"I take happiness very seriously. It is a creed, a philosophy and an objective."
—Helen Keller, "Happiness," School Bank News, May 1935
Image: photo of Helen Keller, circa 1950, at her home in Arcan Ridge, CT. She is seated, wearing a short-sleeved, printed dress with a sheltie dog on her lap. Helen's left hand rests on an open braille book, and her face is turned towards the window. Sunlight is streaming in on her face.
