Florilegium (flori what?)

Below are two randomly chosen items from my personal florilegium, placed together.

Your task: Read these excerpts individually, together, and in different orders, keeping your mind open to new meaning that emerges as you do so. Refresh the page for a new selection.

  1. But you've been building these walls for a long time, it's not that I didn't know but you'd flash me another smile as you'd lay another stone. And I still fall for that, I still fall for that one every time.
  2. What autonomy of choice do you have if your preferences are so obviously conditioned by your social milieu? Where is the autonomy if what you choose is what you are bound to have chosen?
