Famous quotes containing the words difference and/or potential:

    There can be no difference anywhere that doesn’t make a difference elsewhere—no difference in abstract truth that doesn’t express itself in a difference in concrete fact and in conduct consequent upon that fact, imposed on somebody, somehow, somewhere, and somewhen.
    William James (1842–1910)

    The real community of man ... is the community of those who seek the truth, of the potential knowers.
    Allan Bloom (1930–1992)
