Life Masks

‘Everybody wears a mask. Hadn’t you noticed? We put them on for one very good reason: we dislike our own faces…

It’s not hypocrisy so much as aspiration. we wear them to persuade ourselves as much as others…

Friendship, fairness, loyalty, dignity–what are they but lovely masks, which we wear till they begin to pinch and then let fall?’Life Mask, Emma Donoghue
