Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.

Helen Keller

Your prison cell
an abyss

When barred
shed light

Dare to venture
The great escape

The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight but no vision.

Helen Keller

What the eye
may see
For many
That sight
Will be
beyond ‘me’

In 1904, Helen become the first person who was deaf and blind to earn a college degree.

By degree

Of when is then
And not granted
But taken

Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it

Helen Keller

What nature of cause
A matter of attitude
Perceive suffering as conquerable
Overcome with gratitude

Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.

Helen Keller

A clear sense of state
Within and around
Walking through the darkness
With feet on the ground

Helen Keller Day

Helen Adams Keller was an American author, disability rights advocate, political activist and lecturer. Born in West Tuscumbia, Alabama, she lost her sight and her hearing after a bout of illness at the age of 19 months.

Helen Keller Day is a commemorative holiday to celebrate the birth of Helen Keller, observed on June 27 annually. The holiday observance was created by presidential proclamation in 2006, as well as by international organizations, particularly those helping the blind and the deaf.

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much

  1. Wow! Miss Keller gained a lot of wisdom from the adversity she had endure. This quote in particular stood out to me:
    “Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.”

    1. I honestly don’t know how she did it and I just read all about it.
      It was a great deal of trouble narrowing it down to these quotes. That particular one was the first I chose.

  2. Love the title in Braille! Helen Keller Day indeed! She was among the top of the top since only 19% of all women attended college in 1900 and only a fraction of those earned degrees other than their Mrs.!!

    1. Thanks! Had to give the post a little twist.
      That’s a fascinating fact! Also a disappointing one. But one that further compounds the extreme effort and talent of the one and only Helen Keller!
