Hundreds of hypocrite quotes show just how much hypocrisy is despised in today's society. Someone who is a hypocrite will say one thing but do another, or advocate for a specific action but then do something else completely different. If you pretend to be one thing when you are with others but this persona is fake then you are a hypocrite because you are not being honest and forthcoming. If you are religious but you break commandments when you think no one else will know then you are a hypocrite, because you do not practice what you preach. It takes true courage and real morals to follow what you say and to live by the same standards that you hold others to, and many in the world do not follow this rule.
