Observation quotes

Rudolf Arnheim
All perceiving is also thinking, all reasoning is also intuition, all observation is also invention.

John Tillotson
They who are in the highest places, and have the most power, have the least liberty, because they are the most observed

Alexander Pope
One who is too wise an observer of the business of others, like one who is too curious in observing the labor of bees, will often be stung for his curiosity.

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Thinking is more interesting than knowing, but less interesting than looking

He doesn't watch, he notices.

A. R. Orage
The observation of others is coloured by our inability to observe ourselves impartially. We can never be impartial about anything until we can be impartial about our own organism.

Louis Pasteur
In the fields of observation chance favors only the prepared mind.

Charles Sanders Pierce
Looking out of my window this lovely spring morning I see an azalea in full bloom. No, no! I do not see that though that is the only way I can describe what I see. That is a proposition, a sentence, a fact but what I perceive is not proposition, sentence, fact, but only an image which I make intelligible in part by means of a statement of fact. This statement is abstract but what I see is concrete.
