    I was raised to be a gentleman. I was raised to respect my elders. That women are a precious thing to be treasured. That ones family is sacred above all else. That a man has a duty to protect his neighbor. Every man is supposed to conduct himself in a way that reflects well...

    Cardinal Newman

    Hence it is that it is almost a definition of a gentleman to say that he is one who never inflicts pain. This description is both refined and, as far as it goes, accurate. He is mainly occupied in merely removing the obstacles which hinder the free and unembarrassed action of...

    Matters Of Honor

    I wonder sometimes if part of the decline of gentlemanly behavior is partly because we no longer respect or expect some one to hold to codes of honor. There was a time with a man insulted your mother or your wife you could call them out and either they could apologize or you...

    A gentleman will bring you flowers on your first date, particularly 1 single flower, and not a rose of red, but a rose of yellow. A gentleman will hold the door open for you and close the door behind you as you're getting into a car. A gentleman will open every and all doors for...
