The quote you are asking about refers to an idea of contrast. If the only grade you could get in school was an "A" and everyone got the same grade, then suddenly there is no such thing as a "good grade" or a "bad grade".
In order for good and bad to exist, we need more than a single option. We need comparative or contrasting options.
Contrast is at the heart of this quote.
