It was a little long so we took a excerpt for the tattoo. "The True Gentleman is the man whose conduct proceeds from good will and an acute sense of propriety
and whose self-control is equal to all emergencies;
who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty, the obscure man of his obscurity, or any man of his inferiority or deformity;
who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble another; who does not flatter wealth,
cringe before power,
or boast of his own possessions or achievements; who speaks with frankness but always with sincerity and sympathy;
whose deed follows his word; who thinks of the rights and feelings of others rather than his own;
and who appears well in any company; a man with whom honor is sacred and virtue safe." -John Walter Wayland
