What is a quality?


A quality is a non-quantitative attribute


I believe that qualities cannot be quantified. For example, if you look at grass and notice that it's dry, you cannot describe this attribute with a number. Instead you need to use a word that represents the concept 'dry'. Since there are many attributes in reality that do not involve numbers, we have created words to represent these concepts.
