A Quote by Newton N. Minow on observation and television

I invite you to sit down in front of your television set when your station goes on the air . . . and keep your eyes glued to that set until the station signs off. I can assure you that you will observe a great wasteland.

Newton N. Minow

A Quote by Ned B. Roueche on observation

There are others who watch us, observe our examples and say, "I like what I see; how can I become a part of it?"

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on friendship, god, individuality, and observation

Brigham Young observed, "Man's machinery makes things alike" (JD 9:370), while God gives to seemingly like individuals pleasing differences. Secularism is no friend of righteous individuality.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on endurance, experience, god, life, needs, observation, past, purpose, soul, time, trying, and value

There are also flat periods in life which may well be the periods during which-before new lessons come- the past lessons of life are allowed to seep, quietly and deeply, into the marrow of the soul. These outwardly flat periods, when enduring well may not seem very purposeful,, are probably the times when needed attitudinal alignments are quietly occurring. Trying to observe the slow shift from self-centeredness to empathy is like trying to watch grass grow. An experience is thus not only endured but also absorbed and perused, almost unconsciously, for its value. Such a process takes time. Therefore it is we, not God, who need more time.

Neal Maxwell (1926 -)

A Quote by Napoleon Hill on beginning, ideas, imagination, observation, planning, reality, and thought

First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination.

A Quote by Milton R. Hunter on adultery, crime, evil, facts, gifts, god, jesus, laughter, love, lust, money, murder, observation, sorrow, and world

You know, I have never read in the scriptures where Jesus said, "For, behold, a million dollars is the greatest gift of God." I observe by your smiles and laughter that you haven't either. Nor have I read wherein the Savior said, "He who hath a million dollars is rich indeed." It does not sound like scripture. I did read in the scriptures that the love for money or the lust for money is the root of all evil, and that certainly is very true. Covetousness for money is evil and the final end is sorrow. In fact, covetousness in all its forms is the basis of all sin-adultery, murder, stealing, embezzlement, and all the various types of crime that we find in the world.

A Quote by Maria Montessori on desires, lies, observation, teachers, and understanding

The teacher must derive not only the capacity, but the desire, to observe natural phenomena. The teacher must understand and feel her position of observer: the activity must lie in the phenomenon.
