    Quanity prevails over quality

    Hello,

    Is the sentence below correct and does it sound natural?

    "Quantity prevails over quality."

    Thank you very much.

    Re: Quanity prevails over quality

    Grammatically it's correct. The more natural expression you sometimes hear is "Quality over quantity" (or vice versa).

    Of course, neither of those expressions are grammatical sentences.

    I think replacing 'prevails over' with something like 'beats' or 'trumps' would sound a bit more natural.
