Helen Keller Quotes...

Helen Keller Quotes

"Never bend your head. Always hold it high.
Look the world right in the eye."

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

"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement.
Nothing can be done without hope and confidence."

"Life is an exciting business,
and most exciting when it is lived for others."

"True happiness...
is not attained through self-gratification,
but through fidelity to a worthy purpose."

"We would never learn to be brave and patient if
there were only joy in the world."

"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."

“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.”

"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."

"What we have once enjoyed we can never lose.
All that we love deeply becomes a part of us."

  2. Hi Val,
    I'm back (well, trying)! Anyway, as always you post something close to my heart. I adore HK's quotes. There's another one about that which can be felt, vs. seen.
    Anyway, thanks again..and I hope to see ya around more often!

  3. "Life is an exciting business." Great quote. I was just thinking that this morning. People are always looking for ways to entertain themselves while life itself is the most entertaining actvity of all.
