Helen Keller's books


Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.

The only blind person at Christmastime is he who has not Christmas in his heart.

Love is like a beautiful flower which I may not touch, but whose fragrance makes the garden a place of delight just the same.

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

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.

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.

Many persons have the wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worth purpose.

Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of overcoming it.

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

Keep your face to the sunshine and you will never see the shadow.
