Quote: “Thomas Aquinas, this great 13th-century theologian, said anybody can know truth in the abstract. He said the real chore is to become a practical person who can bring about goodness in the concrete. I think in some ways this job has had me begin in the concrete. If it’s not relevant, if it’s not going to be part of what people care about, (then) it’s hardly important. If you love a thing so much that you’d love it to be relevant to people, then your job is to learn how to make it relevant. You have to be the one to show the relevance or to establish it.”
