I love Helen Keller and the way she spoke her mind. She could have lived in self-pity but she lived to show us that even with disablities (and we all have at least one) you can be strong and productive. But sometimes it does take a special "teacher" to bring out our best. Being blind and deaf never stopped Helen Keller. Once the knowledge came she never stopped learning. I think that if we stop being open to learning new things we can't grow. Life is like that. Everyday there are new oppertunities to keep learning. We try something new and either we like it or not but in a way it adds to our character. It becomes part of who we are. Here is a quote of Helen Keller's that i really like:
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt within the heart.
