We all in real life put on these masks. When you come home, when you're on your own, I'm sure you're really different than when you're with your boss.
Love often wears a mask in order to test loyalty.
I wish every day could be Halloween. We could all wear masks all the time. Then we could walk around and get to know each other before we got to see what we looked like under the masks.
Auggie in Wonder
The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. Trade in your reality for a role. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask.
A mask draws attention and an uncovered face allows people to identify you. I prefer a more subtile subterfuge. A drawn hood lets me blend into the crowd, and no one knows I was there.
Dieb - Charaktererstellung in Guild Wars3
I show the world a face lined by tragedy. Too bad you can't see behind the mask - to know whether I'm secretly laughing or not.
Mesmer - Charaktererstellung in Guild Wars5
You wear a mask for so long, you forget who you were beneath it.
Gordon Deitrich in V for Vendetta12

V in V for Vendetta11
Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.
