12 POWERFUL Helen Keller Quotes

Helen Keller is one of my favorite historical figures of all time. Her story is an inspiration to us all.  Not only has she inspired us through her life, but also through her words.  Helen Keller quotes are some of the most referenced quotes in the world.

Though she was born with all of her senses, as a toddler an illness robbed her of both the sense of sight and hearing.  Despite these massive adversities, Keller went on to graduate from college, become an author and a political activist.  She was even one of the co-founders of the ACLU.

As such, Helen Keller’s story is a powerful reminder that we each have the ability to tap into our personal greatness, and we each have much to teach.

Here a few unforgettable and powerful Helen Keller quotes.  Enjoy!

Helen Keller Quotes

  1. “Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.”
  2. “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.”
  3. “The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.”
  4. “Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.”
  5. “Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”
  6. “Life is either a great adventure or nothing.”
  7. “Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold.”
  8. “Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.”
  9. “The highest result of education is tolerance.”
  10. “Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye.”
  11. “What I am looking for is not out there, it is in me.”
  12. “One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.”

I hope you find these Helen Keller quotes as uplifting as I do.  Just as Keller did, we all have the ability to tap into our personal power, despite any obstacle we are presented with.

    Hi Andrea,

    I’ll pick 3 and 8. Yes indeed the most beautiful things are only felt and of course faith always takes us to the level being optimistic it enables us to tap in to the belief factor and strengthen it..helps us showcasing the trust that we have in the Universe/God/Angels.. Loads of take away from the quotes.
