The old saying goes, "Quality over quantity." Instead of having a lot of something that's only just okay, it's better to have one thing of that's been made really well. Sure, having one hand-crafted table might be better than having twenty IKEA tables, but sometimes it's not always about the quality. Occasionally it does help to have more of one thing than simply one really nice thing.


Reddit user, u/powerspyin1, wanted to know when more actually is better when they asked:

When is Quantity more important than Quality?

Make It Mountain Sized

Fried rice from that cheap chinese place down the road.

Air.

Trapped under water I'd rather have an unlimited supply of the worst China class smog than 15 minutes of Fiji Air.

Money Is The True King

Well I'll take a box of old dirty quarters over a handful of shiny ones.

As Long As It Fills You

When you're poor, food.

I'd rather have a kitchen full of semi healthy stuff that will last than a few healthy items

So Long As They Both Do The Same Job

I'd say when quality becomes superfluous.

If you were building a house, you could spend tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars on custom tooled boron carbide meme nails, that will literally shred steel before they so much as scratch. Or you could spend only a few hundred (at the most) on regular carpenters nails. They will both do the same job, to the level of expectations that you would require, but one choice would be significantly cheaper, in a way quantity can be it's own quality.

The Quality Of Water Doesn't Matter So Much When You're Burning Down

When you need water to put out a fire.

A Little Better Every Day

In practice. For example: spending 100 days doing bad drawings will teach you more about drawing than 100 days trying to perfect one piece.

Pens.

No matter the quality, you will always lose them.

Yep. I'm writing this into my will. Thank you. Some day my family will laugh at my funeral and it will be my last goofy thing.

Edit: all you bloody americans stop trying to work my single word response to a question into your corrupt and frankly proposterous election system or whatever the hell you guys have over there. No country has quality voters as a majority and you need to majority to win elections. MAJORITY OF THE VOTES ARE IMPORTANT AS THE QUESTION ASKED ABOUT A SCENARIO WHERE QUANTITY WAS IMPORTANT. sheesh you guys and your electoral whatnots i do not give a single bold headed f-ck.

We aren't perfect. There's plenty of things in our pasts that we look back and cringe at.

That being said, sometimes those cringe moments go far past cringe. Sometimes they get to the point of no return awfulness because that's where our human nature took us in this moment.

I don't miss high school or the people in it. People who seem to have peaked in high school also weird me out. How? Why? I can definitely tell you that life got much more interesting the older I got (my 20s were way more fun than any of my time in high school). If you were to ask me if I have any regrets, I suppose I would say that I wish I had been more assertive and stood up for myself more. Depression has a way of complicating goals like that, though. Let me tell you: It feels nice to be so much healthier than I was then.

When we are on the outside looking in, it can feel so obvious that a relationship is doomed.

When we offer advice to friends, family, or people oversharing at a party, the correct next move often seems wildly obvious: get out of that relationship.

Some people don't take breakups very well. And those that don't can sometimes engage in behavior that others might view as bothersome, unsettling, even toxic.

Others engage in abusive behavior during the relationship, a major red flag that some people might not take seriously until it's too late.
