The Happiness Habit

A woman with full dark hair and wearing a long dark dress, her face in partial profile, sits in a simple wooden chair. A locket hangs from a slender chain around her neck; in her hands is a magnolia, its large white flower surrounded by dark leaves.

“No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit.” – Helen Keller

Helen Keller (1880 –1968) was an American author/lecturer. The story of how Keller’s teacher, Anne Sullivan, helped her to communicate despite Keller being deaf/blind was made famous in the film ‘The Miracle Worker.’ She campaigned for women’s rights, labor rights and published 12  books.
