Helen Keller quotes :
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart.Helen Keller
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.Helen Keller
When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.Helen Keller
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.Helen Keller
So long as the memory of certain beloved friends lives in my heart, I shall say that life is good.Helen Keller
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.Helen Keller
What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.Helen Keller
Love is like a beautiful flower which I may not touch, but whose fragrance makes the garden a place of delight just the same.Helen Keller
Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold.Helen Keller
