Quotes from Helen Keller’s The Story of My Life

“Literature is my utopia. Here I’m not disfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet gracious discourse of my book friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness.”  ~~ Helen Keller (Book: The Story of My Life)


“Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence and I learn whatever state I maybe in, therein to be content.” ~~ Helen Keller (Book: The Story of My Life)


“A look is often the very soul of what one says.” ~~ Helen Keller (Book: The Story of My Life)


“Sometimes it is true, a sense of isolation enfolds me like a cold mist as I sit alone and wait at life’s shut gate. Beyond there is light and music and sweet companionship; but I may not enter.” ~~ Helen Keller (Book: The Story of My Life)


“I have always accepted other people’s experiences and observations as a matter of course. It never occurred to me that it might be worthwhile to make my own observation and describe the experiences peculiarly my own. Hence forth I’m resolved to be myself, to live my own loge and write my own thoughts when I have any.” ~~ Helen Keller (Book: The Story of My Life)

“The reality of search engine optimization (i.e. how Google decides what’s important) is that the information everyone is reading on the Internet is created by the best marketers.

“Any woman who was foolish enough to believe that a man meant the same as a woman did when he said the words ‘I love you’ or ‘I’ll call you’ needed her head examined – particularly if the former was said either before or during sex and the latter when the man was walking out of the door after it.” ~~ Simone Mondesir (Book: Coming Up For Air)
