    It’s very hard to say exactly…to me it seemed the whole book was about inner/true beauty. Just because Erik was ugly doesn’t mean he was any different from a normal man. He wanted love just like anyone of us and yet he was denied it. They all thought he was such a terrible and evil man because he took Christine and looked like a monster. But he loved her enough to let her go in the end…he truly and honestly loved her beyond all belief. That is beauty in itself, is it not? Christine felt sorry for him because he was so un-loved and she let him kiss her, giving him just a moment of love and that truly changed and awed Erik. I think this shows Erik’s beautiful and newly softened side, when he is telling Daroga about the kiss:”Yes Daroga… I felt her tears on my forehead… on mine, mine!… They were soft… they were sweet!… They trickled down under my mask… they mingled with my tears in my eyes… they floated between my lips… Listen, daroga, listen to what I did… I tore off my mask so as to not lose one of her tears… and she did not run away!… And she did not die!…She remained alive, weeping over me, with me. We cried together! I have tasted all the happiness the world can offer!”I know thats not exactly what you are looking for but perhaps you could make it work and also there is the Epilouge part of the book. there is something that goes like this:”Poor unhappy Erik! Shall we pity him? Shall we curse him? He asked only to be “some one”, like everyone else. But he was too ugly! And he had to hide his genius or use it to play tricks with, when, with an ordinary face, he would have been one of the most distingueshed of mankind! He had a heart that could have held the empire of the world; and, in the end, he had to contempt himself with a cellar. Ah, yes, we must pity the Opera Ghost. I have prayed over his mortal remains, tht God might show him mercy nonwithstanding his crimes. Yes, I am sure, quite sure that i prayed beside his body, the other day, when they took it from the spot where they were burying the phonoraphic records. It was his skeleton. I did not recongnize it by the ugliness of its head, for all men are ugly when they have been dead as long as that, but by the plain gold ring which he wore and which Christine Daae had certainly slipped on his finger, when she came to burry him in acordance with her promise.. And now, what do they mean to do with that seleton? Surely they will not bury it in a common grave!…I say that the place of the Skeleton of the Opera Ghost isin the archives of the Nation Acadamy Of Music. It is no ordinary skeleton.” Pg. 348-349 (in my book)”He had a heart that could have held the empire of the world; and, in the end, he had to content himself with a cellar”-Gaston LerouxI’m almost positive Christine says some lovely things about Erik but I don’t have them right at hand. i’ll look though, and i will let you know if I find some.

    Oh goodness, the most amazing book in the world, GOOD, no GREAT choice, Okay, I had to do a project similar to this a few years ago, My favorite quote in the whole book that would explain this well is the quote on page 251 until 255, these pages are filled with Eriks kindess and love and inner beauty…This is by far my favorite chapter of the whole book. Throughout these pages, you can pick and choose many quotes that help your subject matter along. Like here from page 253-254 “…A wedding ring, you know…I slipped it into her little hand, “There!…take it!…take it for you…and him!…It shall be my wedding-present…a present from your poor, unhappy Erik…I know you love the boy…don’t cry anymore!….She asked me, in a very soft voice, what I meant…Then I made her understand that, where she was concerned, I was only a poor dog, ready to die for her…but that she could marry the young man when she pleased, because she had cried with me and mingled her tears with mine!….”That is the most lovely extraoridnary display of inner beauty that I have ever read in a book….This quote truly displays Eriks true nature, and how beautiful he is on the inside, though he may be terrible to look at on the outside, here he proves that he is not the emotional monster Paris makes him out to be, but a sweet, gentle, loving man, who cares for his love for than himself, and is willing to let her go for the man that she loves…That is a true display of true inner beauty….I hope this helps….Dont take this book lightly…it is the most beautiful work of literature i have ever read….One can learn so much from it.Sincerly, ~*~Acey~*~
