“One should not look at anything. Neither at things, nor at people should one look. Only in mirrors is it well to look, for mirrors do but show us masks.”
― Oscar Wilde, Salome
We all wear masks, and the time comes when we cannot remove them without removing some of our own skin. André Berthiaume, Contretemps

The Envious Lobster, Poem
“Yes!” cried the lobster, “that I’ll do,
And thrice as much, if needs must be
To be as gaily clad as she!”
Then, in she made a fatal dive
And never more was seen alive.
Now, those who learn the lobster’s fate,
Will see how envy could create
A vain desire within her breast,
And pride of dress could do the rest,
That brought her to an early death:
’T was love of show that cost her breath.
