... narcissistic re- semblance, the one recognizing in the other a sort of double,
the one becoming the other, being the other (the “is” then having the value of a
process, a becoming, an identificatory metamorphosis), the beast being the
sovereign, the sovereign being the beast, the one and the other being each
engaged, in truth changed or even exchanged, in a becoming-beast of the
sovereign or in a becoming-sovereign of the beast, the passage from the one to
the other, the analogy, ...

... myself being a blemish in his eye, a blemish in the pupil of his eye; he being
the prick that bled a twitching finger to shame — a kingdom to open; he being a
cock who awoke an entire kingdom with a mourning cry; he being an Ernest-
Robert, a policeman of sorts but more a highway man, once a devil of Normandy,
a wandering ghost until Judgment Day, restless, an exflier having gone for a
burton and is still swimming in the melancholy drink of the holy book; he being a
beast who ...

For, such as the man is, he is but as God made him; and the very same is true of
the beast. Neither of them can lay claim to any intrinsic Merit, for being such as
they are; for, before they were created, it was impossible that either of them could
deserve; and at their creation, their shapes, perfections, or defects were
invariably fixed, and their bounds set which they cannot pass. And being such,
neither more nor less than God made them, there is no more demerit in a beast

that the ruling authority is in the horns or the ten kingdoms, and which in point of
fact, have ruled independently, though electing for themselves one federal head
during the time being. The beast, it may be remarked, is compounded of the
symbols of the four empires, and this must be equally understood also of the
dragon; but the western beast has an additional blasphemous mouth given to it,
and therefore synchronises with “the little horn” of Daniel's fourth beast, both as it
respects its ...

There is nothing firm to bite or grip with its massive teeth being the size of
mountains. The sounds of ripping flesh is heard inside this mouth. The sound of a
squealing pig echo from inside the mouth of Eversor, with the essence, the very
life blood, spilling into the fires of hell. Ammut entered the mouth of Eversor
where Djinn split, rip, and divide Ammut into millions of little pieces. Not even its
massive body and powerful frame could survive this beast wrath. There is a
silence over the ...

We say a man is a beast, but that is in the general sense of a being without
intellect, a mere being, the beast kind, simply a living existence or being ; and
implies no villainy or general depravity. Formerly beast [spelt best], with the
epithet reasonable, was used in the same sense as we now do the phrase a
reasonable being, as a human being. " I never heard a passion so confus'd, Se

... not give any one man a right to abuse or insult any other man on account of
these differences; for the same reason, a man can have no natural right to abuse
and torment a beast, merely because a beast has not the mental powers of a man
. For, such as the man is, he is but as God made him; and the very same is true of
the beast.... And being such, neither more nor less than God made them, there is
no more demerit in a beast being a beast, than there is merit in a man being a
man.
