Helen Keller Quotes

Helen Keller (1880 – 1968) was an American author and lecturer. At 19 months old she contracted an unknown illness which left her both deaf and blind. From the age of 7 she was instructed by Anne Sullivan, who became her governess and later her companion. Sullivan taught Helen to communicate by spelling words into her hand. Later Helen was able to “hear” people’s speech by reading their lips with her hands. Keller became proficient at using braille, and in 1904 at the age of 24, she graduated from Radcliffe, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree. A prolific author, Keller was well-traveled and outspoken in her convictions.
