human nature (uncountable)

  1. The fundamental set of qualities, and the range of behaviour, shared by all humans.
    • 1922, Ben Travers, chapter 5, A Cuckoo in the Nest:
      The most rapid and most seductive transition in all human nature is that which attends the palliation of a ravenous appetite. There is something humiliating about it. [] Can those harmless but refined fellow-diners be the selfish cads whose gluttony and personal appearance so raised your contemptuous wrath on your arrival?
