A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
I hope you have not been leading a double life, pretending to be wicked and really being good all the time. That would be hypocrisy.
The true hypocrite is the one who ceases to perceive his deception, the one who lies with sincerity.
People ask for criticism, but they only want praise.
—W. Somerset Maugham
