English term or phrase: Perhaps the most distinctive feature of being human is the capacity to create
Perhaps the most distinctive feature of being human is the capacity to create and use language and other symbolic forms.

It's hard to imagine how any culture could exist without language. In fact, all fundamental aspects of any culture would be virtually impossible without it.

It has always seemed to me that the greatest honour which can come to a person is to have a unique love and desire to learn and preserve his own culture and tradition.
