Other men's sins are before our eyes; our own behind our backs.
  [Lat., Aliena vitia in oculis habemus; a tergo nostra sunt.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca), De Ira
         (II, 28)

The greater part of mankind are angry with the sinner and not with the sin.
  [Lat., Magna pars hominum est, quae non peccatis irascitur sed peccantibus.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca), De Ira
         (II, 28)

We are all sinful. Therefore whatever we blame in another we shall find in our own bosoms.
  [Lat., Omnes mali sumus. Quidquid itaque in alio reprehenditur, id unusquisque in suo sinu inveniet.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca), De Ira
         (III, 26)

Sin is a state of mind, not an outward act.
      - Rev. William Sewell,
        Passing Thoughts on Religion--Wilful Sin

Confess thee freely of thy sin; for to deny each article with oath, cannot remove nor choke the strong conception that I do groan withal.
      - William Shakespeare

Cut off even in the blossoms of my sin.
      - William Shakespeare

From love of grace,
  Lay not that flatt'ring unction to your soul,
    That not your trespass, but my madness speaks:
      It will but skin and film the ulc'rous place;
        Whilst rank corruption, mining all within,
          Infects unseen; confess yourself to heav'n;
            Repent what's past, avoid what is to come;
              And do not spread the compost on the weeds
                To make them ranker.
      - William Shakespeare

He is no man on whom perfections wait,
  That, knowing sin within, will touch the gate.
      - William Shakespeare

O, 'tis the cunning livery of hell,
  The damned'st body to invest and cover
    In princely guards.
      - William Shakespeare

Robes and furr'd gowns hide all. Plate sin with gold,
  And the strong lance of justice hurtless breaks;
    Arm it in rags, a pigmy's straw doth pierce it.
      - William Shakespeare

Sin will pluck on sin.
      - William Shakespeare

Though some of you with Pilate wash your hands
  Showing an outward pity; yet you Pilates
    Have here deliver'd me to my sour cross,
      And water cannot wash away your sin.
      - William Shakespeare

Have you a ruffian that will swear, drink, dance,
  Revel the night, rob, murder, and commit
    The oldest sins the newest kind of ways?
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Prince Henry at IV, v)

It is great sin to swear unto a sin,
  But greater sin to keep a sinful oath.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part II
         (Salisbury at V, i)

I am a man
  More sinned against than sinning.
      - William Shakespeare, King Lear
         (King Lear at III, ii)

Through tattered clothes small vices do appear;
  Robes and furred gowns hide all. Plate sin with gold,
    And the strong lance of justice hurtless breaks;
      Arm it in rags, a pygmy's straw does pierce it.
      - William Shakespeare, King Lear
         (King Lear at IV, vi)

Through tattered clothes small vices do appear;
  Robes and furred gowns hide all. Plate sin with gold,
    And the strong lance of justice hurtless breaks;
      Arm it in rags, a pigmy's straw doth pierce it.
      - William Shakespeare, King Lear
         (King Lear at IV, vi)

Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall.
      - William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure
         (Escalus at II, i)

Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall:
  Some run from breaks of ice, and answer none,
    And some condemned for a fault alone.
      - William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure
         (Escalus at II, i)

O, fie, fie, fie!
  Thy sin's not accidental, but a trade;
    Mercy to thee would prove itself a bawd,
      'Tis best that thou diest quickly.
      - William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure
         (Isabella at III, i)

O, what authority and show of truth
  Can cunning sin cover itself withal!
      - William Shakespeare,
        Much Ado About Nothing
         (Claudio at IV, i)

Few love to hear the sins they love to act.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Pericles at I, i)

Great king,
  Few love to hear the sins they love to act.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Pericles at I, i)

Some sins do bear their privilege on earth,
  And so doth yours; your fault was not your folly.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life and Death of King John
         (Bastard at I, i)

Nay, all of you that stand and look upon
  Whilst that my wretchedness doth bait myself,
    Though some of you, with Pilate, wash your hands,
      Showing an outward pity, yer you Pilates
        Have here delivered me to my sour cross,
          And water cannot wash away your sin.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Second
         (King Richard at IV, i)
