"…it is almost a definition of a gentleman to say he is one who never inflicts pain … He never speaks of himself except when compelled, never defends himself by mere retort, he has no ears for slander or gossip … and interprets every thing for the best. He is never mean or little in his disputes, never takes unfair advantage… From a long-sighted prudence, he observes the maxim of the ancient sage, that we should ever conduct ourselves towards our enemy as if he were one day to be our friend… He is patient, forbearing, and resigned, on philosophical principles; he submits to pain, because it is inevitable, to bereavement, because it is irreparable, and to death, because it is his destiny."

— John Henry Newman, ‘The Idea of a University’
