There is nothing so bad but it can masquerade as moral.
— Walter Lippmann

You get quick money, it's beautiful, there's sunshine, but at the end of the day, you find out it's all a masquerade, baby. It's not what it seems.
Wyclef Jean masquerades quote

Such subtle Covenants shall be made,Till Peace it self is War in Masquerade.
— John Dryden

The closing years of life are like the end of a masquerade party, when the masks are dropped.
— Arthur Schopenhauer

Women over fifty already form one of the largest groups in the population structure of the western world. As long as they like themselves, they will not be an oppressed minority. In order to like themselves they must reject trivialization by others of who and what they are. A grown woman should not have to masquerade as a girl in order to remain in the land of the living.
— Germaine Greer
