Some suggestions for you :

The German language speaks Being, while all the others merely speak of Being.

To think Being itself explicitly requires disregarding Being to the extent that it is only grounded and interpreted in terms of beings and for beings as their ground, as in all metaphysics.

Man is not the lord of beings. Man is the shepherd of Being.

Thinking begins only when we have come to know that reason, glorified for centuries, is the stiff-necked adversary of thought.
