A Perfect Gentleman
"Brāhmaṇa means perfect gentleman. A rogue, thief, cannot become brāhmaṇa. Brāhmaṇa is perfect gentleman. Who feels for others, that is gentleman. Who does not feel for others, for his sense gratification, he is a rogue."

(Srila Prabhupada Morning Walk, Vrindavan, April 9, 1976)

"It is a gentleman’s greatest duty to be compassionate upon a person who is distressed."

(Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 4.27.26)

"There is no gentleman in the world. All rogues and thieves, cheaters, bluffers. Now we are creating gentlemen. Otherwise there is no gentlemen."

(Srila Prabhupada Morning Walk, Vrindavan, April 9, 1976)

Interviewer: "How would I recognize a true follower of the Krishna consciousness movement by his behavior? What would his traits be? What would his outward expressions be?"

Srila Prabhupada: “He will be a very perfect gentleman, that's all. You could not find any fault in him."

(Srila Prabhupada Interview, Gainesville, July 29, 1971)
