Today's Stichomancy for Avril Lavigne

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

that he can compel obedience,[1] is he, I ask once more, your bailiff absolute? or even though possessed of all the qualifications you have named, does he still lack something?[2]

[1] Or, "that discipline flows from him;" al. "he presents you with obedient servants."

March 399 B.C.
