“Yes, yes," said the Beast, "my heart is good, but still I am a monster."

Among mankind," says Beauty, "there are many that deserve that name more than you, and I prefer you, just as you are, to those, who, under a human form, hide a treacherous, corrupt, and ungrateful heart.”
Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont

“There is many a monster who wears the form of a man; it is better of the two to have the heart of a man and the form of a monster. ”
Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont, Beauty and the Beast

“Pride, anger, gluttony, and idleness are sometimes conquered, but the conversion of a malicious and envious mind is a kind of miracle.”
Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont
