Keeping up appearances

To pretend to be happier, less poor, etc. than you really are, because you do not want people to know how bad your situation is:

They were very unhappily married but kept up appearances for the sake of their children.

Cambridge Dictionary

“Tolerantie is in vele opzichten absoluut noodzakelijk voor het succes van de democratie. Als mensen zo sterk vasthouden aan hun principes dat ze vinden dat ze ervoor moeten sterven of doden, zal elk meningsverschil leiden tot oorlog of een staatsgreep.”

“Tolerance is, in many ways, absolutely essential to the success of democracy. If people hold their principles so strongly that they feel they ought to die or kill for them,  every difference of opinion will lead to war or to a coup d’état.”
