Definition of quiddity:
Those who knew anything of the subject are " the so- called men of science," whose three P's were assailed; prestige, pride, and prejudice: this the author tries to effect for himself with three Q's; quibble, quirk, and quiddity.- "A Budget of Paradoxes, Volume II (of II)", Augustus de Morgan.

And I continued: " As the truthful pen, Father, of thy dear brother wrote of it, Who put with thee Rome into the good way, Faith is the substance of the things we hope for, And evidence of those that are not seen; And this appears to me its quiddity."- "Divine-Comedy-Longfellow-s-Translation-Complete", Dante Alighieri.
