Helen Keller – born June 27, 1880

27 Jun

In honor of Helen Keller, here are some her quotes that are my favorites.  Do you have a favorite?

“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow.”

“I seldom think about my limitations, and they never make me sad.  Perhaps there is a touch of yearning at times, but it is vague, like a breeze among flowers.”

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

“No one has a right to consume happiness without producing it.”

“Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other’s welfare, social justice can never be attained.”

“The highest result of education is tolerance.”

“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.”

“Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.”

“It is a terrible thing to see and have no vision.”

    Helen Keller’s birthday was June 27, 1880. She taught the world a lot about deafblindness and how with the proper resources, once can really succeed. She was a fabulous writer and some of her quotes are incredibly inspirational. Read this post on the Vision Through Words blog for some of the great quotes. 🙂
