"If we tear off these masks, 
if we open ourselves up, 
if— in brief— we face our own selves, 
then we can truly begin to live and to think. 

Nakedness and defenselessness are awaiting us. 
But there, in that “open” 
solitude, transcendence is also waiting: 
the outstretched hands of other solitary beings."

~~Octavio Paz
