I've been searching for it for 15 minutes but I can't find it as yet. The quote I was looking for reads something like this: "What a woman may expect from a men is food and a roof above her head. All the other things she is looking for is for her self-unrolling." If I remember well there was a negative connotation connected to it too - or was it me?
Yesterday I realized that the man who spoke these words is "trapped" in Maslow's 'physiological' level and could or didn't want to follow his love into her being on the level of 'self-actualization'.
P.S. I wrote on Maslow before: 'On Cincinnatus and Julius Caesar. Do selfish genes feel by definition: the chosen ones?' (2010) and 'One Definition Fits None' (2012).
