“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow.” – Helen Keller
To me, light means hope and optimism. Positive energy that surrounds our soul and lifts our spirits. There is no other activist, writer and lecturer who has inspired me more when it comes to seeing the light than Helen Keller (1880-1968). As a blind woman whose eyes only saw darkness, the light from her strength, courage and soul out shown her blindness and enabled her to become one of the most inspiring women of her times.
Following are some of my favorite Helen Keller quotes matched against the beauty of the light of the Arizona desert. Hope it inspires you to reflect and see the power of the light to make your heart sing.
“Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy, and you shall form an invincible force against difficulties.” – Helen Keller
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.” – Helen Keller
“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing”. – Helen Keller
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller
“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. – Helen Keller
Let the light within us, guide us and warm our days with sunshine and beauty. Turn your face to the sky and you will not see the shadows.
