Did you know that "The School for Scandal" is from around the 1700s and that early in the play the word "quantum" is used? Perhaps it was derived from standard Latin but it was surprising for me.
"Quantum" is derived from Latin, and means "one's share or portion," and has been in use since the 1600s. "Quantum" and "quantity" share the same root.
