Stabbing in the front, and not in the back.
Thank you Oscar Wilde :)
Right thought, right action, eh? Sounds good to me
...making those around you feel comfortable. That is a definition I heard at one time and I have always liked it.
Being a gentleman means to treat others with respect and to hold yourself to the highest standards.

Being a gentleman means having a quiet strength and a kind heart!
Shaun,

Your definition is what I have always been taught was the definition of Wisdom. Good call.

For me, being a gentleman means putting the good of others before your own.
"Gentlemen be those whom their race and blood, or at the least their virtues, do make noble and known"
William Harrison

Being a Gentleman means being the type of man that is an example for other men to become through noble action and civil deed.

There are those who act like gentleman yet will do wrong when they feel like it, a real gentleman wants to better himself not only for his own sake, but for society's as well.
Well said!
Can I give you a +100 on this?
