The word “gentleman” has its origin from the Latin word “gentilis” which means belonging to a race and man which is akin to the French word “gentilhomme.” Gentlemen are well-educated and civilised men belonging to noble families, possessing some sort of distinction. Gentlemen dress perfectly, speak eloquently and conduct themselves with great politeness in public. They have refined mannerisms and etiquettes and can be easily distinguished from the rest of the crowd.
H.L. Mencken had once remarked, “A church is a place in which gentlemen that have never been to heaven brag about it to persons who will never get there.” Gentlemen are civilised males, who have had great upbringing and possess great qualities of mind and character. Their personality and voice differs from a male who has not been brought up in a similar environment. Guys in slums are uncivilised and lack the basic etiquettes.
