We all wear masks, and the time comes when we cannot remove them without removing some of our own skin.” 
― André Berthiaume

“We understand how dangerous a mask can be. We all become what we pretend to be.” 
― Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

“The irony of life is that those who wear masks often tell us more truths than those with open faces.” 
― Marie Lu, The Rose Society 

“Nothing is more real than the masks we make to show each other who we are.” 
― Christopher Barzak, The Love We Share Without Knowing
