How to use potency in a sentence?

  1. Jean Moon:

    We wouldn’t know for sure what medicine [Cosby] saved from the 1970s, but quite a potency would still be there, i think most experts agree that most medications retain quite a bit of potency over time. Now 20 years, I don’t know.

  2. Mahatma Gandhi:

    Had we adopted non-violence as the weapon of the strong, because we realised that it was more effective than any other weapon, in fact the mightiest force in the world, we would have made use of its full potency and not have discarded it as soon as the fight against the British was over or we were in a position to wield conventional weapons. But as I have already said, we adopted it out of our helplessness. If we had the atom bomb, we would have used it against the British.

  3. Jeremy Unruh:

    Trying to limit the potency really doesnt fix the problem because all you do is you make a bigger piece with more in it, even ifthe potency is reduced,that can be gamed.

  4. Waitress Giorgia Ponturo:

    This bar dates back to 1947, it used to be a brothel and gay hotspot, then the owner decided to adopt the phallus motif, which was an ancient Greek symbol of sexual potency and fertility, to reaffirm the virility of Sicilian men. It also brings good luck.

  5. Michael Pfadenhauer:

    There is no e-sound. It has to be invented. The sound transports the emotions of a vehicle. It gives you feedback about the potency and capability of the car, at low speeds and revs it needs to enable comfortable driving. At higher speeds in sports mode, a more intense acoustic feedback is needed to make customers experience the potential of the vehicle.
