Maxim 218 : L'hypocrisie est un hommage que le vice rend à la vertu.
- Hypocrisy is an homage that vice pays to virtue.
Hypocrisy is commonly thought of not practicing what you preach. But this is not the true sense of a Hypocrite. If a person doesn't attempt to hide or deceive you into thinking that he does practice what he preaches then he would not be a hypocrite. He would instead be the person who states "Do what I say, not what I do".
Maybe that is the definition of a preacher. :)
