Midnight Hour [Soren Kierkegaard]

Do you know that there comes a midnight hour when everyone has thrown off his mask? Do you believe that life will always let itself be mocked? Do you think you can slip away a little before midnight to avoid this? Or are you not terrified of it? I have seen men in real life who so long deceived others that at last their true nature could not reveal itself; I have seen men who played hide and seek so long that at last in madness they digustingly obtruded upon others their secret thoughts which hitherto they had proudly concealed.
