advice; here are some examples which Will and Guy find quite amusing.

whispered the cue, 'I am the light of the world.'
Dermot beamed and with great feeling and a loud clear voice announced, 'My
Father is the light of the world.'

In 1912, Country Life wrote that 'few words come to convey so beautiful a
meaning as that of "Gentleman".'
English gentleman never shows-off. Any blatant self-promotion would
immediately disqualify one from being a gentleman. In this
respect becoming a gentleman is rather like the reverse of Groucho Marx

Talking of hunting, Oscar Wilde summed up country gentleman galloping
after a fox as:-
"The unspeakable in full pursuit of the uneatable".

notice on the board demanding that the nobleman who stole his umbrella at
once return it. When a fellow member asked how he knew that the
culprit was a noblemen he replied: "Sir, the rules of this club state that
it is for noblemen and gentlemen. And no gentleman would have taken my
