Newsletter #3 : 5 Pointers By Helen Keller


1. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security 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 exposure.

2. Self-pity is our worst enemy, and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in the world.

3. People don’t like to think, if one thinks, one must reach conclusions. Conclusions are not always pleasant.

4. What we once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose, For all that we love deeply becomes a part of us.

5. For, after all, everyone who wishes to gain true knowledge must climb the Hill Difficulty alone, and since there is no royal road to the summit, I must zigzag it in my own way. I slip back many times, I fall, I stand still, I run against the edge of hidden obstacles, I lose my temper and find it again and keep it better, I trudge on, I gain a little, I feel encouraged, I get more eager and climb higher and begin to see the widening horizon. Every struggle is a victory. One more effort and I reach the luminous cloud, the blue depths of the sky, the uplands of my desire.


“Don’t let others tell you what you can’t do. Don’t let the limitations of others limit your vision. If you can remove your self-doubt and believe in yourself, you can achieve what you never thought possible.”

― Roy T. Bennett


Good Advice : The only thing to do with good advice is to pass it on. It is never of any use to oneself.
