Hypocrisy invisible except to God

1 May 2022 | Humankind | 0 comments

Hypocrisy – the only evil that walks

Invisible except to God alone,

By his permissive will, through heaven and earth;

And oft, though wisdom wake, suspicion sleeps

At wisdom’s gate, and to simplicity

Resigns her charge, while goodness thinks no ill

Where no ill seems….


John Milton (1608-74), Paradise Lost.
