Society vs Passion

In a society where cold haughtiness and indifference are regarded as signs of good breeding and gentlemanly bearing, one must conceal one’s passions.
“After the Theatre” by Anton Chekhov

How many people subdue their passions?
They just hope not to expose themselves to the public.

    Far too many people subdue their passions. The world would be a much different place if people allowed themselves to reach the potential of what they were made to be.
