Making barren places fruitful with kindness

When we consider that Helen Keller was blind and deaf, her words on how to make the most of life are reminders to  all of us  to look beyond the difficulties that come our way each day. Her focus was on what she could do for others and on not what the thoughts in her mind or others’ minds said she could not do.

Join the great company of those who make the barren places of life fruitful with kindness.  Your success and happiness lie within you.  External conditions are the accidents of life, its outer wrappings.  The great, enduring realities are love and service.  Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow.  Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulty.

Helen Keller
