How lucky we were to have this incredible woman called Helen Keller sharing our planet! Who is better than Helen Keller to write about optimism? Helen Keller became blind when she was just nineteen months old. At the time children who were deaf and blind were simply given up on. But, she went on to prove to this world that anything was possible through her optimistic approach to life! And this book about optimism is from the legend herself. Great Wisdom from Helen Keller from This Book: 1. If happiness is to be so measured, I who cannot hear or see have every reason to sit in a corner with folded hands and weep. 2. Darkness cannot shut me in again. I have had a glimpse of the shore, and can now live by the hope of reaching it. 3. Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it. 4. The world is sown with good; but unless I turn my glad thoughts into practical living and till my own field, I cannot reap a kernel of the good. 5. I never can be argued into hopelessness. Doubt and mistrust are the mere panic of timid imagination, which the steadfast heart will conquer, and the large mind transcend. 6. Work, production, brings life out of chaos, makes the individual a world, an order; and order is optimism. 7. Though the ways in which I can make myself useful are few, the work open to me is endless. The gladdest laborer in the vineyard may be a cripple. 8. The test of all beliefs is their practical effect in life. 9. Thus the optimist believes, attempts, achieves. He stands always in the sunlight. 10. OPTIMISM IS THE FAITH THAT LEADS TO ACHIEVEMENT; NOTHING CAN BE DONE WITHOUT HOPE. Scroll Up and Get Your Copy!
