From Collected Shorter Fiction, Volume One, by Leo Tolstoy, translated by Louise and Aylmer Maude
"He was exceedingly neat, elegantly dressed, fresh-looking, and had self-confidently modest manners and a very youthful, almost childlike, appearance which made one unconsciously forgive the expression of self-satisfaction and of a desire to mitigate the degree of his superiority over you, which his intelligent face, and especially his smile, always showed."
From A Moscow Acquaintance
