Helen Adams Keller (June 27, 1880 - June 1, 1968) was an American author, political activist, and lecturer. She was the first deafblind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. The story of how Keller's teacher, Anne Sullivan, broke through the isolation imposed by a near complete lack of language, allowing the girl to blossom as she learned to communicate, has become widely known through the dramatic depictions of the play and film The Miracle Worker. - Wikipedia

                Quote 6021by Anonymous on 12/09/2011

                Many persons have the wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.

                  People do not like to think. If one thinks, one must reach conclusions. Conclusions are not always pleasant.

                    When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.

                      No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars or sailed an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit.

                        Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature.... Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.

                            To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug.

                              Literature is my Utopia. Here I am not disenfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet, gracious discourses of my book friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness.

                                It is wonderful how much time good people spend fighting the devil. If they would only expend the same amount of energy loving their fellow men, the devil would die in his own tracks of ennui.

                                  It's wonderful to climb the liquid mountains of the sky. Behind me and before me is God and I have no fears.

                                    Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.

                                        Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything good in the world.
