The Queen is a true example of a negative character – jealous, vindictive, selfish and cold. She is very arrogant and will do anything to get what she set her mind to, even if it requires human sacrifice.
Jealous of Snow White's beauty, the wicked queen orders the murder of her innocent stepdaughter, but later discovers that Snow White is still alive and hiding in a cottage with seven friendly little miners. Disguising herself as a hag, the queen brings a poisoned apple to Snow White, who falls into a death-like sleep that can be broken only by a kiss from the prince.
The evil queen wants Snow White dead as she cannot accept the fact she is not the most beautiful woman in the kingdom. This vanity destroys her in the end.
Vanity - inflated pride in oneself or one's appearance. Usually viewed as a negative, it is one of the Seven Deadly Sins.
The framework of the deadly sins is used to help people curb their evil inclinations before they can fester, with specific focus on pride and greed, thought to be the sins that sever the soul from grace, the very essence of evil, with these two underlying all other sins.
The concept of real beauty is another theme discussed in this story. The evil queen may be beautiful on the outside, but she is wicked and ugly on the inside. In contrast, Snow White is beautiful both inside and outside.
Throughout the story, Snow Whites kindness and pure heart helps her defeat injustice. She doesn’t have a bit of wickedness in her, so it’s easy to deceive her because she’s a bit naive. Even so, the good people around her keep her safe, she gets her happy ending.
The queen is not as beautiful as Snow White because her heart is not pure. Real beauty comes from within.
Famed is thy beauty, Majesty. But hold, a lovely maid I see. Rags cannot hide her gentle grace. Alas, she is more fair than thee.”
"I'm awfully sorry. I didn't mean to frighten you. But you don't know what I've been through. And all because I was afraid. I'm so ashamed of the fuss I made.”
What do you do when things go wrong? Oh! You sing a song!
Remember, you're the one that can fill the world with sunshine.
“[laughing] It’s for Snow White. When she breaks the tender peel, to taste the apple in my hand, her breath will still, her blood congeal, then I’ll be fairest in the land!”

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
