Helen Keller

Helen Keller

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have often been asked, Do not people bore you? I do not understand quite what that means. I suppose the calls of the stupid and curious, especially of newspaper reporters, are always inopportune. I also dislike people who try to talk down to my understanding. They are like people who when walking with you try to shorten their steps to suit yours; the hypocrisy in both cases is equally exasperating.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Of all the senses, sight must be the most delightful.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Many people have the wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Literature is my Utopia. Here I am not disfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet, gracious discourse of my book-friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Life is an exciting business, and most exciting when it is lived for othersMore Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The marvelous richness of human experience would lose something of rewarding joy if there were no limitations to overcome. The hilltop hour would not be half so wonderful if there were no dark valleys to traverse.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We can do anything we want to do if we stick to it long enough.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
God himself is not secure, having given man dominion over his work.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The welfare of each is bound up in the welfare of all.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Not the senses I have but what I do with them is my kingdom.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I sometimes wonder if the hand is not more sensitive to the beauties of sculpture than the eye. I should think the wonderful rhythmical flow of lines and curves could be more subtly felt than seen. Be this as it may, I know that I can feel the heart-throbs of the ancient Greeks in their marble gods and goddesses.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As selfishness and complaint pervert and cloud the mind, so love with its joy clears and sharpens the vision.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; And because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What a blind person needs is not a teacher but another self.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My darkness has been filled with the light of intelligence, and behold, the outer day-lit world was stumbling and groping in social blindness.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My share of the work may be limited, but the fact that it is work makes it precious.More Helen Keller [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
