Helen Keller was born deaf and blind but powered her way through life to become an impactful speaker, author, and activist. Let’s look at some life lessons we can learn from her.
“Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.”
“The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight but no vision.”
“A happy life consists not in the absence, but in the mastery of hardships.”
“Happiness is the final and perfect fruit of obedience to the laws of life.”
“You don’t love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear.”
“It all comes to this: the simplest way to be happy is to do good.”
“When you lose your vision, you lose contact with things. When you lose your hearing, you lose contact with people.”
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.”
“People don’t like to think, if one thinks, one must reach conclusions. Conclusions are not always pleasant.
