A true gentleman is not harsh, implacable, or capricious. The breaking of other
men's wills gives him no pleasure. Christ's followers, He said, must avoid all
selfish wish for ascendency. A ruler, He said, should regard himself as the
servant of all. Where ruling is concerned the counsels of Christ seem, like all His
most characteristic utterances, to be calculated rather to inspire aspiration in the
minds of good men than definitely to regulate their action, for in more than one of
the parables ...

Tom was so frightened that he longed to creep into a hole; but he need not have
been; for salmon are all true gentlemen, and, like true gentlemen, they look noble
and proud enough, and yet, like true gentlemen, they never harm or quarrel with
any one, but go about their own business, and leave rude fellows to themselves.
The salmon looked him full in the face, and then went on without minding him,
with a swish or two of his tail which made the stream boil again. And in a few ...

After gazing at him until his form was lost in the darkness, the captain muttered to
himself — " He is no more than a common pilot, after all ! No true gentleman
would have received so palpable a hint with such a start. Ah ! here comes the
party of my worthy friend whose palate knows a grape of the north side of
Madeira from one of the south. The dog has the throat of a gentleman ; we will
see how he can swallow a delicate allusion to his faults !" Borroughcliffe stepped
aside to allow the ...

No true gentleman would want to expose his friends to a person like that.” Mrs.
Jeffries thought that a “true gentleman” wouldn't commit a murder either. “Do you
honestly think that's why Seaward killed him?” she asked softly. “To save his
friends?” Witherspoon looked thoughtful. “I don't really know. I'd like to think so.”
Betsy frowned. “But why'd he kill himself? You told us when you first come in that
the case against him was pretty circum...” “Circumstantial?” the inspector
supplied ...

If I confess that I am no gentleman, I shall save myself from answering what the
symbolis, but at the expense of my honour, which I hold dearer than you might
have been led to believe. On the other hand, if I confess what the symbol is and
provide an erudite exposition of my conversational skills, I shall vouch for my
ability to perform the gentlemanly arts. However, discussing that symbol with any
well-bred girl is a conversational topic that no true gentleman would broach. So I
ask ...

A gentleman didn't discuss such things with a lady, and his companion was
definitely a lady; a sheltered one at that in spite of her innate penchant for
boldness. But he was not a true gentleman for all his outer trappings to the
contrary and that made all the difference. True gentlemen were boring. He'd met
them at his clubs. He would tell her and she would be shocked but perhaps
deliciously so. His eyes lingered on the pale rose of her lips, guardians of that
most kissable mouth.

There were enough true gentlemen to retain for the order its traditional prestige,
but too few, owning too few resources, for the traditional criteria to maintain a
commanding influence. Everyone in the colonies – including those with the best
claims to be gentlemen – was closely involved in moneymaking. If trade in sheep
and cattle, or speculation in squatting runs was allowable, there were no grounds
for excluding merchants from the gentlemanly circle.8No doubt Donaldson and
other ...

But that he was not to be, without ignorance or prejudice, mistaken for a
gentleman, my father most strongly asseverates; because it is a principle of his
that no man who was not a true gentleman at heart, ever was, since the world
began, a true gentleman in manner. He says, no varnish can hide the grain of the
wood; and that the more varnish you put on, the more the grain will express itself.
Well! This man pursued Miss Havisham closely, and professed to be devoted to
her. I believe ...

No varnish can hide the grain of the wood, as my cousin Matthew once said of my
late husband, adding that no man who was not a true gentleman at heart ever
was a true gentleman in manner. George, however, succeeded in passing
himself off as well-born and welleducated and in his last years only his wife and
daughter knew the real man behind the smile and the black clothes and those
snowwhite pocket handkerchiefs. I and Estella alone knew the criminality hidden
under the ...
