O villain, villain, smiling, damned villain!

My tables--meet it is I set it down,

That one may smile, and smile, and be a villain;

At least I'm sure it may be so in Denmark.
Hamlet, Hamlet
No one with a good public reputation is actually good, Orgullo. They’re just charlatans skilled at making themselves look good. Most people are easily fooled, so we can get away with it.
Akira Hidaka, Ultimo
And no wonder, for even Satan masquerades as an angel of light.
I can't stop the horrible respect people have for me.
Tracy Jordan, Thirty Rock
What? And spoil three years of good public relations? I have the Americans believing I am a nice guy. On some of their polls, I'm more popular than their President!
"Gorbachev", The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad

So is he [Banquo] mine [enemy]; and in such bloody distance,
That every minute of his being thrusts
Against my near'st of life: and though I could
With barefaced power sweep him from my sight
And bid my will avouch it, yet I must not,
For certain friends that are both his and mine,
Whose loves I may not drop, but wail his fall
Who I myself struck down; and thence it is,
That I to your assistance do make love,
Masking the business from the common eye

For sundry weighty reasons.
Macbeth, Macbeth
