A person. Humans are living, breathing entities capable of feeling and showing emotions, such as love, hate, compassion, and indifference. Some, but not all, humans are considerate and generous. Humans are fallible, although some deny that. Most, but not all, humans are forgiving of the faults of others. (I sincerely hope that you love this book passionately, forgive me for any errors you find in it, and generously give copies of it to all of your friends and acquaintances.) Humans are still necessary, although many of their functions have been automated by machines. See also automated attendant and machine.
