Helen Keller (1880–1968), U.S. author. As quoted in Eleanor: The Years Alone, ch. 3, by Joseph P. Lash (1972).
Keller, who was deaf and blind but intellectually accomplished, wrote this in a 1948 letter to former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, after reading the Declaration of Human Rights drafted by the Commission on Human Rights of the new United Nations. Roosevelt had represented the United States and had chaired the Commission.
