Transcript.

Today's word is noblesse oblige, spelled as two words as it would be in French N-O-B-L-E-S-S-E O-B-L-I-G-E.

Noblesse Oblige is a noun that means the obligation of honorable, generous, and responsible behavior associated with high rank or birth. Here is the word used in a sentence by David Fitzsimmons from the Arizona Daily Star.

"When Alexis de Tocqueville visited our new nation in the 19th century, he observed that the average American possesses a curious spirit of initiative. When we see a problem or a need, rather than waiting on noblesse oblige from an aristocrat to rescue us, we do something about it ourselves."

In French, the term noblesse oblige means literally "nobility obligates." French speakers transformed the phrase into a noun, which English speakers picked up in the 19th century. Then, as now, noblesse oblige referred to the unwritten obligation of people from a noble ancestry to act honorably and generously to others. Later, by extension, it also came to refer to the obligation of anyone who is in a better position than others - due, for example, to high office or celebrity - to act responsibly and respectably toward others.
