a French phrase literally meaning “nobility obliges”. It is the concept that nobility extends beyond mere entitlements and requires the person with such status to fulfill social responsibilities, particularly in leadership roles; the obligation of honorable, generous, and responsible behaviour associated with high rank or birth.
Etymology: French, noblesse, “nobility” (ultimately from Latin nobilis, “knowable, known, well-known, famous, celebrated, high-born, of noble birth, excellent”) + oblige, “obliges” (ultimately from Latin ob, “to, against” + ligō, “bind, unite”).
