[41] The consideration of quality under its most general aspect rarely comes up in the courts; I refer to questions such as “whether that is honourable which is generally praised.” With regard to the special aspects of quality, questions sometimes occur about some common term, such as whether sacrilege has been committed when a man has stolen private money from a temple, or about some act with a definite name, when there is no doubt either as to the commission or the nature of the act. Under this heading come all questions about what is honourable, just or expedient.
