And besides these aspects there is the heart of rock and the heart of wax.

  • The heart of rock must be broken; it must be cut; nothing reaches it. Cold, heat, fire, sun, or water has little effect upon the heart of rock.
  • But when the heart is of wax, it melts as soon as the sun falls upon it, and when heated one can mold it any way one likes.
  • Then there is the heart of paper that flies like a kite in the wind; to the north, to the south, to the east, to the west. One can control it as long as the string is strong enough to hold it; but when there is no wind it drops down.
