Concealment Quotations

If you want to be fully convinced of the abominations of slavery, go on a southern plantation, and call yourself a negro trader. Then there will be no concealment; and you will see and hear things that will seem to you impossible among human beings with immortal souls.
Harriet Ann Jacobs

A fault is fostered by concealment.
Virgil

I believe that mothers should tell the truth, even - no, especially - when the truth is difficult. It's always easier, and in the short term can even feel right, to pretend everything is okay, and to encourage your children to do the same. But concealment leads to shame, and of all hurts shame is the most painful.
Ayelet Waldman

Distinguished ancestors shed a powerful light on their descendants, and forbid the concealment either of their merits or of their demerits.
Sallust

Seldom ever was any knowledge given to keep, but to impart; the grace of this rich jewel is lost in concealment.
