Hypocrisy Quotes

Six of the best book quotes about hypocrisy
  1. #1

  2. #2

  4. #4
    “I hope you have not been leading a double life, pretending to be wicked and being good all the time. That would be hypocrisy.”

  6. #6
    “There is no vice so simple but assumes
    Some mark of virtue on his outward parts.”
