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

~Helen Keller

 

Helen Keller was deaf and blind from infancy. But she never lost the battle and she became the first deaf-blind person to graduate from college. She will remain alive forever, as inspiration to the blinds of the world.

“Perhaps it will seem to you that the sunshine is brighter and that everything has a new charm. At least, I believe this is always the result of a deep love, and it is a beautiful thing. And I believe people who think love prevents one from thinking clearly are wrong ; for then one thinks very clearly and is more active than before. And love is something eternal – the aspect may change, but not the essence. There is the same difference in a person before and after he is in love as there is in an unlit lamp and one that is burning.”

~ Vincent van Gogh
