Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.—Helen Keller
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.—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.
Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.—Helen Keller
