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:
Make It Mountain Sized
Fried rice from that cheap chinese place down the road.
Kind Of Obvious, But Worth SayingGiphy
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 They're Mouths Are Full
A kids pizza party.
Those little sh-ts wouldn't know good pizza anwyays...
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.
Never Knew How Much I Need This
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.
