“Remembrance restores possibility to the past, making what happened incomplete and completing what never was. Remembrance is neither what happened nor what did not happen but, rather, their potentialization, their becoming possible once again.”
Giorgio Agamben, Potentialities: Collected Essays in Philosophy

“One day humanity will play with law just as children play with disused objects, not in order to restore them to their canonical use but to free them from it for good.”
Giorgio Agamben, State of Exception

“To believe that will has power over potentiality, that the passage to actuality is the result of a decision that puts an end to the ambiguity of potentiality (which is always potentiality to do and not to do) — this is the perpetual illusion of morality.”
Giorgio Agamben, Potentialities: Collected Essays in Philosophy
