Society is a masked ball, where everyone hides his real character, and reveals it by hiding." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

“A charm invests a face
Imperfectly beheld,—
The lady dare not lift her veil
For fear it be dispelled.

But peers beyond her mesh,
And wishes, and denies,—
Lest interview annul a want
That image satisfies.”
― Emily Dickinson
