Helen Keller Quotes

I love these Helen Keller quotes. Helen did so much with her life despite the amazing challenges of having so many disabilities. She seemed to know and truly understand beauty and life. I find it so admirable that she was able to lead and be a light to so many people even though she was always dependent on others for so much. It just demonstrates beautifully the reality that we are all both givers and takers in this life. We really need each other. I hope you find these Helen Keller quotes to be inspiring and lovely. I will forever admire Helen Keller.

“Happiness is the final and perfect fruit of obedience to the laws of life.”

“It all comes to this: the simplest way to be happy is to do good.”

“Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it. My optimism, then, does not rest on the absence of evil, but on a glad belief in the preponderance of good and a willing effort always to cooperate with the good, that it may prevail. I try to increase the power God has given me to see the best in everything and every one, and make that Best a part of my life.”

“Tyranny cannot defeat the power of ideas.”

“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.”

“I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.”

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much”

“Keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadows.”

“Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there’s a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see.”

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

“The highest result of education is tolerance”

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

“What I’m looking for is not out there, it is in me.”

“So long as you can sweeten another’s pain, life is not in vain.”

More Helen Keller Quotes:

“Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold.”

“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.”

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”

“I can see, and that is why I can be happy, in what you call the dark, but which to me is golden. I can see a God-made world, not a manmade world.”

“Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in this world.”

“The marvelous richness of human experience would lose something of rewarding joy if there were no limitations to overcome. The hilltop hour would not be half so wonderful if there were no dark valleys to traverse.”

I hope you enjoyed these Helen Keller quotes!
