Quotable Sunday #7 Helen Keller

Yay! Another Sunday...another round of Quotable Sunday. Check in at A Daily Dose of Toni--make the rounds, read the quotes and of course--leave comments :) It's a lot of fun. If you are a quote fanatic, please visit my main website. I have been doing a monthly quote page for years (maybe a decade...LOL!!) It is NOT indexed or in ANY way organized...SOMEDAY!!
Anyway, my theme for this week is Helen Keller. Along with Bl. Mother Teresa, she is one of my favorite sources for quotes. I just think that Helen Keller is such a strong woman--she overcame so much-and her quotes always make me feel very inspired or encouraged. Hope something touches your heart as well. Have a wonderful Sunday.


All the world is full of suffering. It is also full of overcoming.

Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.

The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.

Love is like a beautiful flower which I may not touch, but whose fragrance makes the garden a place of delight just the same.

One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.

Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.

The Helen Keller quote, The Most Beautiful Things In The World cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart, is one of my favorites. I have it on my bathroom wall.
