A blind man will not thank you for a looking-glass.
To be blind is not miserable; not to be able to bear blindness, that is miserable.John Milton
What a blind person needs is not a teacher but another self.Helen Keller
O loss of sight, of thee I most complain! Blind among enemies, O worse than chains, dungeon or beggary, or decrepit age! Light, the prime work of God, to me is extinct, and all her various objects of delight annulled, which might in part my grief have eased. Inferior to the vilest now become of man or worm; the vilest here excel me, they creep, yet see; I, dark in light, exposed to daily fraud, contempt, abuse and wrong, within doors, or without, still as a fool, in power of others, never in my own; scarce half I seem to live, dead more than half.John Milton
My darkness has been filled with the light of intelligence, and behold, the outer day-lit world was stumbling and groping in social blindness.Helen Keller

We may remark in passing that to be blind and beloved may, in this world where nothing is perfect, be among the most strangely exquisite forms of happiness. The supreme happiness in life is the assurance of being loved; of being loved for oneself, even in spite of oneself; and this assurance the blind man possesses. In his affliction, to be served is to be caressed. Does he lack anything? no. Possessing love he is not deprived of light. A love, moreover, that is wholly pure. There can be no blindness where there is this certainty.Victor Hugo
There's none so blind as they that won't see.Jonathan Swift
It's sad that, in our blindness we gather thorns for flowers
