“To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug.”

-Helen Keller

    I have read a great deal about her life. Her quotes portray the essence of an adventurous spirit who had to navigate such challenging terrain in so many ways…

    With her increased sense of touch and smell, the fresh scent of pine needles and the softness of grass would have been a delight for Helen. How fortunate we are to be able to add the sense of sight.
