Ben Wenger

How do you define a gentleman?

Someone who thinks of others as above himself, and acts accordingly.

Do gentlemen still exist? Why or not?

Of course! Being a gentleman is not a you are or you aren’t; rather, it is a mentality, a lifestyle, a mindset, accessible to all who take on the challenge, and reflected in actions.

What is the best piece of gentlemanly advice you have received?

 Put yourself in their shoes.

What is something you have done or said that exemplifies a gentleman?

 Wash dishes for guys in my house (17 of us) when I could use my power as house manager to assign the duties to someone else.
