A Quote by Richard David Bach on death, happiness, jobs, judgment, observation, unhappiness, and the observer

Part of us is always the observer, and no matter what, it observes. It watches us. It does not care if we are happy or unhappy, if we are sick or well, if we live or die. Its only job is to sit there on our shoulder and pass judgment on whether we are worthwhile human beings.

Richard Bach (1936 -)
