Famous quotes containing the words potential and/or energy:

    The planet on which we live is poorly organized, many areas are overpopulated, others are reserved for a few, technology’s potential is only in part realized, and most people are starving.
    Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921–1990)

    All my energy and attention were devoted to trying to help her solve her problems. Unfortunately I didn’t have much success.
    Arthur Miller (b. 1915)
