We all have a social mask, right?

All act and react upon one another.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

There is nobody in this country who got rich on their own. Nobody. You built a factory out there - good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory... Now look. You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea - God bless! Keep a hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along."
- Elizabeth Warren

Law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy
of this period of social transition

She seeks her fellows.
But Beauty is jealous,
and illy bears the presence of a rival.

Until the great mass of the people shall be filled
with the sense of responsibility for each other's welfare,
social justice can never be attained.
- Helen Keller

If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values,
we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities,

one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place.

Society is a masked ball,
where every one hides his real character,
and reveals it by hiding.

Life is a mask through which the universe expresses itself.

Do you not know that there comes a midnight hour
when every one has to throw off his mask?
Do you believe that life will always let itself be mocked?
Do you think you can slip away a little before midnight
in order to avoid this? Or are you not terrified by it?
I have seen men in real life who so long deceived others
that at last their true nature could not reveal itself;...
In every man there is something which to a certain degree
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.
- Soren Kierkegaard

God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.
- William Shakespeare

If you doubt the virtue in self-honor,
remember what the flight attendant says,
"Put your own oxygen mask on first."

if you have not taken care of your own needs first -
this includes your own emotional,
as well as physical, well-being.
In addition, your greatest value to your children,
your family, your friends, and your community
is the example you set, leading a great life that inspires
those around you to emulate your being.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Dignity is a mask we wear to hide our ignorance.
- Elbert Hubbard

The opposite of courage in our society

People who work together will win,
whether it be against complex football defenses,
or the problems of modern society.

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift
and the rational mind is a faithful servant.
We have created a society that honors the servant

imperfect instruments, working for their fulfillment.

we must not inflict unwanted children on society.

We won't have a society if we destroy the environment.

I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers
of the society but the people themselves;
and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise
their control with a wholesome discretion,
the remedy is not to take it from them but to inform their discretion.

The heart is always right -
if there's a question of choosing between the mind and the heart -
because mind is a creation of the society.
It has been educated.
You have been given it by the society, not by existence.
The heart is unpolluted.
- Osho

- Billie Jean King (tennis player)

society must set the artist free
to follow his vision wherever it takes him.

My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role,
is to try and express what we all feel.
Not to tell people how to feel.
Not as a preacher, not as a leader,
but as a reflection of us all.
- John Lennon

Leaders are made rather than born.
