With Reasoning by Analogy :

Quantity is to Analysis
Quality is to Analogy .

With Reasoning by Analysis :

Quantity is an enumberated value
Quality is not Quantity .

The realization of Quantity is understood to be an enumberated value which may be objectively counted in a rational manner. That is to say:

If you can not be objective,
and enumerate objects,
and behave in a rational manner,

then forget about Quantity , and go directly to Quality . Why ? Because what is going to follow, if you stay on this path, is purely analytical and there is no room for wither a sense of humor, a happy face, or an emotional response of any kind. Mr. Spock of the USS Enterprise hangs out here.
