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

prevents him from becoming perfectly transparent to himself;
and this may be the case in so high a degree,
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.

need for the approval of others, be careful.
If you find yourself unwilling to
take actions that others disapprove of,

and in severe cases, a condition termed co-dependency.

Heroes act in spite of their fear,
while the rest of us act because of our fear.
