“But that man is no true gentleman.” “Mind your tongue, Bentley!” “No! I won't,” the
young man hotly insisted. “He's nothing but an upstart and has treated you—my
sister— like a common slut. I won't have it, I tell you.” Catherine's eyes narrowed
to angry slits. “As usual, Bentley, you are completely clueless—” But Max cut her
off, shouldering her aside. “I may be no gentleman, sir,” he snarled, standing toe
to toe with Bentley. “But insult your sister once more at your peril.” Her face a
mask ...

It means that we women are not to ask or to know anything more about it," she
said, "it means some unworthy gambling transaction ; it means some vile
aspersion of character ; it means some insult such as no true gentleman gives,
and such as no true gentleman receives ; it means some senseless quarrel about
a woman with no heart, and no principle, and no honour, but with a beautiful face
and a wily tongue. These are the 'honourable' things for which gentlemen fight,"
she added, ...

No gentleman is arrogant, or supercilious toward others, especially toward his
inferiors in position. Nor, on the other hand, will you ever see in him any thing of
that offensive condescension, nor that peculiar tone and manner towards them,
which constantly and unpleasantly makes them feel that one thinks them beneath
him, and is civil or polite rather out of regard to what is due to himself, than what
is due to them. This is a great touchstone of a true gentleman. In fine, no true ...

Our mother Knglish has variety enough to make a story sparkle, and give point to
wit ; it has toughness enough to furnish the sinews for a debate, and to drive
home conviction, without degrading the holy epithets of Jehovah?' How painful
must it be to the real gentleman, not the "gentleman" by mere caste or accident, to
hear the Divine Name taken in vain. No gentleman — no true gentleman will do
this. How still more painful to the Christian to hear blasphemed that worthy, ...

Not only was Abraham eager to show kindness, but also he was, as every true
Christian ought to be, polite and courteous. Although so rich in all things, that of a
certainty he had many servants, he himself offers to get water to wash their tired,
heated feet. This is ever in those sultry climates, (where they wore sandals, not
shoes,) the first act of hospitality shown to a traveller, and is most refreshing. He
thus showed us that no true gentleman is ever demeaned by any honest work, ...

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 ...

... true gentleman ever stoops to this most base and contemptible vice. I have, of
course, heard many attempt to extenuate their indulgence in the habit, by
referring it to thoughtlessness ; but I can assure such, that no true gentleman is a
thoughtless, much less a wicked being. (17) « tnd why should not the Devil play
the priest." Satan being the acknowledged author of evil, I can perceive no
impropriety in using the more common appellation by which he is desig- nated.

And there is no disgrace-in a worn garment, a bronzed countenance, a calloused
hand, or muscles hardened with much toil. Manual toil is not only a providential
necessity in the world, but an advantage and pleasure to every wellgoverned
mind. No true gentleman was ever _ ashamed to dig in his garden, or to attend to
the duties of any legitimate business. Indeed, the true gentleman never asks the
most menial to perform what he is ashamed to do himself. A woman is none the
less a ...

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

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
