While quanta are typically very-very-very small, last I checked the key 
feature of quantum transitions is not that they're small, but that there 
are no intermediate steps. The object is in state A then it's in state 
B, but it's never halfway (or anywhere) between. Like most quantum stuff 
it's better not to think about that too closely.
