In case you’re stuck – distinctions can come to save the day.
What are distinctions?
A great way to define a distinction is that it is a a property that sets it different from anything else that’s alike. A lady of distinction is a lady who’s not like everyone else somehow, better, more, above them.
A different way to examine distinctions is that it is a concept or occurrence or maybe even abstraction. (abstraction definition: a general quality or characteristic, apart from concrete realities, specific objects, or actual instances. )
I am going to speak about this latter manner of looking, where distinction is a concept.
