DISGUISE
[ Also see Concealment Deceit Dissimulation Hypocrisy Secrecy ]

We all wear some disguise, make some professions, use some artifice, to set ourselves off as being better than we are; and yet it is not denied that we have some good intentions and praiseworthy qualities at bottom.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

Men would not live long in society, were they not the mutual dupes of each other.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

We become so accustomed to disguise ourselves to others, that at last we are disguised to ourselves.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

Were we to take as much pains to be what we ought to be as we do to disguise what we really are, we might appear like ourselves without being at the trouble of any disguise at all.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

Disguise, I see, thou art a wickedness,
  Wherein the pregnant enemy does much.
    How easy is it for the proper false
      In women's waxen hearts to set their forms!
        Alas, our frailty is the cause, not we:
          For, such as we are made of, such are we.
      - William Shakespeare

'Tis great, 'tis manly, to disdain disguise;
  It shows our spirit, or it proves our strength.
      - Edward Young
