We often use this word when describing a person:

  • He has many fine qualities as a worker.
  • What sort of qualities does a woman look for in a future husband?
  • His qualities make him well-suited to be a priest.

There's also quality time. This is time that a busy person has available to spend with family and friends. The time is short, but it's of very high quality. Vacations, special events, trips to the museum, and sports activities (among other things) are associated with this concept of "quality time."

  • Bruce makes sure he gets enough quality time with his family.
  • Sarah believes that quality time makes up for all those late evenings at work.
  • A vacation with one's family is prime quality time.
