Knut Hamsun
“The intelligent poor individual was a much finer observer than the intelligent rich one. The poor individual looks around him at every step, listens suspiciously to every word he hears from the people he meets; thus, every step he takes presents a problem, a task, for his thoughts and feelings. He is alert and sensitive, he is experienced, his soul has been burned...”
Knut Hamsun, Hunger

Erik Pevernagie
“If people in power are artfully pulling a red herring to cover up the cataclysm of their commitments, keeping people on a short leash and driving them playfully into an alley of false promises, we would do well to rely on attentive and considerate observers who send out alarm signals in time to prevent social corrosion. (" High noon. ")”
Erik Pevernagie

Jeanette LeBlanc
“I’m mesmerized by lipstick prints on coffee cups.

By the lines of lips against white pottery. By the color chosen by the woman who sat and sipped and lived life. By the mark she leaves behind. Some people read tea leaves and others can tell your future through the lines on your palm. I think I’d like to read lipstick marks on coffee mugs.

To learn how to differentiate yearning from satiation. To know the curve of a deep-rooted joy or the line of bottomless grief. To be able to say, this deep blue red you chose and how firmly you planted your lips, this speaks of love on the horizon. But, darling, you must be sure to stand in your own truth. That barely-there nude that circles the entire rim? You are exploding into lightness and possibilities beyond what you currently know. The way the gloss only shows when the light hits it and the coffee has sloshed all over the saucer? people need to take the time to see you whole but my god, you’re glorious and messy and wonderful and free. The deep purple bruise almost etched in a single spot and most of the cup left unconsumed? Oh love. Let me hold the depth of your ache. It is true. He’s not coming back. I know you already know this, but do you also know this is not the end? Love. This is not the end.

I imagine that I can know entire stories by these marks on discarded mugs. Imagine that I know something intimate and true of the woman who left them. That I could take those mugs home one day and an entire novel worth of characters would pour out, just like that.”
Jeanette LeBlanc

Anna Lembke
“Practicing mindfulness is something like observing the Milky Way. It demands that we see our thoughts and emotions as separate from us, and yet, simultaneously apart of us. Also the brain can do some pretty weird things, some of which are embarrassing, thus the importance of being without judgement. Reserving judgement is important to the practice of mindfulness because as soon as we start condemning what our brain is doing, eww, why would I be thinking about that, I'm a loser, I'm a freak - We stop being able to observe. Staying in the observer position is essential to getting to know our brains and ourselves in a new way.”
Anna Lembke, Dopamine Nation: Finding Balance in the Age of Indulgence

“By allowing myself to just be, i give myself space to purr in gratitude. I am the observer. I allow myself the time and space I need.”

Alexandre Dumas
“I, who was looking on, an eager and curious spectator - I, who was watching the working of this mournful tragedy - I, who like a wicked angel laughing at the evil men committed protected by secrecy (a secret is easily kept by the rich and powerful), I am in my turn bitten by the serpent whose tortuous course I was watching, and bitten to the heart.”
Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo

Iris Murdoch
“What a mystery a marriage was. What a strange and violent world, the world of matrimony. I was glad to be outside it. The idea of it filled me with a sort of queasy pity.”
Iris Murdoch, The Black Prince

Iris Murdoch
“When dealing with a married couple one can never be neutral. The hot magnetic power of each one's view of the other makes the spectator sway.”
Iris Murdoch, The Black Prince


“The observer determines the outcome. The observer is a participant in the experiment.”

Jasmine Warga
“And time isn't constant. At least our human perception of time. Einstein theorized that the faster we move, the slower we perceive time to move. The clocks will still tick away at the same rate regardless - but it's all about the perception of the observer.

I guess pretty much everything in life is about the perception of the observer.”
Jasmine Warga, My Heart and Other Black Holes

“Only the observe knows what he sees.”

“Your Mind will pull you in a thousand different directions at once, but your Soul knows the Way.
Just breath, just be.
Return to who you really are.”
Affinity Soul

“It is said in some of the science literature on cosmological quantum entanglement (which is fancy terminology for biology) that an observation or a measurement is the result of an observer interacting with a system that it is observing while becoming physically entangled with it. In other words. It's all about companionship really. Self-companionship to be more precise. It's simply not good for one to be alone.”
Wald Wassermann

“Good observers steal your actions & try to do something wider in their brain. That’s why real time moments & speechless communication is the form of honest life.”
Sonal Takalkar
