Helen Keller - My inspiration.
"Never bend your head. Hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye."
Helen Keller, my greatest inspiration. Being deaf and blind from her birth, she showed the world how a person can be a winner in spite of great obstacles. I wish i can write about her, but since am not such good author to catch up her "legendary life" in a single page, i have given it as a short video of her life. I have also given some of her inspirational quotes which reflects the thinking of the great mind.
Quotes of Helen Keller:
Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also 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.
I do not want the peace which passeth understanding, I want the understanding which bringeth peace.
Many persons have the wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.
Never bend your head. Hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye.**
People do not like to think. If one thinks, one must reach conclusions. Conclusions are not always pleasant.**
Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything good in the world.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt within the heart.**
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 which has been opened for us.**
Is there anything worse than being blind? Yes, a man with sight and no vision.
I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship.
I am only one, still I am one. I can not do everything, still I can do something. I will not refuse to do the something I can do.
