“Quality” – February’s Watchword

Posted on: February 8, 2011

If you’re like me, you juggle what you must afford, what you want to afford and what you would like to afford. Bills come first…; home decor may be shuffled towards the bottom. But what we all look for is the quality of items that we purchase.

Quality” is an interesting word.

There’s the phrase “Quality of Life,” with all the connotations that involves for those of us sharing this planet. “Star Quality” is another phrase heard quite often, sometimes a little too often. One phrase that has rather gone out of fashion is a “Man or Woman of Quality“. “Quality Time” is a phrase that came into its own once both mother and father worked outside the home. “Quality Assurance” and “Quality Control” are two business-related phrases full of meaning and replete with newspaper stories. “Quality” can refer to a musical piece, or to how the piece is played by a given soloist, encompassing tone, phrasing, distinctiveness.

Looking up the word “Quality” in a dictionary, I spot the definition “character with respect to fineness, or grade of excellence”, i.e., in food or products.

Quality” is an attribute (another fine word!), a characteristic – innate or acquired.

There’s also — today, especially — the “quality” of the weather. After yet more snow overnight, I opened the shade beside my desk to see this bonanza of ice crystals feathering the window! As my office mate observed: People pay to have that kind of “window painting” done.

Looks just like lace, climbing upwards from the white blanketed earth…
