INCONSISTENCY
[ Also see Absurdity Change Consistency Contrast Fickleness Inconstancy Mutability ]

I will have naught to do with a man who can blow hot and cold with the same breath.
      - Aesop

Woman is a most charming creature, who changes her heart as easily as she does her gloves.
      - Honore de Balzac

There are some who affect a want of affectation, and flatter themselves that they are above flattery; they are proud of being thought extremely humble, and would go round the world to punish those who thought them capable of revenge; they are so satisfied of the suavity of their own temper that they would quarrel with their dearest benefactor only for doubting it.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

One cannot live without inconsistency.
      - Carl Gustav Jung

Men talk as if they believed in God, but they live as if they thought there was none; their vows and promises are no more than words, of course.
      - Sir Roger L'Estrange

Only imagine a man acting for one single day on the supposition that all his neighbors believe all that they profess, and act up to all that they believe!
      - Thomas Babington Macaulay

Inconsistency is the only thing in which men are consistent.
      - Horace (Horatio) Smith (a/k/a Paul Chatfield),
        Tin Trumpet (vol. I, p. 273)

I have known several persons of great fame for wisdom in public affairs and councils governed by foolish servants. I have known great ministers, distinguished for wit and learning, who preferred none but dunces. I have known men of valor cowards to their wives. I have known men of cunning perpetually cheated. I knew three ministers who would exactly compute and settle the accounts of a kingdom, wholly ignorant of their own economy.
      - Horace (Horatio) Walpole, 4th Earl of Orford

Inconsistencies of opinion, arising from changes of circumstances, are often justifiable.
      - Daniel Webster
