Proverbs about priests

Old rhyme, possibly Scottish:
“I cannot praise the Preacher’s eyes,
I never saw his glance divine,
He always shuts his eyes when he prays,
And when he preaches he shuts mine.”

“Hood an ass with reverend purple so you can hide his two ambitious ears, and he shall pass for a cathedral doctor.” Ben Johnson

“There are many preachers who don’t hear themselves.” German
