It is not blindness or deafness that bring me my darkest hours — it is the acute disappointment in not being able to speak normally. Longingly, I think how much more good I might have done if I had only acquired natural speech. But out of this sorrowful experience I understand more fully all human strivings, thwarted ambitions, and the

infinite capacity of hope.

helen keller: security is mostly a superstition. it does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. avoiding danger is not safer in the long run than outright exposure. life is either a daring adventure, or nothing
