Do you not know that there comes a midnight hour
when every one has to throw off his mask?

Do you think you can slip away a little before midnight
in order to avoid this? Or are you not terrified by it?

that at last their true nature could not reveal itself;...

he may be so inexplicably woven into relationships of life
which extend far beyond himself that he almost cannot reveal himself.
But he who cannot reveal himself cannot love,
and he who cannot love is the most unhappy man of all.
