Motivational Quote- August 27th, 2017

Good morning, yes, I am late but I wanted to share Sunday’s Motivational Quote with you. This week I picked on from Helen Keller to share with you. As a young girl Helen Keller was my idol and this week I will be sharing a book on Helen Keller with Charlie as I am not sure she know who or what Helen Keller did.

So as I was getting ready to head to the library I wanted to share this quote with you:

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Helen Keller

Can you tell me what the quote means to you and why? What do you think your children would think it means and why would they think that? As for me I believe it means each day is a adventure if we allow it to be. If not then it is nothing at all. So make each moment a adventure even if your doing nothing at all.



 

When she was 19 months old, Helen Keller (1880–1968) suffered a severe illness that left her blind and deaf. Not long after, she also became mute. Her tenacious struggle to overcome these handicaps-with the help of her inspired teacher, Anne Sullivan-is one of the great stories of human courage and dedication. In this classic autobiography, first published in 1903, Miss Keller recounts the first 22 years of her life, including the magical moment at the water pump when, recognizing the connection between the word “water” and the cold liquid flowing over her hand, she realized that objects had names. Subsequent experiences were equally noteworthy: her joy at eventually learning to speak, her friendships with Oliver Wendell Holmes, Edward Everett Hale and other notables, her education at Radcliffe (from which she graduated cum laude), and-underlying all-her extraordinary relationship with Miss Sullivan, who showed a remarkable genius for communicating with her eager and quick-to-learn pupil. These and many other aspects of Helen Keller’s life are presented here in clear, straightforward prose full of wonderful descriptions and imagery that would do credit to a sighted writer. Completely devoid of self-pity, yet full of love and compassion for others, this deeply moving memoir offers an unforgettable portrait of one of the outstanding women of the twentieth century.
