A prolific author, highly successful political activist and a lecturer; words fall short to describe the personality of Helen Keller. A person who was not blessed with the gift of vision and hearing, Helen surpassed all odds to obtain Bachelor of Arts degree. Her life is an epitome of perseverance and inner strength. Helen was extremely fond of nature and it is very evident in all her works. Helen’s quotes motivate us to be optimistic in life and encourage us to do every small work with equal passion and zeal.
"True happiness is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose."
"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing"
"Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood"
"What a blind person needs is not a teacher but another self"
"Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow."
"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart."
To mark achievements of Helen Keller, Helen’s birthplace in Alabama is transformed into a museum. Every year, her birthday on June 27 is celebrated as Helen Keller day in the state of Pennsylvania. The story of Helen Keller’s life is an example showing that even the impossible challenges can be overcome to achieve success.
