My favorite quote from this chapter, called “The Field of Work”:
“We are not much, but we are part of a whole and we have the honor of being a part.” (121)
And this is a very specific estimate of how long it would take to study theology that caught my interest:
“If you devote four hours a week to it for the five or six years needed to form the mind, that will be quite enough; afterwards you will only have to keep up what you know.
But beware above everything else of trusting false teachers. Go straight to Thomas of Acquin. Study the Summa…” (111)
