" And his arms were legs, amd his robes were shaggy hair,
Yet he is still Lycaon, the same grayness,
The same feirce face, the same red eyes, a picture
Of bestial savagery." (page 10)

" Part of them approved with words and added fuel to his anger, and part approved silence, and yet all were grieving at the loss of humankind." ( page 10)
