About this Quote

In this quote, King James I is highlighting the difference in between titles and real character. He is saying that while he has the power to bestow a title of "lord" upon somebody, it is ultimately as much as God to shape an individual into a real gentleman. This indicates that being a gentleman is not almost having a title or position of power, but it is a reflection of one's inner qualities and values. King James I is emphasizing the value of humility and stability, and reminding us that real nobility originates from within, not from external titles or status.
