A Quote by Augustus William Hare on ambition, desires, judgment, oppression, quiet, and temper
The real gentleman is one who is gentle in everything, at least in everything that depends on himself - in carriage, temper, constructions, aims, desires. He is mild, calm, quiet, even temperate - not hasty in judgment, not exorbitant in ambition, not overbearing, not proud, not rapacious, not oppressive.
