QUOTES ON HYPOCRISY
As it is open season for hypocritical grandstanding here are a few quotes to chew on.
The hypocrite’s crime is that he bears false witness against himself. What makes it so plausible to assume that hypocrisy is the vice of vices is that integrity can indeed exist under the cover of all other vices except this one. Only crime and the criminal, it is true, confront us with the perplexity of radical evil; but only the hypocrite is really rotten to the core. ~Hannah Arendt, On Revolution, 1963
Moral indignation is jealousy with a halo. ~H.G. Wells
The true hypocrite is the one who ceases to perceive his deception, the one who lies with sincerity. ~André Gide
The only vice that cannot be forgiven is hypocrisy. The repentance of a hypocrite is itself hypocrisy.- William Hazlitt
One should examine oneself for a very long time before thinking of condemning others. ~Moliere
