“Mr. Pecksniff”

“It was a special quality, among the many admirable qualities possessed by Mr. Pecksniff, that the more he was found out, the more hypocrisy he practiced. Let him be discomfited in one quarter, and he refreshed and recompensed himself by carrying the war into another. If his working and windings were detected by A, so much the greater reason was there for practicing without loss of time on B, if it were only to keep his hand in.” Charles Dickens
