Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan--What a wise woman...and yet without the help of Anne Sullivan, no one would've known. “I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.” ― Helen Keller Annie Sullivan, Hellen Keller, Small Task, Anne Sullivan, Wise Woman, Beautiful People, Inspiration People, Historical People, Helen Keller

Helen Keller--and I never really had an image of her in mind. An example that "you can do anything you put your mind to" and that our limitations are as large or as small as we think them to be.
Helen Adams Keller was not born blind and deaf; it was not until she was nineteen months old that she contracted an illness described by doctors as “an acute congestion of the stomach and the brain,” which could possibly have been scarlet fever or meningitis. The illness did not last for a particularly long time, but it left her deaf and blind.
Helen Keller overcame so much. I wish I could have peeked inside her head when she first broke out of her dark, quiet world.
