"Remember, Jove, thou wast a bull for thy Europa; love set on thy horns. O powerful love! that, in some respects, makes a beast a man, in some other, a man a beast."
--Falstaff, The Merry Wives of Windsor, Act 5, Scene V
"The wise man satisfies his beast before sitting down to dinner himself."
"One interpretation of the saying is that a virtuous man attends to the needs of his dependents before his own. Of course, the 'beast' could also be understood to represent the man's baser desires, which he must satisfy before focusing on more meaningful pursuits."
--Critical response to proverb, unidentified Hebrew scholar
"Get it? Get it? He 'satisfies' his 'beast'! Get it?! Snort"
--Critical response to proverb, unidentified college student
And the quotation that started it all...
"I'm not an animal. I can't be seduced."
--[Beezly Kiernan] (scholar, heartbreaker, and phull Philolexian) on why he frequently refuses dates with attractive women
