A Quote by unknown on business, chastity, christ, contentment, discretion, family, fatherhood, friendship, god, happiness, hospitality, jesus, needs, providence, purity, rest, reward, saints, study, virtue, work, and world

The true gentleman is God's servant. The world's master and his own man. Virtue is his business, study his recreation. Contentment his rest and happiness his reward. God is his father, Jesus Christ his Savior, the Saints his brethren, and all that need him his friends. Devotion is his chaplain, chastity his chamberlain, sobriety his butler, temperance his work, hospitality his housekeeper, providence his steward, purity his mistress of the house, and discretion his porter, to be let in and out as most fit; thus is his whole family made up of virtue and he is the master of the house.
