Helen Keller

Helen Keller (June 27, 1880-1968) overcame being both deaf and blind
to become a famous author, lecturer, and activist
for women's suffrage, workers' rights, and ending war.

if my happiness is so deep that it is a faith,
so thoughtful that it becomes a philosophy of life.
If, in short, I am an optimist,
my testimony to the creed of optimism is worth hearing.

Your success and happiness lies in you.
Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.
