The prince exults whomever he selects as his consort, but the queen, rather than elevating the subject of her choice, humiliates him as a man. By all that is right, a man is not intended to be the husband of his wife, but a woman is to be her husband’s wife.
Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself, ‘What makes me come alive?’ Because what the world – a wife, a child – needs is men who have come alive.
