Just 4 days ago.
Everyone can use some inspiration
and Helen Keller was a tremendous source of
inspiration and she shared it with the world
and we are better because of it!
Once I knew only darkness and stillness...
my life was without past or future...
but a little word from the fingers of another
fell into my hand that
clutched at emptiness,
and my heart leaped
to the rapture of living.
Life is either a great
adventure or nothing.
No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars,
or sailed to an uncharted land,
or opened a new doorway
for the human spirit.
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.
One can never consent to creep
when one feels an impulse to soar.
What I am looking for is not
it is in me.
We could never learn to be brave and patient,
if there were only joy in the world.
There is no king who has not
had a slave among his ancestors,
and no slave who has not had
a king among his.
When we do the best that we can,
we never know what miracle
is wrought in our life,
or in the life of another.
The best and most beautiful
things in the world cannot
be seen or even touched-
they must be felt with the heart.
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
something that I can do.
It is a terrible thing to see and have no vision.
Faith is the strength by which
a shattered world shall emerge into the light.
All the world is full of suffering.
It is also full of overcoming.
Your success and happiness lies in you.
Resolve to keep happy,
and your joy and you
shall form an invincible
host against difficulties.
