Aspiring to Be A Gentleman - Reserved Dignity

Aspiring to be a gentleman isn't like going to an etiquette or charm school. And no you don't need to own a suit, know the thread count or difference between a blazer or sports coat. Your cologne choice wont make you a gentleman. Your place of residence wont make you one. The amount of stamps in your passport will not give you that credibility. You don't need to have a little blank book or dozens of female conquests in your phone either. Being a gentleman's is the reserved dignity that comes from doing the right thing at the right time. Its being mentally strong and powerful. It comes from a deep sense of responsibility to experience life in all its beauty and trails. Not taking anything for granted, rising above the fray and making out for yourself and those around you a life of meaning. Bring this dignity to the smallest things you do and every environment you place yourself in and you will be halfway there.
