The following is an excerpt from the The Story of my Life by Helen Keller
Even in the days before my teacher came, I used to feel along the square stiff boxwood hedges, and, guided by the sense of smell, would find the first violets and lilies. There, too, after a fit of temper, I went to find comfort and to hide my hot face in the cool leaves and grass.
Helen Keller said,
Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it,
we can never do anything good in the world.
