Quality is a direct experience independent of and prior to intellectual abstractions.
Art is anything you can do well. Anything you can do with Quality.
Now, to take that which has caused us to create the world, and include it within the world we have created, is clearly impossible. That is why Quality cannot be defined. If we do define it we are defining something less than Quality itself.
