I know we\'ve all heard of her and know about Helen Keller--but, since I work in a children\'s library, I\'ve taken the opportunity to read a few books about her recently. It is simply amazing what she overcame and how much she didn\'t let her challenges limit what she thought she could do.

Helen Keller was a legend in herself. I\'ve not enjoyed a story as much as the one of her life. Right up there with Sybil. Awesome women!

No star has ever discovered the secrets of A pessimist. I sure no one hase sailed uncharted land. Sailed the uncharted waters and discovered new lands is more likely. As to opening doorways, they are are constructed as an ingress or egress. Anyone might find the passage through enlightning.

It is very true what she says. I have not come across any pessimist who tries to find anything out or try to discover anything because they are sure it would not work work, so they don\'t even try. Very sad.
