Reflection As Revision

 

All through life I have always been told by people that
it's quality not quantity that matters. I cannot even
remember the first time I heard it. If I only had a dollar
for every time I was told that. If ever asked for the
ultimate clichi, I would have to say quality not quantity.
It kind of makes you wonder. If everyone from your parents
to your English teachers is always telling you this, then
hey, it has to be true. Yet I always have had a problem
accepting that. And the more I live my life and the older I
become, the more I am inclined to believe otherwise. I have
come to the conclusion that it is a general rule that what
matters is quantity not quality. All through high school
students would always ask the teacher how many pages a
paper had to be, and the teacher would reply that he or she
was looking for the quality of the paper and was not
interested in the quantity. If that is the case, how come
the students that handed in the very long papers did
better? Coincidence? I think not. If someone offers you a
twenty dollar bill in mint condition or three ten dollar
bills in a very wrinkled condition, which would you take?
Most people would grab the thirty dollars and run. Whoever
does not should probably have their head examined. There
are many things in life that through their antiquity take
on a higher value. In many situations, these items are not
in great condition and newer, better quality counterparts
can be obtained. But the age is what gives it its value.
However, no rule in life is foolproof. This was one is not
either. I have noticed that this rule is applicable to
things that effect the human body directly. Foods are good
example. You don't see people buying fruits and vegetables
that are rotten. Even if they have to by fewer amounts,
they will by the nicer better quality ones. Medication is
another good example. If people are given the choice of a
bottle of 500 capsules of headache medicine that they have
never heard and another bottle of only 250 capsules of a
different brand that is well known In the industry, they
are more likely to go with the better quality yet fewer in
quantity capsules. In conclusion, it is clear see that the
long standing rule that you've learnt since nursery is not
applicable most of the time in real life. Although it might
be a bit shattering, you must come to the realization that
the quantity is more important than quality.
