The tiger will never lie down with the lamb. The lamb must learn to run with the tigers. In life, you can either be a monster, or a man; and the monster always wins. To be a man is to be the lamb, innocent and dictated. To be a monster is to be the tiger, running freely and being independent. In the Tiger’s Bride, Beauty is a lamb, but she must learn to run with the tiger.
In the tiger’s bride, beauty starts as an innocent girl who is consumed with pleasing her father and doing whatever benefits him. “[He] lost me at a game of cards”.

Wearing no clothes and walking with pride she goes to where the beast remains, waiting for her.

In order for a man to live life the way it should be lived, is to transform himself. He needs to become a monster, or a tiger. “There are certainly men more monstrous than [him]… [she] likes [him]better, even with [his] looks, than men who hide false, corrupt and ungrateful hearts behind charming manners.”.
