A naked lunch is natural to us, we eat reality sandwiches. But allegories are so much lettuce. Don't hide the madness.
For there isanupstartcrow, beautified with our feathers, that with his tiger's heart wrapped in a player's hide, supposes he is as well able to bombast out a blank verse as the best of you; and being an absolute Iohannes fac totum, is in his own conceit the only Shake-scene in a country.Robert Greene
Advertise your business. Do not hide your light under a bushel.

A work of art must narrate something that does not appear within its outline. The objects and figures represented in it must likewise poetically tell you of something that is far away from them and also of what their shapes materially hide from us. A certain dog painted by Courbet (French 19th century painter, ed.) is like the story of a poetic and romantic hunt. (1919)giorgio de chirico
If you haven’t got it, you can’t show it. If you have got it, you can’t hide it.zora neale hurston
The tongue can conceal the truth, but the eyes never! You're asked an unexpected question, you don't even flinch, it takes just a second to get yourself under control, you know just what you have to say to hide the truth, and you speak very convincingly, and nothing in your face twitches to give you away. But the truth, alas, has been disturbed by the question, and it rises up from the depths of your soul to flicker in your eyes and all is lost.mikhail bulgakov
The questioning spirit is the rebellious spirit. A rebellion is always either a cloak to hide a prince, or the swaddling wrapper of a new rule.honoré de balzac
Our whole life can go on in observation of the laws of nature, if we gain dominion over our desires from the beginning and if we do not kill, by various means of a perverse art, the human offspring, born according to the designs of divine providence; for these women who, if order to hide their immorality, use abortive drugs which expel the child completely dead, abort at the same time their own human feelings.
Thou wear a lion’s hide! doff it for shame, And hang a calf’s-skin on those recreant limbs.william shakespeare
At eighteen our convictions are hills from which we look; at forty-five they are caves in which we hide.F. Scott Fitzgerald

"My cup of sweets is not unmingled: it is dashed with a bitterness that I cannot hide from myself, disguise it as I will."anne brontë
And where may hide what came and loved our clay? as the Poet asked finely.a. s. byatt
There is an upstart crow, beautified with our feathers, that with his tiger's heart wrapped in a player's hide supposes he is as well able to bombast out a blank verse as the best of you: and being an absolute Johannes Factotum, is in his own conceit the only Shake-scene in a country.Robert Greene
I've never tried to block out the memories of the past, even though some are painful. I don't understand people who hide from their past. Everything you live through helps to make you the person you are now.sophia loren

Rules are mostly made to be broken and are too often for the lazy to hide behind.Douglas MacArthur
Oh, that deceit should steal such gentle shapes, And with a virtuous vizard hide foul guile.william shakespeare
When all the birds are faint with the hot sun, And hide in cooling trees, a voice will run From hedge to hedge about the new-mown mead; That is the grasshopper's he takes the lead In summer luxury he has never done With his delights, for when tired out with fun, He rests at ease beneath some pleasant weed.john keats
Well might the thoughtful race of old With ivy twine the head Of him they hailed their god of wine Thank God:;! the lie is dead; For ivy climbs the crumbling hall To decorate decay; And spreads its dark deceitful pall To hide what wastes away.philip james bailey
He can run. But he can't hide.
There in close covert by some brook, Where no profaner eye may look, hide me from day's garish eye, While the bee with honied thigh, That at her flowery work doth sing, And the waters murmuring And such consort as they keep, Entice the dewy-feathered Sleep.john milton
