Masks we wear

(the image is a photoshop artwork I had done earlier for an art challenge)

My M word for ABCwednesday is MASKS.

We wear different masks in our lives and here are few quotes about them.

Boldness is a mask for fear, however great.
~ John Dryden

Pride works frequently under a dense mask, and will often assume the garb of humility.
~ Adam Clarke

Yet, our achievements also mask many continuing failings and seem to expose more future dangers.
~ Hun Sen

“Society is a masked ball, where every one hides his real character, and reveals it by hiding.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Let us always remember this quote

Life is too short to spend hoping that the perfectly arched eyebrow or hottest new lip shade will mask an ugly heart.
~ Kevyn Aucoin

and the only mask we wear should be love for all to have a heart filled with beauty !
