Quoteworthy: Helen Keller on Finding Purpose


In 1882, Helen Keller was struck with an illness which left her blind and deaf but her strong-will allowed her to lead a remarkable life–one dedicated to improving the world.

Aside from helping children who suffered the same deficiencies, Keller praised the principles of socialism and was very politically active. She was honored in the Hall of Fame for Leaders and Legends of the Blindness field and went down in history as “America’s First Lady of Courage.”

“True happiness is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.” – Helen Keller
