How can you be a noble person?

Not in the feudal way, but as in the respectable and giving way

    You've been given some excellent advice, Kenta, but I think the simplest solution is to follow the golden rule. Treat others as you wish other people would treat you. One final piece of advice. Don't try to be noble. Nobility is given to you by others; you can never achieve it without all the souls whose lives you touch.

    You can ignore this. A priest in a monastery told this story to me. A monk came to the abbot and said he wanted to be the humblest of them all and asked what he should do. The abbot said "Practice humility in all things." So the monk did and a year later, he asked the abbot if he had achieved his goal. The abbot said no. He tried for another year and again asked the abbot if he had succeeded. The abbot said yes. His fellow monks gave him a badge to celebrate his achievement. The moment he put it on, they took it away from him. My point: don't seek nobility, it will find you if you deserve it.

    Righteousness is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west, but [true] righteousness is [in] one who believes in Allah, the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask [for help], and for freeing slaves; [and who] establishes prayer and gives zakah; [those who] fulfill their promise when they promise; and [those who] are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle. Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are the righteous.

    Pledge yourself, above all other considerations, to noble principles: kindness, honesty, humility, and courage, being the foremost, and remain true to them always.

    By serving God and others as per the New Testament, which I encourage you to read.

    To coin a phrase "to give and not to count the cost"! This involves giving what you can, where you can, when you can, and perhaps rather more than you can afford in each case of need (and not just in financial terms). To do what is right rather than what's easy and to be humble about it.

    Exactly that, and also by serving others, considering others first, and trying daily to improve on the previous day’s progress

    Know yourself and your motives.

    Learn by others' examples (Saint Thomas More, Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Dr. Albert Schweitzer, your own better relatives).

    Learn to earn:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maslow's_hierarchy_o... and learn to love with empathy and compassion, and not with the mere human sympathy (defined as incorrect empathy and incorrect compassion).

    Find that which resonates with your own love; e.g. Save the Whales, Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity, Smile Train, etc.  For example, every $250 you give to Smile Train changes a child's life, and the lives of his parents and society, dramatically:  less personal and social pain and ostracism, greatly increased lifetime income, etc.  https://www.nhl.com/islanders/news/film-about-smil...

    One may even be a loving wife and mother, and raise up children to be examples of good faith.  That too is heroic, noble.
