I have depended on books not only for pleasure and for the wisdom they bring to all who read, but also for that knowledge which comes to others through their eyes and their ears.

More from Helen Keller

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

I seldom think about my limitations, and they never make me sad. Perhaps there is just a touch of yearning at times; but it is vague, like a breeze among flowers.

One cannot consent to creep when one has an impulse to soar.

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