HAGAKURE - The Way of the Samurai

"An avaricious man oversteps the pale of morality; but as his evil lies on the surface, the harm he does to society is visible and shallow. 
A hypocrite who is covetous of a good name, on the contrary, acts secretly under the mask of virtue; the injury [s]he gives to the cause of justice is therefore hidden and deep-rooted." 

(Hong Zicheng: Caigentan)
