«Жизнь — маскарад. Надо ли всегда носить одну и ту же маску? Это зависит от маски — и от вас. Если маска вам не идет, если она вам мешает, если вам кажется, что она вынуждает вас играть роль, для которой вы не созданы, попытайтесь заменить ее другой. Их множество. Вот важная маска многообещающего политика; вот маска художника, к которой лучше всего подойдет яркая ковбойка с расстегнутым воротом; а вот маска будущего медика с проницательным взглядом из-под очков. Еще есть время выбирать. Но будьте осторожны! Маска сама станет править бал. Другие маски будут принимать вас за того, кем вы кажетесь. Отправляясь на бал жизни, выберите себе подходящую маску».
(Андре Моруа "Открытое письмо молодому человеку о науке жить")

Мы все в своей жизни пользуемся масками.
Мы все - актеры в этом театре жизни. И у каждого есть свои маски. Сотни разных лиц и обличий. Мы, не задумаваясь, меняем свои маски как перчатки... и это стало привычкой для нас.

В средневековье ношение маски во время карнавала предполагало временный отказ от собственного лица, индивидуальности и норм морали. В современном мире, полном стрессов, конфликтов мы часто вынуждены соответствовать ожиданиям других и многие люди проживают свою жизнь в невидимой символической маске.

Members of Japanese idol group Kamen Joshi (Masked Girls)  pose for a photo after a rehearsal for a concert at their theatre in Tokyo's Akihabara district, Japan March 17, 2016. For countless girl and pop-idol bands in Japan, standing out from the crowd can be daunting, but one group - "Kamen Joshi" - seems to have found the answer by hiding behind masks. The Tokyo-based all female band has 18 members, split into three groups that perform across Japan and elsewhere in Asia. REUTERS/Toru Hanai SEARCH "KAMEN JOSHI" FOR THIS STORY.

XINYE, CHINA - FEBRUARY 04:  A trained macaque monkey stands as its trainer demonstrates how the monkey can put on a mask during a rehearsal  on February 4, 2016 in Baowan village, Xinye county, Henan province, China. The area boasts a centuries-long and lucrative history of raising and training monkeys for performance. In Xinye, villagers are seeing an increase in business with the lunar calendar's "Year of the Monkey". Farmers say most of the monkeys are bred and raised for domestic zoos, circuses, and performing groups, but add that some are also sold for medical research in China and the United States. Despite the popularity of the tradition, critics contend the training methods and conditions constitute animal cruelty.  (Photo by Kevin Frayer/Getty Images)

BEIJING, CHINA - DECEMBER 09:  A  Chinese woman wears a mask and filter as she walks to work during heavy pollution on December 9, 2015 in Beijing, China. The Beijing government issued a "red alert" Sunday for the first time since new standards were introduced earlier this year as the city and many parts of northern China were shrouded in heavy pollution. Levels of PM 2.5, considered the most hazardous, crossed 400 units in Beijing, lower then last week, but still nearly 20 times the acceptable standard set by the World Health Organization. The governments of more than 190 countries are meeting in Paris to set targets on reducing carbon emissions in an attempt to forge a new global agreement on climate change.
