Demarcation

A successful gentleman is as remarkable in Kansas as he is in the most cosmopolitan venue.

A true gentleman is remarkable, be he in an urbane setting or at a county fair in Kansas.

While the meanings of the words have become conflated, a gentleman knows that “situation” and “circumstance” have very different definitions. His situation is merely an element of his circumstance; considered along with other, more material, attributes that affect his general circumstance and countenance, his situation scarcely matters.
