Gentleman Quotations

A gentleman is simply a patient wolf.
Lana Turner

A gentleman is one who never hurts anyone's feelings unintentionally.
Oscar Wilde

I think a gentleman is someone who holds the comfort of other people above their own. The instinct to do that is inside every good man, I believe. The rules about opening doors and buying dinner and all of that other 'gentleman' stuff is a chess game, especially these days.
Anna Kendrick

A tramp, a gentleman, a poet, a dreamer, a lonely fellow, always hopeful of romance and adventure.

The final test of a gentleman is his respect for those who can be of no possible service to him.
