The prophets of the world have been of good heart, or their standards would have stood naked in the field without a defender. Tolstoi’s strictures lose power because they are pessimistic. If he had seen clearly the faults of America, and still believed in her capacity to overcome them, our people might have felt the stimulation of his censure.

Excerpt from book: Ill THE HAND OF THE RACE E)K in your "Century Dictionary," or if you are blind, ask your teacher to do it for you, and learn how many idioms are made on the idea of hand, and how many words are formed from the Latin root manus—enough words to name all the essential affairs of life. "Hand," with quotations and compounds, occupies twenty-four columns, eight pages of this dictionary. The hand is defined as "the organ of apprehension." How perfectly the definition fits my case in both senses of the word "apprehend"! With my hand I seize and hold all that I find in the three V/.v-'-A worlds—physical, intellectual, and spir- aL. - Think how man has regarded the world in terms of the hand. All life is divided between what lies on one hand and on the other. The products of skill are manufactures. The conduct of affairs is management. History seems to be the record—alas for our chronicles of war!—of the maneuvers of armies. But the history of peace, too, the narrative of labor in the field, the forest, and the vineyard, is written in the victorious sign manual—the sign of the hand that has conquered the wilderness. The laborer himself is called a hand. In manacle and manumission we read the story of human slavery and freedom. The minor idioms are myriad; but I will not recall too many, lest you cry, "Hands off!" I cannot desist, however, from this word-game until I have set down a few. Whatever is not one's own by first possession is second-hand. That is what I am told my knowledge is. But my well-meaning friends come to., y o'efe'nsei'andj not consent with endowing mewith natural first-hand knowledge wKicITIsi rTghTfully mine, ascribe to me a preternatural sixth sense and credit to miracles and heaven-sent compensations all that I have won and discovered with my go...

The writings of Helen Keller will always stand the test of time, and will always have something profound, for any and every generation.
Her vivid and thought provoking explanation of how she interprets her environment is stunningly beautiful.
It is filled with interesting historical tidbits, too. She describes the hands of some of the famous people she has met, such as Mark Twain, and what those hands 'said' to her.

This book is also a reminder that many people today need alternative ways to communicate. Most of us know someone with a 'low functioning' loved one on the autism spectrum. I think it is important to remember that in Keller's time, she was considered 'low functioning'. I pray we find the key to unlock autism, and Keller's life and writings offer hope that one day that door, like hers, will be unlocked.

I'm was overwhelmed with the amazing insight to Helen's world and how God allowed her to see and hear by his spirit guiding her through touch smell and revelations he imparted to her. I love her statement I always knew he was there but I didn't know his name unti I was introduced to him at 17

This is a wonderful book and an inspiration to read. I especially enjoyed seeing how the relationship of this once
bratty child progressed through and because of the fantastic work of her friend and teacher. She opened up the brilliant mind of
Helen who was subsequently able to communicate with the world around her. The early loss of her two important
senses of sight and hearing, were a mere minor obstacle to Helen as she heightened and made use of her remaining
senses that most of us just take for granted.

As a nurse, I deal with a lot of patient challenges but reading this gave me a new perspective of the challenges vision & hearing impaired patients go through. This showed me that my perception was way off. Great book! Easy to read & understand. Highly recommend it!

This book is amazing! To think what Helen Keller went through is almost mind boggling. She was a wonderful woman who stood her ground for what she believed in, despite not being able to hear or see. She overcame obstacles that would make your head spin. The book "The World I Live In" reveals so much about her life. Read it and you, too, will be amazed.

It is a difficult read, I like the book, but only once.

I had no idea of parts of the senses that go unused. Helen Keller gave detailed readings of the world and activities. This felt like it had a poetry slant to her story.
I think this is a fake publisher... the book has several formatting issues and a couple of typos. Still readable, but go buy a real book where Shakespeare is not spelled "Shakspere"
