Beauty in Differences

Would this garden be lovelier if the flowers were all the same?
 I think not. 
Does that not ring true for people as well?

Let everyone be himself, and not try to be someone else. 
God, who looked on the world He had made and said it was all good, made each of us to be just what our own gifts and faculties fit us to be.  Be that and do that and so be contented.
Reverence, also, each other's gifts; do not quarrel with me because I am not you, and I will do the same.  God made your brother as well as yourself. ...
Let us not torment each other because we are not all alike, but believe that God knew best what He was doing in making us so different.  So will the best harmony come out of seeming discords, the best affection out of differences, the best life out of struggle, and the best work will be done when each does his own work, and lets everyone else do and be what God made him for.  ~ James Freeman Clarke
