A favorite has no friend!
A hypocrite despises those whom he deceives, but has no respect for himself. He would make a dupe of himself too, if he could.
All humans are hypocrites; the biggest hypocrite of all is the one who claims to detest hypocrisy.
And the wild regrets, and the bloody sweats, none knew so well as I: for he who lives more lives than one more deaths than one must die.
And why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? [Matthew 7:3]

It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime.
Keep thy smooth words and juggling homilies for those who know thee not.
Man is the only animal that learns by being hypocritical. He pretends to be polite and then, eventually, he becomes polite.
Never to talk to ones self is a form of hypocrisy.
No habit or quality is more easily acquired than hypocrisy, nor any thing sooner learned than to deny the sentiments of our hearts and the principle we act from: but the seeds of every passion are innate to us, and nobody comes into the world without them.
Often a noble face hides filthy ways.
