Happened upon this essay by accident and it really moved me. What an amazing woman miss Keller was, a true humanitarian.

I don't have the words to review this book, to see the world from the perspective of the writer is just extraordinary, for her to express her emotions and try to give the importance of the senses and their absence and how she will use them if she had them and try to transmit this message to everyone, during the three days that she is allowed to use them . ...more

5 stars?

5 stars for less than 40 pages? Indeed!

The shortest & the serenest article or shall I say, words, life & colours, I've ever read yet felt.

I guess we all fail to appreciate or even to look into all the things around us ..The dearest ones outside outlining a beautiful inside, that laying book on your desk that you never take away but never open.

To see, to smell, to breathe & simply to be.

Strong opinion: when I was young I am really shy don’t even talk to peer or anyone else who I don’t know very well. But the thing is you don’t know anyone actually without your family members. So I don’t really have friends at that time, in this way, it’s like a vicious circle, you don’t talk you cannot get any friends, then same thing happened again and again. After I read the whole book, I got my confident back, I began to talk, make friends, do some social activities or something like that. R ...more

This is the first book that I have read after using Kindle. It's wonderful to learn that how a deaf and blind person lives their life, sees the world, and appreciates things that we usually don't. The voyage of life isn't always that smooth, there will be a trough and crest, and even a hurricane at some point. However, finding our own ways to continue our life really depends on our attitude. Helen Keller could appreciate the beauty of the world when she was born, but unfortunately she contracted ...more

Read this in Chinese in attempt to preserve my ability to read Chinese.

Beautifully written. Strong points made. Clear lesson and morals to be learned. E.g. Don't take things for granted.

Spend more time away from the computer & phone. The internet is addicting. Go outside (when there isn't a typhoon or go if you'd like...with caution), appreciate nature, look at the little details of life and enjoy!!!

Taking this to heart and gonna try to spend less time on my computer/phone. The episodes will

I savoured each & every of this beautiful article by a beautiful heart, Helen Keller💓
Usually ppl talk more abt her loving the nature, but it is more than tht. She loves each and every object on the planet⭐

The way she starts the story and drifts into the actual part is just brilliant. She gives flesh to every part of the plot.
U may even think tht she romanticizes everything but no, she does understands pain of different things and expresses them as it is too✍🏼

From this angel's perspective everyth

'Use your eyes as if tomorrow you will be stricken blind.'
I am speechless. This is a must read for all human kind, to read about someone who struggled with her disability and defied the odds, aiming for the stars that she would never see. Keller's journey is inspirational, urging those who have eyes to truly see, to see the beauty, to appreciate the meaning and to savour each moment because tomorrow, when we wake up, who knows what the world will be like? This book touched my heart and it will t

Helen Keller would not be bound by conditions. Rendered deaf and blind at 19 months by scarlet fever, she learned to read (in several languages) and even speak, eventually graduating with honors from Radcliffe College in 1904, where as a student she wrote The Story of My Life. That she accomplished all of this in an age when few women attended college and the disabled were often relegated to the b ...more

“استفيدوا من عيونكم كما لو كنتم مهددين غدا بفقد هذه النعمة ... وإن النصح نفسه ينبغي تطبيقه على سائر الحواس الأخرى: استمعوا إلى الصوت الجميل.. إلى هزيج الطير .. إلى نغمات الموسيقى كما لو كنتم غدا ستصابون بالصمم.. المسوا كل ما يستحق منكم اللمس.. تنمسوا أزيج الزهور وعبير العطور.. تذوقوا لذة كل طعام سائغ لذيذ تتناولونه.. كما لو أنكم ستفقدون غدا حاستي الشم والذوق.. تمتعوا بكل حاسة من حواسكم.. استمتعوا بكل اللذائذ، وانعموا بكل مظاهر الجمال التي تتفتح أمامكم في هذه الدنيا بشتى الأشكال ومختلف الطرائق.. التي تتقدم إليكم بها الطبيعة الخلابة.
إن كل هذه الحواس هبة تستحق الشكر، بيد أن نور البصر يعتبر من أجمل و أروع ما يدخل البهجة إلى النفوس..”
