Quote Bullet

Doubtless it will seem strange to many that the hand unaided by sight can feel action, sentiment, beauty in the cold marble; and yet it is true that I derive genuine pleasure from touching great works of art. As my finger tips trace line and curve, they discover the thought and emotion which the artist has portrayed.
~ Helen Keller - [Museums and Galleries]

~ Helen Keller - [Bible]
