Most everyone seems willing to be a fool himself, but he can't bear to have anyone else one. ~Josh Billings


They are not all saints who use holy water. ~English Proverb


The true hypocrite is the one who ceases to perceive his deception, the one who lies with sincerity. ~André Gide


God has given you one face, and you make yourself another. ~William Shakespeare
