QUOTES ON INSINCERITY

Insincerity is always weakness; sincerity even in error is strength.

GEORGE HENRY LEWES, The Principles of Success in Literature

The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one’s real and one’s declared aims, one turns, as it were, instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish squirting out ink.

GEORGE ORWELL, The Lion and the Unicorn

Sincerity is an openness of heart; we find it in very few people; what we usually see is only an artful dissimulation to win the confidence of others.

LA ROCHEFOUCAULD, Reflections
