Mean- while the howls and roars of her name would go on, making the fishermen strolling upon the sea-wall on the other side of the road turn their heads to- wards the cottages.

The second excerpt represents the element of Fire. It speaks of emotional influences and base passions, and is drawn from A Passion in the Desert by Honore de Balzac:
