Definition of diffusive:
The composition is as confused as it is diffusive; he tried to embody the whole teaching of the Bible, but becoming overwhelmed with the vastness of his subject, fell short even of the excellence of his own previous works.- "Fra Bartolommeo", Leader Scott (Re-Edited By Horace Shipp And Flora Kendrick).
The only drawback is our comparative ignorance, and our inability to discern the precise character of the diffusive currents in every case; a radical imperfection in the science of mind as constituted at present.- "Essays: Scientific, Political, & Speculative, Vol. I", Herbert Spencer.
- "William Hickling Prescott", Harry Thurston Peck.
