More wisdom is latent in things as they are than in all the words men use.
— Antoine de Saint-Exupery

To photograph truthfully and effectively is to see beneath the surfaces and record the qualities of nature and humanity which live or are latent in all things.
Ansel Adams latent quote

No matter what his position or experience in life, there is in everyone more latent than developed ability; far more unused than used power.
— James Cash Penney

If you will call your troubles experiences, and remember that every experience develops some latent force within you, you will grow vigorous and happy, however adverse your circumstances may seem to be.
— John R. Miller

I always get back to the question, is it really necessary that men should consume so much of their bodily and mental energies in the machinery of civilized life? The world seems to me to do much of its toil for that which is not in any sense bread. Again, does not the latent feeling that much of their striving is to no purpose tend to infuse large quantities of sham into men's work?
— latent quotation by William Allingham
