Unlike grown-ups, children have little need to deceive themselves.
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Do you not know that there comes a midnight hour
when every one has to throw off his mask?
Do you believe that life will always let itself be mocked?
Do you think you can slip away a little before midnight
in order to avoid this? Or are you not terrified by it?
I have seen men in real life who so long deceived others
that at last their true nature could not reveal itself;...
In every man there is something which to a certain degree
prevents him from becoming perfectly transparent to himself;
and this may be the case in so high a degree,
he may be so inexplicably woven into relationships of life
which extend far beyond himself that he almost cannot reveal himself.
But he who cannot reveal himself cannot love,
and he who cannot love is the most unhappy man of all.
- Soren Kierkegaard

 

We all have a social mask, right?

- Phil McGraw

Life is a mask through which the universe expresses itself.

If you doubt the virtue in self-honor,
remember what the flight attendant says,
"Put your own oxygen mask on first."

as well as physical, well-being.
In addition, your greatest value to your children,
your family, your friends, and your community
is the example you set, leading a great life that inspires
those around you to emulate your being.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

to choose one's own way.
- Viktor E. Frankl
