Hypocrisy quotes by Richard M. Rorty
#1. For James, disgust with American hypocrisy and self-deception was pointless unless accompanied by an effort to give America reason to be proud of itself in the future. The kind of proto-Heideggerian cultural pessimism which Adams cultivated seemed, to James, decadent and cowardly. #Quote by Richard M. Rorty
Hypocrisy quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#2. But I cant stand saying one thing when everyone knows I mean another. Whats the use in such hypocrisy? If people arrange the world that way for women, theres no good pretending it's arranged the other way ... #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Hypocrisy quotes by William Shakespeare
#3. Antioch, farewell! for wisdom sees, those men blush not in actions blacker than the night, will 'schew no course to keep them from the light. One sin, I know, another doth provoke; Murder's as near to lust as flame to smoke. Poison and treason are the hands of sin; Ay, and the targets to put off the shame. Then, lest my life be cropped to keep you clear, By flight I'll shun the danger which I fear. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Hypocrisy quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#4. He who acquired all his wealth by *being at the right place at the right time* is hypocritical by being angry for losing all his wealth because of his *being at the wrong place at the wrong time.* #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Hypocrisy quotes by Criss Jami
#5. Today's zealots are mostly those pretending to be anti-religious. #Quote by Criss Jami
Hypocrisy quotes by Thomas Bernhard
#6. The facts are always frightening, and in all of us fear of the facts is constantly at work, constantly being fuelled; but this morbid fear must not lead us to conceal the facts and so to falsify the whole of human history
which is of course part of natural history
and pass it on in falsified form just because it is customary to do so, when we know that all history is falsified and always transmitted in falsified form. #Quote by Thomas Bernhard
Hypocrisy quotes by T. J. Miller
#7. I consider myself a fairly ethical individual while I do have a lot of dichotomies within me. We're all victims of our own hypocrisy at times. #Quote by T. J. Miller
Hypocrisy quotes by Thomas Brooks
#8. Ambition is a gilded misery, a secret poison, a hidden plague, the engineer of deceit, the mother of hypocrisy, the parent of envy, the original of vices, the moth of holiness, the blinder of hearts, turning medicines into maladies, and remedies into diseases. #Quote by Thomas Brooks
Hypocrisy quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#9. When people are broken on the outside, society is taught to never be rude to them. When people are broken on the inside, society is taught to rub happiness in their faces and show them how perfect life should be. When someone has half of an arm, you are not supposed to go up to them and show them how great of an arm wrestler you are. But when someone has a broken mind or a broken soul, you're taught to go up to them and tell them to look for joy in everything. Society has a very long way to go in terms of what it means to heal this world's broken people. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Hypocrisy quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#10. Leave!' Hazel Motes cried. 'Go ahead and leave! The truth don't matter to you. Listen,' he said, pointing his finger at the rest of them, 'the truth don't matter to you. If Jesus had redeemed you, what difference would it make to you? You wouldn't do nothing about it. Your faces wouldn't move, neither this way nor that, and if it was three crosses there and Him hung on the middle one, that wouldn't mean no more to you and me than the other two. Listen here. What you need is something to take the place of Jesus, something that would speak plain. The Church Without Christ don't have a Jesus but it needs one! It needs a new jesus! It needs one that's all man, without blood to waste, and it needs one that don't look like any other man so you'll look at him. Give me such a jesus, you people. Give me such a new jesus and you'll see how far the Church Without Christ can go! #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Hypocrisy quotes by Jimmy Dore
#11. and the reason why it took them so long to impeach him... or to start an impeachment trial, is because they had to find a crime that Trump committed that they were not also complicit in. #Quote by Jimmy Dore
Hypocrisy quotes by John Mark Green
#12. The self-righteous scream judgments against others to hide the noise of skeletons dancing in their own closets. #Quote by John Mark Green
Hypocrisy quotes by Akira Kurosawa
#13. The censors were so far gone as to find the following sentence obscene: 'The factory gate waited for the student workers, thrown open in longing.' What can I say? This obscenity verdict was handed down by a censor in response to my script for my 1944 film about a girls' volunteer corps, Ichiban utsukushiku (The Most Beautiful). I could not fathom what it was he found to be obscene about this sentence. Probably none of you can either. But for the mentally disturbed censor this sentence was unquestionably obscene. He explained that the word 'gate' very vividly suggested to him the vagina! For these people suffering from sexual manias, anything and everything made them feel carnal desire. Because they were obscene themselves, everything seen through their obscene eyes naturally became obscene. Nothing more or less than a case of sexual pathology. #Quote by Akira Kurosawa
Hypocrisy quotes by Theophile Gautier
#14. I have often been charged with falsehood and hypocrisy, yet there lives not the man who would more gladly than I speak truthfully and lay bare his heart; but as I have not one idea, one feeling in common with the people who surround me, as the very first word I should speak truthfully would cause a general hue and cry, I have preferred to keep silent, or, if I do speak, to utter only stupid commonplaces which everyone has agreed to believe in. #Quote by Theophile Gautier
Hypocrisy quotes by Richard Rohr
#15. The key to entering into the Divine Exchange is never our worthiness but always God's graciousness. Any attempt to measure or increase our worthiness will always fall short, or it will force us into the position of denial and pretend, which produces the constant perception of hypocrisy in religious people.
To switch to an "economy of grace" is a switch that is very hard for humans to make. We base almost everything in human culture on achievement, performance, accomplishment, an equal exchange value, or some kind of worthiness gauge. I call it meritocracy. Unless one personally experiences a dramatic and personal breaking of the rules of merit (forgiveness or undeserved goodness), it is almost impossible to disbelieve or operate outside of its rigid logic. This cannot happen theoretically or abstractly. It cannot happen "out there" but must be known personally "in here. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Hypocrisy quotes by Victor Hugo
#16. The child watched its disappearance--he was astounded but dreamy. His stupefaction was complicated by a sense of the dark reality of existence. It seemed as if there were experience in this dawning being. Did he, perchance, already exercise judgment? Experience coming too early constructs, sometimes, in the obscure depths of a child's mind, some dangerous balance--we know not what--in which the poor little soul weighs God.

Feeling himself innocent, he yielded. There was no complaint-THE IRREPROACHABLE DOES NOT REPROACH.
(The Man Who Laughs) #Quote by Victor Hugo
Hypocrisy quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#17. A man must ride alternately on the horses of his private and his public nature. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Hypocrisy quotes by Nikolas Schreck
#18. Satanism represents opposition to hypocrisy, every human being feels rage, every human being feels anger, and we feel it is natural to express that anger in a healthy way. #Quote by Nikolas Schreck
Hypocrisy quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#19. More faults are created than cured by professional teachers. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Hypocrisy quotes by Mehek Bassi
#20. What if you get a virgin (or what you call – pure) girl, and she disrespects you, has affairs outside, insults your parents and becomes a bitch after marriage? And what if the girl isn't virgin, but she's pure-hearted, loves and cares for you, respects your parents, is true to you and remains by your side for the rest of your life? What will matter more? Her virginity, or her nature? #Quote by Mehek Bassi
Hypocrisy quotes by John Calvin
#21. Hypocrisy can plunge the mind of a man into a dark abyss, when he believes his own self-flattery instead of God's verdict. #Quote by John Calvin
Hypocrisy quotes by George E. Sargent
#22. If bad men, to serve their own private ends, pretend to be religious when they are not, it is not the fault of Christianity. More importantly, it is not the fault of Christ! The Bible tells us that men are to be judged by their fruits; and the wickedness and hypocrisy of a thousand false professors does not prove religion - nor Christ Himself - to be wicked and hypocritical and false. We don't set our faith and hope on religion or Christianity, but on Christ alone. #Quote by George E. Sargent
Hypocrisy quotes by Dennis Rodman
#23. There is so much hypocrisy in sports. #Quote by Dennis Rodman
Hypocrisy quotes by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
#24. But if a good heart, a good intention, a subjective conviction are declared to be the sources from which actions derive their worth, then there is no longer any hypocrisy or evil at all; for whatever someone does, he can always turn it into something good through reflecting on his good intentions and motives, and so the moment of his convictions renders it good. #Quote by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
Hypocrisy quotes by Esosa Kolawole
#25. Fib and the Axe of fury

The urge to leave came strong, insistent, urgent. I couldn't stand the hypocrisy that my mother
was showing. Suddenly, the woman whom I'd adored for most of my life became the bad guy:
a liar who wanted to hide the truth from her own child. #Quote by Esosa Kolawole
Hypocrisy quotes by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
#26. Do we use the Word of God only as a cue card to commandeer our external behavior? #Quote by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
Hypocrisy quotes by Thomas Paine
#27. It has been the political career of this man to begin with hypocrisy, proceed with arrogance, and finish with contempt #Quote by Thomas Paine
Hypocrisy quotes by Emanuel Lasker
#28. On the chessboard, lies and hypocrisy do not survive long. The creative combination lays bare the presumption of a lie; the merciless fact, culminating in the checkmate, contradicts the hypocrite. #Quote by Emanuel Lasker
Hypocrisy quotes by Criss Jami
#29. Our poor world aspires simply to point out where Christians have gone wrong, and that is pretty much where it goes wrong. It is as though many of us, when of the world, are actually all the more judgmental: for we are stuck on a bad Christian while the Christian is pinned to a good Christ. #Quote by Criss Jami
Hypocrisy quotes by Janet Malcolm
#30. Society mediates between the extremes of, on the one hand, intolerably strict morality and, on the other, dangerously anarchic permissiveness through an unspoken agreement whereby we are given leave to bend the rules of the strictest morality, provided we do so quietly and discreetly. Hypocrisy is the grease that keeps society functioning in an agreeable way, by allowing for human fallibility and reconciling the seemingly irreconcilable human needs for order and pleasure. When Buckley and Wambaugh said bluntly that it's all right to deceive subjects, they breached the contract whereby you never come right out and admit you have stretched the rules for your own benefit. You do it and shut up about it, and hope you don't get caught, because if you are caught no one - or no one who has any sense - will come forward and say he has done the same thing himself. #Quote by Janet Malcolm
Hypocrisy quotes by Tehmina Durrani
#31. To me, my husband was my son's murderer. He was also my daughter's molester. A parasite nibbling on the Holy Book, he was Lucifer, holding me by the throat and driving me to sin every night. He was Bhai's destroyer, Amma Sain's tormentor, Ma's humbler and the people's exploiter. He was the rapist of orphans and the fiend that fed on the weak. But over and above all this, he was known to be the man closest to Allah, the one who could reach Him and save us. #Quote by Tehmina Durrani
Hypocrisy quotes by Oliver Goldsmith
#32. Thus 'tis with all; their chief and constant care Is to seem everything but what they are. #Quote by Oliver Goldsmith
Hypocrisy quotes by Amy Carmichael
#33. If by doing some work which the undiscerning consider 'not spiritual work' I can best help others, and I inwardly rebel, thinking it is the spiritual for which I crave, when in truth it is the interesting and exciting, then I know nothing of Calvary love. #Quote by Amy Carmichael
Hypocrisy quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#34. She had an evil face, smoothed by hypocrisy; but her manners were excellent. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Hypocrisy quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#35. If Satan ever laughs, it must be at hypocrites; they are the greatest dupes he has; they serve him better than any others, and receive no wages. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Hypocrisy quotes by Judith Martin
#36. Hypocrisy is not generally a social sin, but a virtue. #Quote by Judith Martin
Hypocrisy quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#37. If we make a great show of respect and love to God, in the outward actions, while there is no sincerity in the heart, it is but hypocrisy and practical lying unto the Holy One. #Quote by Jonathan Edwards
Hypocrisy quotes by Angelica Hopes
#38. Security means the state of being free from danger or threat.

Danger means the possibility of suffering harm or injury. The possibility of something unwelcome or unpleasant happening.

There are times I have to stress as I express the correct, precise, real and honest definitions; so that the deceptive, politically motivated folks who destructively branded me as "threat to danger" would realise their double denial duplicity, dishonesty and hypocrisy.

Have you at least questioned the personal motives and faulty malicious and intentional misjudgment or at least be honestly curious to discern the motive of a cunning person who warns you against another as a danger, a threat or a risk to life or security?

Did the political harridan mean political threat to her political coalition or a danger to reveal the harridan's creative deception matched with her political ambitious power links? ~ Angelica Hopes, K.H. Trilogy #Quote by Angelica Hopes
Hypocrisy quotes by Lord Byron
#39. In England the only homage which they pay to Virtue - is hypocrisy. #Quote by Lord Byron
Hypocrisy quotes by Tehmina Durrani
#40. My mind was consumed with the idea of purdah. From behind it no call for help could be heard. An abandoned species was trapped in a forbidden world. Everything corrupt happened under the shroud, when it was off a faceless and nameless woman appeared. #Quote by Tehmina Durrani
Hypocrisy quotes by Gro Harlem Brundtland
#41. Morality becomes hypocrisy if it means accepting mothers' suffering or dying in connection with unwanted pregnancies and illegal abortions and unwanted children. #Quote by Gro Harlem Brundtland
Hypocrisy quotes by Stendhal
#42. Mathematics allows for no hypocrisy and no vagueness. #Quote by Stendhal
Hypocrisy quotes by Jonah Goldberg
#43. The logical upshot of liberalism's hatred of hypocrisy is that it is better for the liar to champion lying, the glutton to advocate gluttony, the adulterer to celebrate adultery, than for someone to preach the right thing if he himself occasionally does the wrong thing. Better to let your failings define you and be happy about it, than to let your ideals define you but then fall short of them, for that opens you up to the charge of hypocrisy. #Quote by Jonah Goldberg
Hypocrisy quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#44. Better abolish pulpits then to appoint men who have no experiential knowledge of what they teach. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Hypocrisy quotes by Luigina Sgarro
#45. I think there is a substantial difference between hypocrisy and diplomacy: hypocrisy is not saying things, diplomacy is knowing how to say things. #Quote by Luigina Sgarro
Hypocrisy quotes by Oscar Wilde
#46. For it was an unjust mirror, this mirror of his soul that he was looking at. Vanity? Curiosity? Hypocrisy? Had there been nothing more in his renunciation than that? There had been something more. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Hypocrisy quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#47. Millions of men who are disgusted by the thought or sight of a man having sex with another each sometimes brings about an orgasm through a woman's anus. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Hypocrisy quotes by F. Sionil Jose
#48. I believe in humanity - not just you or Mother, but all mankind. Do I sound like a preacher or a cheap politician making a pretty speech? This is not what I intend to do ...
I believe in life, that it is sweet and that, for all its occasional bitterness, we-man, that is-are headed toward something better - fulfillment. There is much shame, however, and so much hypocrisy around us and these inhibit our fulfillment as human beings. #Quote by F. Sionil Jose
Hypocrisy quotes by Milan Kundera
#49. I was not a hypocrite, with one real face and several false ones. I had several faces because I was young and didn't know who I was or wanted to be. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Hypocrisy quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#50. On a moonless night a man entered into his neighbour's garden and stole the largest melon he could find and brought it home.
He opened it and found it still unripe.
Then behold a marvel!
The man's conscience woke and smote him with remorse; and he repented having stolen the melon. #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Hypocrisy quotes by Stephen King
#51. Your own politicians make our Dr. Goebbels look like a child playing with picture books in a kindergarten. They speak of morality while they douse screaming children and old women in burning napalm. Your draft-resisters are called cowards and 'peaceniks.' For refusing to follow orders they are either put in jails or scourged from the country. Those who demonstrate against this country's unfortunate Asian adventure are clubbed down in the streets. The GI soldiers who kill the innocent are decorated by Presidents, welcomed home from the bayoneting of children and the burning of hospitals with parades and bunting. They are given dinners, Keys to the City, free tickets to pro football games." He toasted his glass in Todd's direction. "Only those who lose are tried as war criminals for following orders and directives. #Quote by Stephen King
Hypocrisy quotes by Robert G. Ingersoll
#52. The real bible is not the work of inspired men, nor prophets, nor apostles, nor evangelists, nor of Christs. Every man who finds a fact, adds, as it were, a word to this great book. It is not attested by prophecy, by miracles or signs. It makes no appeal to faith, to ignorance, to credulity or fear. It has no punishment for unbelief, and no reward for hypocrisy. It appeals to man in the name of demonstration. It has nothing to conceal. It has no fear of being read, of being contradicted, of being investigated and understood. It does not pretend to be holy, or sacred; it simply claims to be true. It challenges the scrutiny of all, and implores every reader to verify every line for himself. It is incapable of being blasphemed. This book appeals to all the surroundings of man. Each thing that exists testifies of its perfection. The earth, with its forests and plains, its rocks and seas; with its every wave and cloud; with its every leaf and bud and flower, confirms its every word, and the solemn stars, shining in the infinite abysses, are the eternal witnesses of its truth. #Quote by Robert G. Ingersoll
Hypocrisy quotes by Julian Barnes
#53. We listen to what people say, we read what they write - that's our evidence, that's our corroboration. But if the face contradicts the speaker's words, we interrogate the face. A shifty look in the eye, a rising blush, the uncontrollable twitch of a face muscle - and then we
know. We recognise the hypocrisy or the false claim, and the truth stands evident before us. #Quote by Julian Barnes
Hypocrisy quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#54. To be formed and shaped by the Incarnate: That is what it means to be truly human. All efforts to be more than human, to be superhuman, all efforts to grow beyond one's humanity, all heroism, all attempts at being demigods are discarded here, for all of it is untrue. The real human being is neither an object of contempt nor of apotheosis, but rather God's love. The multiplicity of God's creative wealth is not violated here by false uniformity, by coercion of human beings under an ideal, under a type, a particular image. Real human beings are allowed in freedom to be the creatures of their creator. Being formed in the image of the Incarnate means being permitted to be the human being one really is. There is no more pretense, hypocrisy, cramped coercion to be something other than what one is, something better, something more ideal. God loves real human beings. God became a real human being. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Hypocrisy quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#55. He who frowns when they say that he sucks shouldn't smile when they say that he rocks. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Hypocrisy quotes by Neal Stephenson
#56. If the Coastal Republic had believed in the existence of virtue, it could at least have aspired to hypocrisy. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Hypocrisy quotes by Ben Jonson
#57. Spread yourself upon his bosom publicly, whose heart you would eat in private. #Quote by Ben Jonson
Hypocrisy quotes by Ben Fountain
#58. But I am scared. Everybody's scared."
"You know what I mean, like scared scared. Like coward scared, like if you never went to begin with. But with everything you've done nobody's going to doubt you." Then she made a somewhat frantic speech about a website she found that listed how certain people had avoided Vietnam. Cheney, Four education deferments, then a hardship 3-A. Limbaugh,4-F thanks to a cyst on his ass. Pat Buchanan, 4-F. Newt Gingrich, grad school deferment. Karl Rove, did not serve. Bill O'Reilly, did not serve. John Ashcroft, did not serve. Bush, AWOL from the Air National Guard, with a check mark in the "do not volunteer" box as to service overseas.
"You see where I'm going with this?'
"Well, yeah."
"I'm just saying, those people want a war so bad, they can fight it themselves. Billy Lynn's done his part. #Quote by Ben Fountain
Hypocrisy quotes by Harriet Ann Jacobs
#59. Are doctors of divinity blind or are they hypocrites? #Quote by Harriet Ann Jacobs
Hypocrisy quotes by Wendy Doniger
#60. (Sarah Palin's) greatest hypocrisy is in her pretense that she is a woman. #Quote by Wendy Doniger
Hypocrisy quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#61. And thou wilt give thyself relief if thou doest every act of thy life as if it were the last, laying aside all carelessness and passionate aversion from the commands of reason, and all hypocrisy, and self-love, and discontent with the portion which has been given to thee. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Hypocrisy quotes by Quentin R. Bufogle
#62. The Catholic Church standing in "solidarity" with members of the LGBT community while condemning their behavior as "sinful" is a little like attempting to stand with two feet in one shoe. "Love the sinner, hate the sin" sounds really high-minded until you realize the only sin committed was being born different. #Quote by Quentin R. Bufogle
Hypocrisy quotes by Stewart Stafford
#63. You only really stop being an immigrant when you reject other immigrants and try to slam the door in their faces when they try to emulate you. #Quote by Stewart Stafford
Hypocrisy quotes by Mango Wodzak
#64. If factory farming for meat of cats, dogs, squirrels, swans and guinea pigs began in western Europe, you can be sure some of the bacon and sausage gorging public would be out protesting. Although other cultures regularly eat some or all of these animals, everybody draws the line somewhere. Most would balk at the idea of eating dolphin, gorilla, orangutan or human flesh, but really the differences between the species are minimal and whether we are a rabbit, horse, chimpanzee or human, we all have an innate desire to live our lives freely and avoid violation. #Quote by Mango Wodzak
Hypocrisy quotes by Antonin Scalia
#65. To invoke alien law when it agrees with one's own thinking, and ignore it otherwise, is not reasoned decisionmaking, but sophistry. #Quote by Antonin Scalia
Hypocrisy quotes by Guy Kawasaki
#66. The more popular a person thinks he is in the blogosphere, the thinner his skin and the thicker his hypocrisy. This should be exactly the opposite: the higher you go the thicker the skin and thinner the hypocrisy. #Quote by Guy Kawasaki
Hypocrisy quotes by Anton Chekhov
#67. Look at life: the insolence and idleness of the strong, the ignorance and brutishness of the weak, horrible poverty everywhere, overcrowding, degeneration, drunkenness, hypocrisy, lying
yet in all the houses and on the streets there is peace and quiet; of the fifty thousand people who live in our town there is not one who would cry out, who would vent his indignation aloud. We see the people who go to market, eat by day, sleep by night, who babble nonsense, marry, grow old, good-naturedly drag their feet to the cemetery, but we do not see or hear those who suffer, and what is terrible in life goes on somewhere behind the scenes. Everything is peaceful and quiet and only mute statistics protest. #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Hypocrisy quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#68. The Americans of the United States do not let their dogs hunt the Indians as do the Spaniards in Mexico, but at bottom it is the same pitiless feeling which here, as everywhere else, animates the European race. This world here belongs to us, they tell themselves every day: the Indian race is destined for final destruction which one cannot prevent and which it is not desirable to delay. Heaven has not made them to become civilized; it is necessary that they die. Besides I do not want to get mixed up in it. I will not do anything against them: I will limit myself to providing everything that will hasten their ruin. In time I will have their lands and will be innocent of their death.
Satisfied with his reasoning, the American goes to church where he hears the minister of the gospel repeat every day that all men are brothers, and that the Eternal Being who has made them all in like image, has given them all the duty to help one another. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Hypocrisy quotes by John Kennedy Toole
#69. But I knew the way the people in the town thought about things. They always had some time left over from their life to bother about other people and what they did. They thought they had to get together to help other people out, like the time they got together about the woman who let a colored man borrow her car and told her the best place for her was up north with all the other nigger lovers, and the time they got the veterans with overseas wives out. If you were different from anybody in town, you had to get out. That's why everybody was so much alike. The way they talked, what they did, what they liked, what they hated. If somebody got to hate something and he was the right person, everybody had to hate it too, or people began to hate the ones who didn't hate it. They used to tell us in school to think for yourself, but you couldn't do that in the town. You had to think what your father thought all his life, and that was what everybody thought. #Quote by John Kennedy Toole
Hypocrisy quotes by Gregory Bateson
#70. A little hypocrisy and a little compromise oils the wheels of social life #Quote by Gregory Bateson
Hypocrisy quotes by Basil Pennington
#71. Unfortunately, in seeing ourselves as we truly are, not all that we see is beautiful and attractive. This is undoubtedly part of the reason we flee silence. We do not want to be confronted with our hypocrisy, our phoniness. We see how false and fragile is the false self we project. We have to go through this painful experience to come to our true self. #Quote by Basil Pennington
Hypocrisy quotes by George Orwell
#72. * *Do remember that dishonesty and cowardice always have to be paid for.*Don't imagine that for years on end you can make yourself the boot-licking propagandist of the Soviet régime, or any other régime, and then suddenly return to mental decency. Once a whore, always a whore. #Quote by George Orwell
Hypocrisy quotes by Loretta Chase
#73. Hypocrisy seemed to be the fashionable equivalent of propriety, discretion indistinguishable from morality, and the #Quote by Loretta Chase
Hypocrisy quotes by Marilyn French
#74. It does seem true that a young woman may sometimes behave in a way that can be called titillating, and that men take such behavior as being directed entirely at them. [...]
I've often seen blushing young men with shining eyes behave in the same way, but no one says of them that they want to be raped. If, after taking a few steps forward, they then decide to retreat, no one accuses them of being cunt teasers. In fact, the disappointed woman probably thinks it's all her fault. #Quote by Marilyn French
Hypocrisy quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#75. Kindness is unconquerable, so long as it is without flattery or hypocrisy. For what can the most insolent man do to you, if you contrive to be kind to him, and if you have the chance gently advise and calmly show him what is right...and point this out tactfully and from a universal perspective. But you must not do this with sarcasm or reproach, but lovingly and without anger in your soul. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Hypocrisy quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#76. That passion is better than stoicism or hypocrisy; that straightforwardness, even in evil, is better than losing oneself in trying to observe traditional morality; that the free man is just as able to be good as evil, but that the unemancipated man is a disgrace to nature, and has no share in heavenly or earthly bliss #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Hypocrisy quotes by Edward Short
#77. The dominating idea of English society was not cultivate virtue but to avoid scandal. #Quote by Edward Short
Hypocrisy quotes by Osho
#78. I am not against rules, but the rules should arise out of your understanding. They should not be imposed from the outside. I am not against discipline! but discipline should not be slavery. All true discipline is self-discipline. And self-discipline is never against freedom - in fact, it is the ladder to freedom. Only disciplined people become free, but their discipline is not obedience to others: their discipline is obedience to their own inner voice. And they are ready to risk anything for it. Let your own awareness decide your lifestyle, life pattern. Don't allow anybody else to decide it. That is a sin, to allow anybody else to decide it. Why is it a sin? Because you will never be in your life. It will remain superficial, it will be hypocrisy. #Quote by Osho
Hypocrisy quotes by Alfred Kinsey
#79. The history of medicine proves that in so far as man seeks to know himself and face his whole nature, he has become free from bewildered fear, despondent shame, or arrant hypocrisy. As long as sex is dealt with in the current confusion of ignorance and sophistication, denial and indulgence, suppression and stimulation, punishment and exploitation, secrecy and display, it will be associated with a duplicity and indecency that lead neither to intellectual honesty nor human dignity. #Quote by Alfred Kinsey
Hypocrisy quotes by Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips
#80. Taqwaa (piety) is the driving force behind living faith. Without it, faith is only a meaningless jumble of memorized words and phrases, and 'righteous' deeds only shells of pretence and hypocrisy. #Quote by Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips
Hypocrisy quotes by Hannah Arendt
#81. To them, violence, power, cruelty, were the supreme capacities of men who had definitely lost their place in the universe and were much too proud to long for a power theory that would safely bring them back and reintegrate them into the world. They were satisfied with blind partisanship in anything that respectable society had banned, regardless of theory or content, and they elevated cruelty to a major virtue because it contradicted society's humanitarian and liberal hypocrisy. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Hypocrisy quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#82. Not in order to justify, but simply in order to explain my lack of consistency, I say: Look at my present life and then at my former life, and you will see that I do attempt to carry them out. It is true that I have not fulfilled one thousandth part of them [Christian precepts], and I am ashamed of this, but I have failed to fulfill them not because I did not wish to, but because I was unable to. Teach me how to escape from the net of temptations that surrounds me, help me and I will fulfill them; even without help I wish and hope to fulfill them.

Attack me, I do this myself, but attack me rather than the path I follow and which I point out to anyone who asks me where I think it lies. If I know the way home and am walking along it drunkenly, is it any less the right way because I am staggering from side to side! If it is not the right way, then show me another way; but if I stagger and lose the way, you must help me, you must keep me on the true path, just as I am ready to support you. Do not mislead me, do not be glad that I have got lost, do not shout out joyfully: "Look at him! He said he was going home, but there he is crawling into a bog!" No, do not gloat, but give me your help and support. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Hypocrisy quotes by Roger Scruton
#83. Something new seems to be at work in the contemporary world - a process that is eating away the very heart of social life, not merely by putting salesmanship in place of moral virtue, but by putting everything - virtue included - on sale. #Quote by Roger Scruton
Hypocrisy quotes by Thomas Paine
#84. Panics, in some cases, have their uses; they produce as much good as hurt. Their duration is always short; the mind soon grows through them and acquires a firmer habit than before. But their peculiar advantage is, that they are the touchstone of sincerity and hypocrisy, and bring things and men to light, which might have lain forever undiscovered. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Hypocrisy quotes by John McCain
#85. Conservatives came to office to reduce the size of government and enlarge the sphere of free and private initiative. But lately we have increased government in order to stay in office. And, soon, if we don't remember why we were elected we will have lost our office along with our principles, and leave a mountain of debt that our children's grandchildren will suffer from long after we have departed this earth. Because, my friends, hypocrisy is the most obvious of sins, and the people will punish it. #Quote by John McCain
Hypocrisy quotes by Blaise Pascal
#86. Man is nothing but insincerity, falsehood, and hypocrisy, both in regard to himself and in regard to others. He does not wish that he should be told the truth, he shuns saying it to others; and all these moods, so inconsistent with justice and reason, have their roots in his heart. #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Hypocrisy quotes by Amine The I
#87. The only difference between a saint and a pervert is Hypocrisy. #Quote by Amine The I
Hypocrisy quotes by Paul Stanley
#88. People relate to the spirit of the band, which is to live your way and succeed on your own terms. There's no hypocrisy in being successful and still railing against conformity. #Quote by Paul Stanley
Hypocrisy quotes by Kevin Roose
#89. False conversions are a wart on the face of Christian evangelism. #Quote by Kevin Roose
Hypocrisy quotes by J. Christopher Herold
#90. Just as Napoleon was the sole authority in the state, so the husband and father was to exercise authority over his family. Unfortunately the only possible result of despotism on either level is hypocrisy. #Quote by J. Christopher Herold
Hypocrisy quotes by Samuel Ngewa
#91. Elders pass harsh judgments on people who have committed the same sins that they themselves are guilty of - except that they have managed to keep it secret. This is nothing less than hypocrisy! #Quote by Samuel Ngewa
Hypocrisy quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#92. The qualities we have, make us so ridiculous as those which we affect. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Hypocrisy quotes by Alex Morritt
#93. When the clowns of British politics - arch-Brexiteer cartoon characters 'Boorish Johnson' and 'JackOff Grease-Smug' advocate ad infinitum that Britain should leave the EU in order to be free to sign her own trade deals; they seem to have overlooked the towering elephant in the room, namely the current occupant of the White House (another clown) - who appears hell-bent on destabilising world trade via crude protectionist policies. Both Tories, despite receiving the best British education money can buy, would do well to revisit their post war history books and be reminded of one of the key objectives of the European Project and in due course the European Union - specifically to promote peace and prosperity amongst previously warring neighbours by forming a unified trading bloc which in time, due to its effective size, also acted as a useful counterweight to US hegemony. Go find another circus for your buffoonery and leave the deadly serious business of politics to principled individuals with the true national interest at heart ! #Quote by Alex Morritt
Hypocrisy quotes by Irvine Welsh
#94. The best way ah knew tae strike a chord without compromising too much tae the sickening hypocrisy, perversely peddled as decency, which fills the room, is tae stick tae the clichés. #Quote by Irvine Welsh
Hypocrisy quotes by Erwin Schrodinger
#95. By the way, I never realized that to be nonbelieving, to be an atheist, was a thing to be proud of. It went without saying as it were.
... Our creed is indeed a queer creed. You others, Christians (and similar people), consider our ethics much inferior, indeed abominable. There is that little difference. We adhere to ours in practice, you don't. #Quote by Erwin Schrodinger
Hypocrisy quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#96. At the point where he, today's Ivan Ilyich, began to emerge, all the pleasures that had seemed so real melted away now before his eyes and turned into something trivial and often disgusting.
And the further he was from childhood, the nearer he got to the present day, the more trivial and dubious his pleasures appeared. It started with law school. That had retained a little something that was really good: there was fun, there was friendship, there was hope. But in the last years the good times had become more exceptional. Then, at the beginning of his service with the governor, some good times came again: memories of making love to a woman. Then it became all confused, and the good times were not so many. After that there were fewer still; the further he went the fewer there were.
Marriage. . .an accident and such a disappointment, and his wife's bad breath, and all that sensuality and hypocrisy! And the deadlines of his working life, and those money worries, going on for a year, two years, ten, twenty - always the same old story. And the longer it went on the deadlier it became.
'It's as if I had been going downhill when I thought I was going uphill. That's how it was. In society's opinion I was heading uphill, but in equal measure life was slipping away from me...And now it's all over. Nothing left but to die! #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Hypocrisy quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#97. Society always consists, in greatest part, of young and foolish persons. The old, who have seen through the hypocrisy of the courts and statesmen, die, and leave no wisdom to their sons. They believe their own newspaper, as their fathers did at their age. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Hypocrisy quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#98. That debauchery was not a good thing in a married man did not even occur to him [Tsar Nicholas I], and he would have been very surprised if anyone had condemned him for it. But, even though he was convinced that he had acted as he ought, he was left with some sort of unpleasant aftertaste, and, to stifle that feeling, he began thinking about something that always soothed him: about what a great man he was. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Hypocrisy quotes by Criss Jami
#99. Just as some people may conceal their own sinfulness thus seeming better than the norm, others expose their own sinfulness thus seeming worse than the norm. #Quote by Criss Jami
Hypocrisy quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#100. Nothing that we despise in other men is inherently absent from ourselves. We must learn to regard people less in the light of what they do or don't do, and more in light of what they suffer. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Hypocrisy quotes by John Le Carre
#101. Ashe was typical of that strata of mankind which conducts its human relationships according to a principle of challenge and response. Where there was softness, he would advance; where he found resistance, retreat. Having himself no particular opinions or tastes he relied upon whatever conformed with those of his companion. He was as ready to drink tea at Fortnum's as beer at the Prospect of Whitby; he would listen to military music in St. James's Park or jazz in Compton Street cellar; his voice would tremble with sympathy when he spoke of Sharpeville, or with indignation at the growth of Britain's colored population. To Leamas this observably passive role was repellent; it brought out the bully in him, so that he would lead the other gently into a position where he was committed, and then himself withdraw, so that Ashe was constantly scampering back from some cul-de-sac into which Leamas had enticed him. #Quote by John Le Carre
Hypocrisy quotes by Emily T. Wierenga
#102. It was about my spirit crying "Abba!" It was about years of hating the church for its hypocrisy and men for the way I'd always wanted my dad to hold me #Quote by Emily T. Wierenga
Hypocrisy quotes by Soseki Natsume
#103. Anyone who sang the praises of undying love in this day and age belonged to the first rank of hypocrites in Daisuke's estimate. #Quote by Soseki Natsume
Hypocrisy quotes by Jeffrey Toobin
#104. In public at least, Roberts himself purports to have a different view of the Court than his conservative sponsors. "Judges are like umpires," he said at his confirmation hearing. "Umpires don't make the rules; they apply them." Elsewhere, Roberts has often said, "Judges are not politicians." None of this is true. Supreme Court justices are nothing at all like baseball umpires. It is folly to pretend that the awesome work of interpreting the Constitution, and thus defining the rights and obligations of American citizenship, is akin to performing the rote […] task of calling balls and strikes. When it comes to the core of the Court's work, determining the contemporary meaning of the Constitution, it is ideology, not craft or skill, that controls the outcome of cases. #Quote by Jeffrey Toobin
Hypocrisy quotes by Kay Redfield Jamison
#105. I am tired of hiding, tired of misspent and knotted energies, tired of the hypocrisy, and tired of acting as though I have something to hide. #Quote by Kay Redfield Jamison
Hypocrisy quotes by KRS-One
#106. It's just hypocrisy on hip-hop's part to cry racial profiling when your race is on TV acting like fools. #Quote by KRS-One
Hypocrisy quotes by Mark Twain
#107. Look at the tyranny of party
at what is called party allegiance, party loyalty
a snare invented by designing men for selfish purposes
and which turns voters into chattels, slaves, rabbits; and all the while, their masters, and they themselves are shouting rubbish about liberty, independence, freedom of opinion, freedom of speech, honestly unconscious of the fantastic contradiction; and forgetting or ignoring that their fathers and the churches shouted the same blasphemies a generation earlier when they were closing thier doors against the hunted slave, beating his handful of humane defenders with Bible-texts and billies, and pocketing the insults nad licking the shoes of his Southern master. #Quote by Mark Twain
Hypocrisy quotes by Kyle Idleman
#108. These religious types were the fans that Jesus seems to have the most trouble with. Fans who will walk into a restaurant and bow their heads to pray before a meal just in case someone is watching. Fans who won't go to R-rated movies at the theater, but have a number of them saved on their DVR at home. Fans who may feed the hungry and help the needy, and then they make sure they work it into every conversation for the next two weeks. Fans who make sure people see them put in their offering at church, but they haven't considered reaching out to their neighbor who lost a job and can't pay the bills. Fans who like seeing other people fail because in their minds it makes them look better. Fans whose primary concern in raising their children is what other people think. Fans who are reading this and assuming I'm describing someone else. Fans who have worn the mask for so long they have fooled even themselves. #Quote by Kyle Idleman
Hypocrisy quotes by Rajneesh
#109. The disappearance of your person is not your disappearance, remember; on the contrary, it is your appearance. As your person disappears, your personality falls away; your individuality, your individual arises. To have a personality is hypocrisy. To be an individual is your birthright. #Quote by Rajneesh
Hypocrisy quotes by Bernard Capes
#110. Lady Sarah Henbery was his hostess, and the inspired projector of a new scheme of existence (that was, in effect, the repudiation of any scheme) that had become quite the 'thing.' She had found life an arbitrary design - a coil of days (like fancy pebbles, dull or sparkling) set in the form of a mainspring, and each gem responsible to the design. Then she had said, 'To-day shall not follow yesterday or precede to-morrow'; and she had taken her pebbles from their setting and mixed them higgledy-piggledy, and so was in the way to wear or spend one or the other as caprice moved her. And she became without design and responsibility, and was thus able to indulge a natural bent towards capriciousness to the extent that - having a face for each and every form of social hypocrisy and licence - she was presently hardly to be put out of countenance by the extremist expression of either.

It followed that her reunions were popular with worldlings of a certain order.

("The Accursed Cordonnier") #Quote by Bernard Capes
Hypocrisy quotes by Henry Johnson Jr
#111. Sometimes I wonder what the world would be like if we all got along. If there were no terrorism, Islamophobia, Western hypocrisy, corrupt government in African countries (especially Liberia), sexism, nativism, people like Donald Trump, stereotypes, war, Capitalism, Communism, Marxism and xenophobia. #Quote by Henry Johnson Jr
Hypocrisy quotes by Shane Claiborne
#112. The world is looking, not for Christians who are perfect, but for Christians who are honest and who are willing to be honest with some of our contradictions and hypocrisy. #Quote by Shane Claiborne
Hypocrisy quotes by John Lennon
#113. The main hangup in the world today is hypocrisy and insecurity. If people can't face up to the fact of other people being naked or smoking pot, or whatever they want to do, then we're never going to get anywhere. People have got to become aware that it's none of their business and that being nude is not obscene. Being ourselves is what's important. If everyone practiced being themselves instead of pretending to be what they aren't, there would be peace. #Quote by John Lennon
Hypocrisy quotes by James Richardson
#114. To condemn your sin in another is hypocrisy. Not to condemn is to reserve your right to sin. #Quote by James Richardson
Hypocrisy quotes by A.C. Grayling
#115. Nowadays, by contrast, Christianity specialises in soft-focus mood music; its threats of hell, its demand for poverty and chastity, its doctrine that only the few will be saved and the many damned, have been shed, replaced by strummed guitars and saccharine smiles. It has reinvented itself so often, and with such breath-taking hypocrisy, in the interests of retaining its hold on the gullible, that a medieval monk who woke today, like Woody Allen in Sleeper, would not be able to recognise the faith that bears the same name as his own. #Quote by A.C. Grayling
Hypocrisy quotes by Jung Chang
#116. On our way down, we passed a two-story villa, hidden in a thicket of Chinese parasol trees, magnolia, and pines. It looked almost like a random pile of stones against the background of the rocks. It struck me as an unusually lovely place, and I snapped my last shot. Suddenly a man materialized out of nowhere and asked me in a low but commanding voice to hand over my camera. He wore civilian clothes, but I noticed he had a pistol. He opened the camera and exposed my entire roll of film. Then he disappeared, as if into the earth. Some tourists standing next to me whispered that this was one of Mao's summer villas. I felt another pang of revulsion toward Mao, not so much for his privilege, but for the hypocrisy of allowing himself luxury while telling his people that even comfort was bad for them. After we were safely out of earshot of the invisible guard, and I was bemoaning the loss of my thirty-six pictures, Jin-ming gave me a grin: "See where goggling at holy places gets you!"

We left Lushan by bus. Like every bus in China, it was packed, and we had to crane our necks desperately trying to breathe. Virtually no new buses had been built since the beginning of the Cultural Revolution, during which time the urban population had increased by several tens of millions. After a few minutes, we suddenly stopped. The front door was forced open, and an authoritative-looking man in plainclothes squeezed in.

"Get down! Get down!" he barked.

Hypocrisy quotes by Laetitia Pilkington
#119. When a swinging sin is to be committed, there is nothing like a gown and a cassock to cover it. #Quote by Laetitia Pilkington
Hypocrisy quotes by George Soros
#120. In my view, philanthropy goes against the grain; therefore it generates a lot of hypocrisy and many paradoxes. Here are some examples: Philanthropy is supposed to be devoted to the benefit of others, but philanthropists are primarily concerned with their own benefit; philanthropy is supposed to help people, yet it often makes people dependent and turns them into objects of charity; applicants tell foundations what they want to hear, then proceed to do what the applicant wants to do. #Quote by George Soros
Hypocrisy quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#121. The liberal party said that marriage is an institution quite out of date, and that it needs reconstruction; and family life certainly afforded Stepan Arkadyevitch little gratification, and forced him into lying and hypocrisy, which was so repulsive to his nature. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Hypocrisy quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#122. In the years preceding the Civil War in America, Christian ministers wrote nearly half of all defenses of slavery. #Quote by Rachel Held Evans
Hypocrisy quotes by Orrin Woodward
#123. Rejecting God's truth b/c of mankind's hypocrisy is like rejecting mathematical truth b/c mankind's incompetence. #Quote by Orrin Woodward
Hypocrisy quotes by Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali
#124. Worldly desires were striving to keep me by their chains just where I was, while the voice of faith was calling, `To the road! to the road! What is left of life is but little and the journey before you is long. All that keeps you busy, both intellectually and practically, is but hypocrisy and delusion. If you do not prepare now for eternal life, when will you prepare? If you do not now sever these attachments, when will you sever them?' On hearing that, the impulse would be stirred and the resolution made to take to flight. #Quote by Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali
Hypocrisy quotes by Harriet Ann Jacobs
#125. There I sat, in that great city, guiltless of crime, yet not daring to worship God in any of the churches. I heard the bells ringing for afternoon service, and, with contemptuous sarcasm, I said, "Will the preachers take for their text, 'Proclaim liberty to the captive, and the opening of prison doors to them that are bound'? or will they preach from the text, 'Do unto others as ye would they should do unto you'? #Quote by Harriet Ann Jacobs

Hypocrisy quotes by Lee Strobel
#130. says he 'welcomes sinners and eats with them.'14 Now, think about that. In his culture, to dine with someone meant to offer friendship. The word welcome in Greek means that he took great pleasure in them. Jesus doesn't delight in sin, but he liked being around these people, maybe because they were well aware of their depravity, unlike many of the religious folks who masked it with hypocrisy. #Quote by Lee Strobel
Hypocrisy quotes by Ed Krassenstein

Hypocrisy quotes by Julie Metz
#132. Hypocrisy has its own elegant symmetry. #Quote by Julie Metz
Hypocrisy quotes by Samuel P. Huntington
#133. Arabs and other Muslims generally agreed that Saddam Hussein might be a bloody tyrant, but, paralleling FDR's thinking, "he is our bloody tyrant." In their view, the invasion was a family affair to be settled within the family and those who intervened in the name of some grand theory of international justice were doing so to protect their own selfish interests and to maintain Arab subordination to the west. #Quote by Samuel P. Huntington
Hypocrisy quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#134. Life is a fight, and the strongest wins. All civilization does is hide the blood and cover up the hate with pretty words! #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Hypocrisy quotes by William Bradford
#135. And I may not omit here a special work of God's providence. There was a proud and very profane young man [aboard the Mayflower], one of the seamen, of a lusty, able body, which made him the more haughty; he would always be contemning the poor people in their [sea]sickness, and cursing them daily with grievous execrations, and did not let to tell them, that he hoped to help cast half of them overboard before they came to their journey's end, and to make merry with what they had; and if he were by any gently reproved, he would curse and swear most bitterly.
But it pleased God before they came half seas over, to smite this young man with a grievous disease, of which he died in a desperate manner, and so was himself the first that was thrown overboard. Thus his curses light on his own head; and it was an astonishment to all his fellows, for they noted it to be the just hand of God upon him. #Quote by William Bradford
Hypocrisy quotes by Aberjhani

Hypocrisy quotes by Steve Grand

Hypocrisy quotes by Charles Shingledecker
#140. Isn't it an odd thing that doubting doctrines and dogmas not fully articulated until the Middle Ages can make you a heretic? Admitting to your pastor or priest that you doubt God, the Church, or the Bible can get you excommunicated. Yet treating your fellow human beings as though they were worthless scum will get you elected to the parish council (or to the U.S. Congress). Being open and honest about your faith - or lack thereof - will gain you ridicule and contempt. But take heart, fellow Christians. If you pretend everything is good, and that you are a faithful believer in all things, you most certainly will gain the respect of everyone in your community. Well, except the most important person of all - the guy who railed against hypocrisy: Jesus of Nazareth. #Quote by Charles Shingledecker
Hypocrisy quotes by Pearl S. Buck

Hypocrisy quotes by Dean Koontz
#148. The hypocrisy of human interaction, wherein selflessness was publicly championed and selfishness privately pursued, both amused and disgusted him. Every act of kindness seemed, to him, to be performed only with an eye to the payback that might one day be extracted from the recipient. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Hypocrisy quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#149. Philip wasn't the sort of man to make a friend of a woman. He wanted devotion. I gave him that. I did, you know. But I couldn't stand being made a fool of. I couldn;t stand being put on probation, like an office-boy, to see if I was good enough to be condescended to. I quite thought he was honest when he said he didn't believe in marriage
and then it turned out that it was a test, to see whether my devotion was abject enough. Well, it wasn't. I didn't like having matrimony offered as a bad-conduct prize. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers

Hypocrisy quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#154. Home was a place you lived, love was a thing you didn't fool yourself about, joy was a word that applied to a good Charleston, happiness was a term of hypocrisy used to bluff other people, a father was an individual who enjoyed his own existence, a husband was a man you lived with and kept going in spirits. #Quote by D.H.

Hypocrisy quotes by Peter Ustinov
#156. All the hideously calculated hypocrisy of men when they commit a murder in the name of justice. Then it's the time of death on a grander scale, the hour of the great offenses - fix your bayonets boys - gentlemen, synchronize your watches - in ten seconds time the barrage starts, ... a thousand men are destined to die in order to capture a farmhouse no one has lived in for years. #Quote by Peter Ustinov

Hypocrisy quotes by Ibn Ata Allah
#159. It is impossible that this gnosis resulting in the heart should be achieved by man for any other purpose than to obey God, love Him, and worship Him. This gnosis should be sought for the sake of God, not for any other reason whatsoever, unlike the remaining external acts of devotion, which can be performed for other worldly interests, such as hypocrisy, praise, and commendation. #Quote by Ibn Ata Allah

#163. No hypocrisy is too great when economic and financial elites are obliged to defend their interest. #Quote by Thomas Piketty
Hypocrisy quotes by Criss Jami
#164. Some virtues, when they become fashions, also become exaggerated. Just because nobody likes a judgmental attitude does not mean that there isn't a sort of spoiled, self-righteous hypocrisy when one man obsessively commands other men not to judge without knowing the circumstances without himself, too, knowing their circumstances behind their judgments. #Quote by Criss Jami
Hypocrisy quotes by Billy Graham
#165. Integrity is the glue that holds our way of life together. What our young people want to see in their elders is integrity, honesty, truthfulness, and faith. What they hate most of all is hypocrisy and phoniness ... Let them see us doing what we would like them to do. #Quote by Billy Graham
Hypocrisy quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#166. Humility is often only the putting on of a submissiveness by which men hope to bring other people to submit to them; it is a morecalculated sort of pride, which debases itself with a design of being exalted; and though this vice transform itself into a thousand several shapes, yet the disguise is never more effectual nor more capable of deceiving the world than when concealed under a form of humility. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Hypocrisy quotes by Vladimer Makarov
#167. All warfare is based on deception. For years, the West hypocrisy has made the world a battlefield. The corrupt talk while our brothers and sons spill their own blood. But deceit cuts both ways. The bigger the lie, the more likely people will believe it, and when a nation cries for vengeance, the lie spreads like a wildfire. The fire builds, devouring everything in its path. Our enemies believe that they alone dictate the course of history, and all it takes is the will of a single man. #Quote by Vladimer Makarov
Hypocrisy quotes by Haynes Johnson
#168. In the days following the crash, an axiom as old as the Republic came into play once more. In good times Wall Street wanted Washington to leave it alone. In bad times it wanted Washington to act. #Quote by Haynes Johnson
Hypocrisy quotes by Roger Williams
#169. It is infinitely better that the profane and loose be unmasked than to be muffled up under the veil and hood of traditional hypocrisy, which turns and dulls the very edge of all conscience either toward God or man. #Quote by Roger Williams
Hypocrisy quotes by Alexander Pope
#170. That character in conversation which commonly passes for agreeable is made up of civility and falsehood. #Quote by Alexander Pope
Hypocrisy quotes by Theodore Dalrymple
#171. The only permissible judgment in polite society is that no judgment is permissible. A century-long reaction against Victorian prudery, repression, and hypocrisy, led by intellectuals who mistook their personal problems for those of society as a whole, has created this confusion. It is as though these intellectuals were constantly on the run from their stern, unbending, and joyless forefathers - and as if they took as an unfailing guide to wise conduct either the opposite of what their forefathers said and did, or what would have caused them most offence, had they been able even to conceive of the possibility of such conduct. #Quote by Theodore Dalrymple
Hypocrisy quotes by Lincoln Steffens
#172. Boston has carried the practice of hypocrisy to the n-th degree of refinement, grace, and failure. #Quote by Lincoln Steffens
Hypocrisy quotes by Ray Comfort
#173. We need to pray for our nation like never before, and then put legs to our prayers and preach the gospel to a sin-loving and Hell-bound world. To pray for America and at the same time ignore that command to preach the gospel to every creature, is nothing but empty hypocrisy. It is to honor God with our lips and have cold hearts that are far from Him. May He give us a love that moves us from the pews into the streets, and from our homes into our universities. God save us from the cozy comfort of lukewarm contemporary Christianity. #Quote by Ray Comfort

Hypocrisy quotes by Moderata Fonte
#175. Do you really believe ... that everything historians tell us about men – or about women – is actually true? You ought to consider the fact that these histories have been written by men, who never tell the truth except by accident. #Quote by Moderata Fonte
Hypocrisy quotes by Eleanor Clift
#176. If privacy ends where hypocrisy begins, Kitty Kelley's steamy expose is a contribution to contemporary history. #Quote by Eleanor Clift
Hypocrisy quotes by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
#177. Don't worry, nothing's going to happen here. Skirmishes, pantomimes, and hypocrisy en masse for a while, that's for certain, but nothing serious. If we're unlucky, some idiot might go too far, but whoever holds the reins won't let anything get out of hand. It wouldn't be worth it. They'll be a fair amount of hullabaloo, but most of it will come to nothing. Records will be broken in the Olympic sport of coat turning and we'll see heroes merging from under the sofa. .. Its going to be like a long constipation. #Quote by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Hypocrisy quotes by Monks Of New Skete
#178. here's a very worthwhile question to meditate on: How are we, in our own way, going to express and live out the meaning contained in the prayer? Simply by rote recitation? It'll be nothing more than an exercise in futility and hypocrisy unless we seek to understand it and make it real in our lives." To #Quote by Monks Of New Skete
Hypocrisy quotes by Steve Maraboli
#179. I used to only write poetry; now I live it. I finally matured enough to starve my hypocrisy to death. #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Hypocrisy quotes by Arturo Perez Reverte
#180. But that is the way of life, and that was but one of the first times, among no few to come, that I was taught a useful lesson about how appearances trump truth, and how villains hide their vices behind masks of piety, honour, and decency. And that to denounce evildoers without proof, attack them with weapons, trust blindly in reason or justice, is often the fastest road toward one's own perdition, while the scoundrels who use influence or money as a shield remained untouched. #Quote by Arturo Perez Reverte
Hypocrisy quotes by Joseph Brant
#181. Do you call yourselves Christians? Does then the religion of Him whom you call your Savior inspire your spirit, and guide your practices? Surely not. It is recorded of him that a bruised reed he never broke. Cease, then, to call yourselves Christians, lest you declare to the world your hypocrisy. Cease, too, to call other nations savage, when you are tenfold more the children of cruelty than they. #Quote by Joseph Brant
Hypocrisy quotes by Mark Samuels
#182. A pessimist is a liar, unless he destroys himself, and no less of a hypocrite than a priest who defiles the holy. #Quote by Mark Samuels
Hypocrisy quotes by Joseph B. Wirthlin
#183. To be without guile is to be free of deceit, cunning, hypocrisy, and dishonesty in thought or action. #Quote by Joseph B. Wirthlin
Hypocrisy quotes by Edwin Hubbel Chapin

Hypocrisy quotes by Sri Aurobindo
#185. Our actual enemy is not any force exterior to ourselves, but our own crying weaknesses, our cowardice, our selfishness, our hypocrisy, our purblind sentimentalism. #Quote by Sri Aurobindo
Hypocrisy quotes by John Ortberg
#186. Religious hypocrisy is one of the great barriers to faith for any thoughtful person. Why become a Christian when the church is filled with so many hypocrites and deeply flawed people? Mark #Quote by John Ortberg
Hypocrisy quotes by Arundhati Roy
#187. Speaking for myself, I am no flag waver, no patriot, and I am fully aware that venality, brutality, and hypocrisy are imprinted on the leaden soul of every state. But when a country ceases to be merely a country and becomes an empire, then the scale of operations changes dramatically. So may I clarify that tonight I speak as a subject of the American empire? I speak as a slave who presumes to criticize her king. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Hypocrisy quotes by Virginia Woolf
#188. A woman knows very well that, though a wit sends her his poems, praises her judgment, solicits her criticism, and drinks her tea, this by no means signifies that he respects her opinions, admires her understanding, or will refuse, though the rapier is denied him, to run through the body with his pen. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Hypocrisy quotes by Jonathan Edwards

Hypocrisy quotes by Boris Spassky
#190. After I won the title, I was confronted with the real world. People do not behave naturally anymore - hypocrisy is everywhere. #Quote by Boris Spassky
Hypocrisy quotes by Robert G. Ingersoll
#191. I did say that to deny the existence of evil spirits, or to deny the existence of the devil, is to deny the truth of the New Testament; and that to deny the existence of these imps of darkness is to contradict the words of Jesus Christ.

I did say that if we give up the belief in devils we must give up the inspiration of the Old and New Testaments, and we must give up the divinity of Christ. Upon that declaration I stand, because if devils do not exist, then Jesus Christ was mistaken, or we have not in the New Testament a true account of what he said and of what he pretended to do.

If the New Testament gives a true account of his words and pretended actions, then he did claim to cast out devils. That was his principal business. That was his certificate of divinity, casting out devils. That authenticated his mission and proved that he was superior to the hosts of darkness.

Now, take the devil out of the New Testament, and you also take the veracity of Christ; with that veracity you take the divinity; with that divinity you take the atonement, and when you take the atonement, the great fabric known as Christianity becomes a shapeless ruin.

The Christians now claim that Jesus was God. If he was God, of course the devil knew that fact, and yet, according to this account, the devil took the omnipotent God and placed him upon a pinnacle of the temple, and endeavored to induce him to dash himself against the earth…

Think of it! T #Quote by Robert G. Ingersoll
Hypocrisy quotes by Mary Ruefle
#192. Every creative act is an act of hypocrisy and violence. You may have to think about it for a while, but I am sure you can discover your own. #Quote by Mary Ruefle
Hypocrisy quotes by M. Scott Peck
#193. Scientists are dedicated to asking questions in the search for truth. But they too are human, and like all humans, they would like their answers to be clean and clear and easy. In their desire for simple solutions, scientists are prone to fall into two traps as they question the reality of God. The first is to throw the baby out with the bath water. And the second is tunnel vision. There is clearly a lot of dirty bath water surrounding the reality of God. Holy wars. Inquisitions. Animal sacrifice. Human sacrifice. Superstition. Stultification. Dogmatism. Ignorance. Hypocrisy. Self-righteousness. Rigidity. Cruelty. Book-burning. Witch-burning. Inhibition. Fear. Conformity. Morbid guilt. Insanity. The list is almost endless. But is all this what God has done to humans or what humans have done to God? It is abundantly evident that belief in God is often destructively dogmatic. Is the problem, then, that humans tend to believe in God, or is the problem that humans tend to be dogmatic? #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Hypocrisy quotes by Jose Saramago
#194. This is neither the time nor the place, however, to ponder how often the soul, in order to be able to boast of a clean body, has burdened itself with sadness, envy, and impurity. #Quote by Jose Saramago
Hypocrisy quotes by Anton Chekhov
#195. After all, what a lot of contented, happy people there must be! What an overwhelming power that means! I look at this life and see the arrogance and the idleness of the strong, the ignorance and bestiality of the weak, the horrible poverty everywhere, overcrowding, drunkenness, hypocrisy, falsehood ... Meanwhile in all the houses, all the streets, there is peace; out of fifty thousand people who live in our town there is not one to kick against it all. #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Hypocrisy quotes by Oswald Chambers
#196. The deadliest Pharisaism today is not hypocrisy, but unconscious unreality. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Hypocrisy quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#197. To emancipate woman is to refuse to confine her to the relations she bears to man, not to deny them to her; let her have her independent existence and she will continue nonetheless to exist for him also: mutually recognising each other as subject, each will yet remain for the other an other. The reciprocity of their relations will not do away with the miracles – desire, possession, love, dream, adventure – worked by the division of human beings into two separate categories; and the words that move us – giving, conquering, uniting – will not lose their meaning. On the contrary, when we abolish the slavery of half of humanity, together with the whole system of hypocrisy that it implies, then the 'division' of humanity will reveal its genuine significance and the human couple will find its true form. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Hypocrisy quotes by Honore De Balzac
#198. One can imagine the look the two lovers exchanged; it was like a flame, for virtuous lovers have not a shred of hypocrisy. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Hypocrisy quotes by Guy Branum
#199. At the same time, we can't blame comedians for taking time to learn. Any critic of comedy who believes that he has always, universally, been on the right side of justice is engaging in a hypocrisy that is itself a joke. #Quote by Guy Branum
Hypocrisy quotes by Criss Jami
#200. In my experiences, the common critic of Christianity, when he thinks of Christianity, imagines a sort of elementary, Sunday School blunder of elements: fiery Hell, an angry God, 'try not to sin', 'be good so that you can go to Heaven', absurd miracles, hyper-fundamentalist tales, religious hypocrites, and Jesus telling people not to judge. There is no horse more dead than such. I maintain that understanding Christianity and the Bible is quite like painting a piece of art. Let a toddler paint a puppy; then let an adult who is a long-time painter paint the very same puppy. They are both paintings of the puppy, but one is far more detailed, rational, realistic, and believable than the other. One is distorted and comical; the other is proportional and lively. One can write off Theology if he so pleases, but he might not be very wise in using the toddler's painting when it comes time to identify the real puppy or when trying to confront actual men of the Faith. #Quote by Criss Jami
