If any one can relate to this quote, it would surely be Helen Keller.

She was born in Alabama USA in 1880 and at the age of 19 months she fell ill and lost both her sight and hearing.

Imagine facing the world totally deaf and blind – unable to relate to anything or anyone around you by sound or sight. Helen must have felt locked away and lost to the world, until the teacher her parents hired for her, Anne Sullivan, began tracing the letters of the alphabet on her hand. In this way, Helen learned how to communicate and the doors to the world were flung open for her.

Helen went on to become a college graduate, author, public speaker and political activist. She has no doubt inspired millions the world over with the amazing story of her determination.

Indeed, who are we to live ordinary lives?

This amazing quote is available to you from the Poetic Pieces Collection as either ring R-1, pendant P-1 or key ring, KC-1. Request a full Poetic Pieces catalogue here.

"Buying from Blue Turtles is always a pleasure - opening all those drawers at the Gift Fair to see the hidden treasures inside – because you know you’ll only see the good stuff. Each stone is chosen aesthetically, set with heavy silver and finished beautifully... you don’t get bumpy edges, join marks that haven’t been polished out, left over tarnished sections or stones hanging out the back of a setting. The attention to detail is obvious from the moment you look at any piece. It’s well priced, especially for the quality of the stones and the amount of silver used. You get prompt and efficient service, always with a smile!"
