Hypocrisy Quotes

Democracy is hypocrisy without limitation.

Iskander Mirza

A conservative government is an organized hypocrisy

Benjamin Disraeli

Every man alone is sincere. At the entrance of a second person, hypocrisy begins.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hypocrisy is a fashionable vice, and all fashionable vices pass for virtue

Moliere

I like business because it is competitive, because it rewards deeds rather than words. I like business because it compels earnestness and does not permit me to neglect today's task while thinking about tomorrow. I like business because it undertakes to please, not reform; because it is honestly selfish, thereby avoiding hypocrisy and sentimentality. I like business because it promptly penalizes mistakes, shiftlessness and inefficiency, while rewarding well those who give it the best they have in them. Lastly, I like business because each day is a fresh adventure.

R. H. Cabell

Our laws make law impossible; our liberties destroy all freedom; our property is organized robbery; our morality an impudent hypocrisy; our wisdom is administered by inexperienced or mal-experienced dupes; our power wielded by cowards and weaklings; and our honour false in all its points. I am an enemy of the existing order for good reasons

George Bernard Shaw

There is a certain satisfaction in coming down to the lowest ground of politics, for we get rid of can't and hypocrisy

Woe unto thee if after all thy profession thou shouldst be found under the power of ignorance, lost in formality, drowned in earthly-mindedness, envenomed with malice, exalted in an opinion of thine own righteousness, leavened with hypocrisy and carnal ends in God's service.

Joseph Alleine
