“That’s what real love amounts to,
letting a person be what he really is.
Most people love you for who you
pretend to be. To keep their love,
you keep pretending, performing.
You get to love your pretense. It’s
true, we’re locked in an image, an
act and the sad thing is, people get
so used to their image, they grow
attached to their masks. They love
their chains. They forget all about
who they really are. And if you try
to remind them, they hate you for it,
they feel like you’re trying to steal
their most precious possession.”
– Jim Morrison
