Captured Moments with Helen Keller

Captured Moments with Helen Keller

Helen Keller, born deaf and blind in June 27, 1880,  was a frustrated, angry, wild child of six when teacher Ann Sullivan stepped into her life.  Ann finally broke through Helen's prison of silence during an infamous encounter at a water pump . She dedicated her life to this child and young woman, watching as she grew into a fascinating, influeuntial person. Helen's quotations reveal an intelligent, strong, positive woman who still is an inspiration to many. 

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

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart. "

"Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light."

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