This quote by Helen Keller (n. 1880) is very indicative of the kind of life she lived. Before the age of two, she became both blind and deaf. That could have been enough for her to give up on all the hopes and aspirations she had for her life. It may have been tempting or a lot easier to just sit back and let her life unfold before her. But that wasn’t the case. She went on to not only learn to communicate through a unique form of sign language but also author several books and graduate from Harvard University, becoming the first deaf-blind person to earn a Bachelors’s degree. With literally no security of sight and sound, she had to be daring to venture into the unknown. This quote inspires us to do the same. We must dare to dream and dare to take chances as best as we can; because the alternative means coasting through life without ever challenging ourselves.
