QUOTATION: Hypocrisy

Louis de Granada
Hypocrisy counsels: Assume the good qualities you do not possess, and make men think you better than you are, that you may not excite their contempt. Sincerity answers: It is better to be virtuous than to try to appear so. By attempting to deceive others you will only cause your own ruin.

--Louis de Granada, The Sinner's Guide
