truth till the fingernails

Avoda is not the striving that Avoda itself be true; rather, truth itself is an Avoda, that the "fingernails" be true.

Huh?

The "fingernails" are part of man but virtually lifeless. Truth is necessary not only in the "vital" elements of man, his thoughts, emotions, relations with others, etc. but even in the all-but-redundant, the furthest extremities.
