« Behind the mask of indifference is bottomless misery and behind apparent callousness, despair. » ~John Bowlby
« Faith strips the mask from the world and reveals God in everything. It makes nothing impossible and renders meaningless such words as anxiety, danger, and fear, so that the believer goes through life calmly and peacefully, with profound joy – like a child, hand in hand with his mother. » ~Charles De Foucauld
« It seems like everyone these days is putting on a mask to feel beautiful, trying to fit into some pre-established norms of how we should look. This isn’t only painful, it’s ignorant. Saying like we know, better than nature does, what is beautiful and what is not is like a two-year-old lecturing an old man about patience. Nature’s been creating beauty for millennia and you are part of that creation process. Stop the madness. Stop fighting who you are. Let the mask fall. It’ll be strange at first, yes. But, over time, you’ll see beyond the temporary discomfort of stepping outside social norms and learn to see the beauty you were born with, the beauty you’ve ben taught to ignore and cover up. You’ll see beauty that will take your breath away, like a sunset. That’s how beautiful you are – like a sunset, like a forest, like a million fireflies on a calm warm night lighting up the sky. You are made by nature. Nature is wiser in the ways of beauty than cosmetics companies or magazines. Break the spell. Gain back your sanity. Go find that brilliant beauty within every single part of you. Go find the universe in your eyes. Remove that cloak that’s been pulled over your eyes and see yourself for who you really are. » ~Vironika Tugaleva
« Only when a person finally looks within and says « it’s me that needs to change » will they attract and keep great experiences…if you can’t admit that, you are scared to face the person behind the mask. » ~Daniel Chidiac
« You see behind the masks and beneath the fears to the beauty within every heart. » ~Jim Johnson
“You wear a mask for so long, you forget who you were beneath it.” ~Alan Moore
