And one more thing about this word.
Even if I didn't think it hurt the way we view a specific person, after talking with Samantha about it, we realized that it says something about everyone else. If you say that one person is "quality" and thus attribute worth to them in that way, then you also, implied in the statement, differentiate their worth from another person's worth. I'd say everyone has worth, and thus everyone is "quality", but then the word becomes useless if everyone can be labeled as such. Interesting. Its just an interesting word choice.
