Concealment does not veil HimHis pre-existence preceded time,His being preceded not-being,His eternity preceded limit.
The Roman Catholic Church is headed by a mediocre Bavarian bureaucrat once tasked with the Concealment of the foulest iniquity, whose ineptitude in that job now shows him to us as a man personally and professionally responsible for enabling a filthy wave of crime. Ratzinger himself may be banal, but his whole career has the stench of evil a clinging and systematic evil that is beyond the power of exorcism to dispel. What is needed is not medieval incantation but the application of justice and speedily at that.christopher hitchens

My Christian brethren, if the crowd of difficulties which stand between your souls and God succeed in keeping you away, all is lost. Right into the Presence you must force your way, with no Concealment, baring the soul with all its ailments before Him, asking, not the arrest of the consequences of sin, but the cleansing of the conscience " from dead works to serve the living God," so that if you must suffer, you will suffer as a forgiven man.frederick william robertson
The silky hush of intimate things, fragrant with my fragrance, steal softly down, so loth to rob me of my last dear Concealment.p. l. travers
As men, whose intentions require no Concealment, generally employ the words which most directly and aptly express the ideas they intend to convey, the enlightened patriots who framed our constitution, and the people who adopted it, must be understood to have employed words in their natural sense, and to have intended what they have said.john marshall
We burn a hot fire here; it melts down all Concealment.Arthur Miller
The member of a culture … purposely avoids the relationship of intimacy; he wants the object somehow depicted and fictionalized. … He is embarrassed when this is taken out of its context of proper sentiments and presented bare, for he feels that this is a reintrusion of that world which his whole conscious effort has sought to banish. Forms and conventions are the ladder of ascent. And hence the speechlessness of the man of culture when he beholds the barbarian tearing aside some veil which is half adornment, half Concealment.richard weaver
If we can recover the naturalistic ambitions of Marx , Nietzsche , and Freud , ... philosophy becomes relevant because the world riven as it is with hypocrisy and Concealment desperately needs a hermeneutics of suspicion to unmask it. And by taking these three seminal figures of the Continental traditions as philosophical naturalists we show their work to be continuous with the naturalistic turn that has swept Anglophone philosophy over the past several decades. ... The antipathy to naturalism often thought to be constitutive of “the Continental tradition” is simply an artifact of cutting the joints of that tradition in certain places.
Variant: Familiarity breeds contempt, but Concealment excites interest.
