QUOTES BY HELEN KELLER




"ALTHOUGH THE WORLD IS FULL OF SUFFERING, IT IS ALSO FULL OF THE OVERCOMING OF IT."


"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."


"MANY PERSONS HAVE A WRONG IDEA OF WHAT CONSTITUTES TRUE HAPPINESS. IT IS NOT ATTTAINED THROUGH SELF-GRATIFICATION, BUT THROUGH FIDELITY TO A WORTHY PURPOSE."


"NEVER BEND YOUR HEAD, HOLD IT HIGH, LOOK THE WORLD STRAIGHT IN THE EYE."


"NO PESSIMIST EVER DISCOVERED THE SECRET OF THE STARS, OR SAILED AN UNCHARTED LAND, OR OPENED A DOORWAY FOR THE HUMAN SPIRIT."


"SELF PITY IS OUR WORST ENEMY, AND IF WE YIELD TO IT, WE CAN NEVER DO ANYTHING GOOD IN THE WORLD."
"SCIENCE MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE FOR MOST EVILS; BUT IT HAS FOUND NO CURE FOR THE WORST OF THEM ALL - THE APATHY OF HUMAN BEINGS."

Wow...who would of thought that the books I did read and remembered were of the same.I love the words from Hellen Keller. A lady that really learned things the hard way. But in the end, even she could be taught. God Bless you for your quotes...in her memory.
