DISTINCTION
[ Also see Character Fame Glory Greatness Honor Individuality Mediocrity Nobility Originality Rank Singularity ]

No people is fully civilized where a distinction is drawn between stealing an office and stealing a purse.
      - Theodore Roosevelt

Distinction, with a broad and powerful fan, puffing at all, winnows the light away.
      - William Shakespeare

All that causes one man to differ from another is a very slight thing. What is it that is the origin of beauty or ugliness, health or weakness, ability or stupidity? A slight difference in the organs, a little more or a little less bile. Yet this more or less is of infinite importance to men; and when they think otherwise they are mistaken.
      - Luc de Clapier de Vauvanargues

All our distinctions ire accidental; beauty and deformity, though personal qualities, are neither entitled to praise nor censure; yet it so happens that they color our opinion of those qualities to which mankind have attached responsibility.
      - Johann Georg von Zimmermann
