Anne Sullivan:

"The most important day I remember in all my life is the one on which my teacher, Anne Mansfield Sullivan, came to me. I am filled with wonder when I consider the immeasurable contrasts between the two lives which it connects."

"All the best of me belongs to her - there is not a talent, or an inspiration or a joy in me that has not awakened by her loving touch."
