“Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not.” —Isaiah 42:20
“Another seemingly simple and perhaps underappreciated spiritual gift—the capacity of being “quick to observe”—is vitally important for you and for me in the world in which we do now and will yet live.” —David A. Bednar
