Famous quotes containing the word quality:

    So much has already been said about Shakespeare that there doesn’t seem to be anything more to say; yet it is the quality of the spirit that it forever stimulates the spirit.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    Cynicism is cheap—you can buy it at any Monoprix store—it’s built into all poor- quality goods.
    Graham Greene (1904–1991)

    It is not too much to say that next after the passion to learn there is no quality so indispensable to the successful prosecution of science as imagination. Find me a people whose early medicine is not mixed up with magic and incantations, and I will find you a people devoid of all scientific ability.
    Charles Sanders Peirce (1839–1914)
