Famous quotes containing the word distinctive:

    We see us as we truly behave:
    From every corner comes a distinctive offering.
    The train comes bearing joy....
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    Progress, man’s distinctive mark alone,
    Not God’s, and not the beasts’: God is, they are,
    Man partly is and wholly hopes to be.
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)

    Fortunately, the time has long passed when people liked to regard the United States as some kind of melting pot, taking men and women from every part of the world and converting them into standardized, homogenized Americans. We are, I think, much more mature and wise today. Just as we welcome a world of diversity, so we glory in an America of diversity—an America all the richer for the many different and distinctive strands of which it is woven.
    Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)
