Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Observation
 
Let Observation, with extensive view,
Survey mankind from China to Peru;
Remark each anxious toil, each eager strife,
And watch the busy scenes of crowded life.
        Dr. Johnson.—Vanity of Human Wishes, Line 1.

For he is but a bastard to the time,
That doth not smack of observation.
        Shakespeare.—King John, Act I. Scene 1. (The Bastard’s soliloquy.)
