K is for Kvalitet and Kvantitet

We often talk about kvalitet – the quality – of life, and the importance of it. In a just world quality would pervade the whole of life. It would be an unquestionable right. For every living creature.

Kvantitet – quantity – lies elsewhere on the scale. How often do we, in our Quaker meetings, bemoan the fact that we are not sufficient in number?

Why do we put quantity before quality? Quality is to do with whether truth is prospering amongst us – not how many bums warm the Meeting House benches.
