Quoting Juria, quoting Helen Keller

I have just finished reading Juria's journal entries about her trip to Cambodia and the work she did as a volunteer building water tanks. In one of her entries she explains why she wanted to be part of the volunteer program and quoted Helen Keller.

As Helen Keller said: “Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved.”

I just loved it so much I had to post it somewhere that I'll see it again and again. Thanks Juria!
