Famous quotes containing the word observer:

    The possibility of interpretation lies in the identity of the observer with the observed. Each material thing has its celestial side; has its translation, through humanity, into the spiritual and necessary sphere, where it plays a part as indestructible as any other.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    More definite. The sweeping brim of the hat

    If the observer says so....
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
