Inspirational Wisdom

"Blindness isolates us from things, but deafness isolates us from people." ~ Helen Keller

"But people who think they can project themselves into deafness are mistaken because you can't. And I'm not talking about imagining what a deaf person's whole life is like I even mean just realizing what it is like for an instant." ~ Richard Masur
