"Diversity needs to be recognized for its pure splendor, and ability to affect lives. Diversity is the soul of intrigue and mystery in life." .... Diversity - One Woman's Exploration

"the objective ... is clear: a social and political system that respects and nurtures differences instead of attempting to eliminate them, and one which assures that community actions reflect the wisdom inherent in the assortment of perspectives made available by those differences and not the relative numbers, wealth, or status of the individuals holding the various perspectives." .... Diversity and Deviance: A Biological Perspective
