Dear Student, 
The answer to your fifth query is given below:
Through this statement, Mr Lamb means that different people have different outlooks for the same thing. Some find one thing beautiful, others find the same thing ugly. It all depends on one's perception towards a particular thing. Therefore, it is important that one adopts a positive attitude towards everything in life, just like princess Beauty who fell in love with monstrous beast in the fairy tale, 'Beauty and the Beast' but the beast, being a prince, failed to discover his reality. What matters is not the outer beauty but how beautiful you are from inside.
