The Devil Can Cite Scripture

Mark you this, Bassanio,
The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.
An evil soul producing holy witness
Is like a villain with a smiling cheek,
A goodly apple rotten at the heart:
O, what a goodly outside falsehood hath

Merchant of Venice, Act 1, Scene 3 (Antonio speaking to Bassanio regarding the villain, Shylock)
