Roaming the byways of literature

Literary quote – from a great woman

Helen KellerThe late, great Helen Keller knew what it was to be left out and overlooked. Like so many others she seems to have found her comfort in books.

Literature is my Utopia. Here I am not disenfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet, gracious discourses of my book friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness.

There is a lot in this quote to mull over, but I particularly like the idea of discourse between friends being sweet and gracious. She really had a gift for description.
