On Wings of Love

February is a time for celebrating matters of the heart.

 

Here are some favorite quotes from Helen Keller, Helen Steiner Rice, and the psalmist, King David.

Helen Keller, author, activist, and lecturer, was the first deaf/blind person to

earn a bachelor’s degree.  She was also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1964.  She wisely said this:

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched—they must be felt in the heart.”

 

Helen Steiner Rice was a successful businesswoman and lecturer,

but she found more joy in writing inspirational poetry, which endeared her to

the hearts of thousands of 20th Century Americans.

 

On Wings of Love

 

The priceless gift of life is love,
For with the help of God above
Love can change the human race
And make this world a better place
For love dissolves all hate and fear
And makes our vision bright and clear
So we can see and rise above
Our pettiness on wings of love.

Helen Steiner Rice
