out cruel and wicked, whereas we are gentle and kind."

the daughters of mne seraphim led round their sunny flocks, all but the youngest: she in paleness sought the secret air. to fade away like morning beauty from her mortal day: down by the river of adona her soft voice is heard; and thus her gentle lamentation falls like morning dew.

o life of this our spring! why fades the lotus of the water? why fade these children of the spring? born but to smile & fall.

we are young and yet desire the waies of honour, that liberty and common conversation, the poyson of pure spirits, might like women wooe us to wander from. what worthy blessing can be but our imaginations may make it ours? and heere being thus together, we are an endles mine to one another; we are one anothers wife, ever begetting new birthes of love; we are father, friends, acquaintance; we are, in one another, families, i am your heire, and you are mine.

lord meadowbank was thus induced, while doing me the great honour of proposing my health to the meeting, to say something on the subject of these novels so strongly connecting them with me as the author, that by remaining silent i must have stood convicted, either of the actual paternity, or of the still greater crime of being supposed willing to receive indirectly praise to which i had no just title. i thus found myself suddenly and unexpectedly placed in the confessional.
