from Emma Bull's "Silver or Gold":

: "You are a witch," said the King of Stones, gently mocking.  "You
: read symbols and make them, and craft them into nets to catch truth
: in.  This is the meat of your training, to read the true nature of 
: a thing.  Here are symbols -- choose between.  Pick the truer.  
: Pick the better."

: He pressed forward first one hand, then the other.  "Silver, or 
: gold?  Left or right?  Night or day, moon" -- she heard him mock 
: her again -- "or sun, water or fire, waning or waxing, female or
: male.  Have I forgotten any?"
