The idea of the four groups nuance a subcategory of humanity, some people rise above and are outside these four groups. Below are examples of two people that I believe meet this criteria.    -Benjamin Schafer

“All mankind is divided into three classes: those that are immovable, those that are movable, and those that move. “

Benjamin Franklin

“I will give you a talisman. Whenever you are in doubt, or when the self becomes too much with you, apply the following test. Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man [woman] whom you may have seen, and ask yourself, if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him [her]. Will he [she] gain anything by it? Will it restore him [her] to a control over his [her] own life and destiny? In other words, will it lead to swaraj [freedom] for the hungry and spiritually starving millions?

Then you will find your doubts and your self melt away.”

– One of the last notes left behind by Gandhi in 1948, expressing his deepest social thought.
