Famous quotes containing the word quality:

    If behind the erratic gunfire of the press the author felt that there was another kind of criticism, the opinion of people reading for the love of reading, slowly and unprofessionally, and judging with great sympathy and yet with great severity, might this not improve the quality of his work? And if by our means books were to become stronger, richer, and more varied, that would be an end worth reaching.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    A person must have a good memory to keep the promises he has made. A person must have a strong imagination to be able to have pity. So closely is morality tied to the quality of the intellect.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    The irregular and intimate quality of things made entirely by the human hand.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)
