Any analysis of human behaviour, however rudimentary, should take account of such phenomena. Historically, such human beings have existed. Human beings who have worked – worked hard – all their lives with no other motive than their love and devotion; who have literally given their lives for others, out of love and devotion. Human beings who have no sense of having made any sacrifice; who cannot imagine any other way of life than living their lives for others – out of love and devotion. In general, such human beings are invariably women.
