'HELEN KELLER MOMENT'

Hello :D


Quick question, ''If you could meet four people in history and ask them one question; who would you pick and what would you ask?''
..........................................................................

Was asked that a while back and I gave my response in a blog post (16 years old gem), and there, I mentioned that one of the people I would like to meet is Helen Keller.

Who is she?

According to wikipedia 'Helen Adams Keller was 

an American author, political activist, and lecturer. 


She was the first deaf-blind  person to earn  

bachelor of arts degree'.





There's something magical about people who, 

despite their  disabilities, make something out of 

their life...



Honestly....I don't what I would do if I lost my gift 

of  sight and  sound, (or if I was born without 

certain physical abilities)....maybe I  would whine 

and  disturb  my dear mom and  friends.....or  

would  go the route of these great  men and 

women and write, sing  (like  Stevie Wonder or  

Cobhams Asuquo) and have a positive outlook  in 

life and inspire people? 


What will you do? 

I really admire Helen Keller and hope that her 

story spurs you  to keep believing and keep having 

faith and to be an inspiration.

Yup, she's much more than a symbol of courage....



If I were to meet Helen Keller, what will we talk 

about?


Her fears, her motivations and her faith....(those 

and more) :D




Some of my favourite Helen Keller quotes:

  2. Never Give Up,before Giving Your Best in All What You Face.- Helen Keller

  5. Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.Helen Keller

  16. “We could never learn to be brave and patient 

    if there were only joy in the world” ― Helen Keller


  17. “While they were saying it couldn't be done, it was done.” 

  1. “Four things to learn in life: To think clearly 

without hurry or confusion; To love everybody 

sincerely; To act in everything with the highest 

motives; To trust God unhesitatingly.” ― Helen 



No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the 

stars or sailed an uncharted land, or opened a 

new doorway for the human spirit.” ― Helen 




Everything has its wonders, even darkness and 

silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, 

therein to be content” ― Helen Keller




A bend in the road is not the end of the road…

Unless you fail to make the turn.” 






“Be of good cheer. Do not think of today's 

failures, but of the success that may come 

tomorrow. You have set yourselves a difficult task, 

but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will 

find a joy in overcoming obstacles. Remember, no 

effort that we make to attain something beautiful 

is ever lost.” ― Helen Keller
