Jonathan Shapiro, cartoonist

There is so much hypocrisy in sports.

Dennis Rodman, basketball player

Even modern English people are imperious, superior, ridden by class. All of the hypocrisy and the difficulties that are endemic in being British also make it an incredibly fertile place culturally. A brilliant place to live. Sad but true.

Rural towns aren't always idyllic. It's easy to feel trapped and be aware of social hypocrisy.

What makes it so plausible to assume that hypocrisy is the vice of vices is that integrity can indeed exist under the cover of all other vices except this one.

If we divine a discrepancy between a man's words and his character, the whole impression of him becomes broken and painful; he revolts the imagination by his lack of unity, and even the good in him is hardly accepted.

Charles Horton Cooley, sociologist

At the entrance of a second person, hypocrisy begins.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, poet

Man is the only animal that learns by being hypocritical. He pretends to be polite and then, eventually, he becomes polite.

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.

Bernard Mandeville,

Hypocrisy is the most difficult and nerve-racking vice that any man can pursue; it needs an unceasing vigilance and a rare detachment of spirit. It cannot, like adultery or gluttony, be practiced at spare moments; it is a whole-time job.

W. Somerset Maugham, playwright

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.

Thomas Paine, writer

Hypocrisy in anything whatever may deceive the cleverest and most penetrating man, but the least wide-awake of children recognizes it, and is revolted by it, however ingeniously it may be disguised.

Ethel Waters, musician

When I saw corruption, I was forced to find truth on my own. I couldn't swallow the hypocrisy.

Barry White,

When you see a great deal of religion displayed in his shop window, you may depend on it, that he keeps a very small stock of it within.

Charles Spurgeon, preacher

There's a lot more hypocrisy than before. Racism has gone back underground.

Richard Pryor, actor

I will use whatever position I have in order to root out hypocrisy. Democrats have strong moral values. Frankly, my moral values are offended by some of the things I hear on programs like "Rush Limbaugh," and we don't have to put up with that.

Howard Dean, politician

I always tell people that religious institutions and political institutions should be separate. So while I'm telling people this, I myself continue with them combined. Hypocrisy!
