What Exactly is Class?
It is one of those valuable, "intangible" personal traits that is in high demand because it is so rare. Many people, unfortunately, do not have it. Class is being a good person, showing good sportsmanship, always taking responsibility for the consequences of your actions and being considerate to others. You have class is you show pride, have humility, poise, and display self-confidence without being arrogant.
*Class never runs scared. It is sure-footed and confident in the knowledge that you can meet life head-on.
*Class never makes excuses. It takes its lumps and learns from past mistakes.
*Class is considerate of others. It knows that good manners are nothing more than a series of petty sacrifices.
*Class never tries to build itself up by tearing others down.
*Class can "walk with kings and keep its virtue, and talk with crowds and keep the common touch."
If you have class, you don't need much of anything else. If you don't have it, no matter what else you have - it doesn't make much difference.
