Today's Stichomancy for Chris Rock

The first excerpt represents the past or something you must release, and is drawn from Vailima Letters by Robert Louis Stevenson:

Is a mother selfish when she immolates all things to her child? Well, the detractors of genius do not perceive its fecund maternity, that is all. The life of a poet is so perpetual a sacrifice that he needs a gigantic organization to bear even the ordinary pleasures of life. Therefore, into what sorrows may he not fall when, like Moliere, he wishes to live the life of feeling in its most poignant crises; to me, remembering
