Mid Week Quote: Helen Keller


My chosen quote for today is by Helen Keller (1880-1968).

At nineteen months of age Keller became deaf and blind but with aid of her teacher and family she learned to read, write and speak. At the age of twenty-four, she became the first deaf and blind person to receive a bachelor’s degree. Keller wrote a dozen books and many articles, she was also a world renowned public speaker, activist and advocate for people with disabilities.

“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.” 

Helen Keller
