    The only thing possibly wrong with the quote is the Mahatma's belief that people are essentially good. Unfortunately, this could also imply that the evil should also strive to do their utmost to destroy the world. It's been said the civilization is a race between those who build and those who destroy. I know I'm a pessimist, but it looks to me like those who destroy are winning.

    Nothing that pontificating fraud and con-man said was of depth or meaning.

    What we "do" is nothing compared to the capacity we have for doing more.  We would solve much of what is wrong with the world if we would use the capabilities we have; our potential is wasted.

    I think it means if realize our true potential - we will be able to end crime and violence since our true potential is always altruistic and good
