Hypocrisy Quotes


Being a hypocrite offers no glory in life. Just ask any politician and he or she can tell you that. Hypocrisy, of course, is saying one thing and doing another. It may not be a boldfaced intentional lie, but the result is virtually the same. Hypocrisy quotes shed light on the basic tenets of being a hypocrite and in being one, how we are not only not being true to others, but we’re not being true to ourselves. Saying and doing different things may seem like a lark or at least a path of least resistance at times, but hypocrisy quotes show us that this is the wrong path to take, one that leads to a slippery slope where the line between right and wrong and between what we say and what we do becomes very blurred.

Hypocrisy   

Hannah Arendt

"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.

Thomas Paine
