Face Mask

Strictly, the expression face mask is tautological and means "mask", because masks by definition go on the face; but it is sometimes used to mean:

  • Respirator
  • Among divers, diving mask
  • Face mask (gridiron football), the metal grid face protecter on his helmet, and the penalizable foul of grasping it during play

Famous quotes containing the words mask and/or face:

    Most of our occupations are low comedy.... We must play our part duly, but as the part of a borrowed character. Of the mask and appearance we must not make a real essence, nor of what is foreign what is our very own.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    My face is muffled in my mother’s clothing. Her rhinestones injure me. See: my feet are going. Fish flee the forefinger of my aunt. The sun streams over the geraniums. What has this to do with what I feel, with what I am.
    William Gass (b. 1924)
