If You Are Down.....

If you are ever down, feeling sorry for yourself just remember Helen Keller. She went from a wild child who could not see or hear to inspiring those who thought they need no inspiration. Helen Keller is truly an awesome woman and deserves props for all she has done. One of my all time favorite quotes is from her - "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt within the heart. "

This is what else she had to say......

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

"Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings."

"One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar."

"We could never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world."

"Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything good in the world."

"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved."

"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature.... Life is either a daring adventure or nothing."

"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."

"No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars or sailed an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit."

"There is no king who has not had a slave among his ancestors, and no slave who has not had a king among his."

"I do not want the peace which passeth understanding, I want the understanding which bringeth peace."

"Never bend your head. Hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye."

"Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow."

Helen Keller (1880 - 1968)

Have An AWESOME Day All :O)
