Helen Keller

 "Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow...  Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost.  Sometime, somewhere, we shall find that which we seek."
~Helen Keller     

"People do not like to think. If one thinks, one must reach conclusions. Conclusions are not always pleasant."
~Helen Keller  
"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved."   ~Helen Keller

 "I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker." ~Helen Keller

"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us."  ~Helen Keller

In parting, I leave you with a 2 & 1/2 min. 1930's Newsreel embedded below:
