This chapter holds my favorite quote in the whole book yet. Queen Beauty said, "One cannot command oneself to love. How blessed we are those of us who do not have to try to do this. And we cannot command ourselves to love one form of loving over another." This is a lesson I learned through the pain of unrequited love, that only the balm of acceptance has soothed and healed.
I found this hot picture of Rachel Weisz, who I imagine as Sonya, and thought I'd share it with you guys.
