you instantiate a descendant and don't care about the implementation
check TStrings and TStringList
think of abstract classes as of interfaces without reference counting

An abstract class never gets instantiated. Therefor, no Constructor. Abstract classes are very useful as conceptual abstractions of responsibility, and serve as super classes to other concrete classes that do get instantiated.
