Is this a phrase that would correspond to: "I choose quality over quantity" or that would be "Sceglio la qualità su la quantità". Just wondering is there any similarity in usage and what is more common.

I was also interested by this. Is it typical to turn the phrase around relative to the English where we would always stress the quality by saying "quality before quantity"?

I wrote "I place...." Not sure why it wasn't accepted.

They didn't think of it. It is a trifle idiomatic, though the usual English version is "Quality before quantity"
