Posted by on Jan 8, 2018 in Blog | 1 comment

The story of Helen Keller (1880-1968), the first blind and deaf person to be awarded a Bachelor of Arts degree, has long surprised and delighted millions. Left blind and deaf after a disease contracted when she was 19 months old, Keller became a prolific author, human rights activist and an international inspiration.

Here are some of her oft cited insights…

  • The only thing worse than being blind is having sight with no vision. Helen Keller
  • Kindness is a language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see. Helen Keller
  • The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart. Helen Keller
  • There are no shortcuts to any place worth going. Helen Keller

As always, nice chatting…
