I hate the expression “deaf dumb and blind”. Some of the dumbest people are the ones with sight and hearing. Helen Keller said it best: ” The only worse thing than being blind is having sight but no vision.” And I’m gonna scream the next time I hear ” I was blind but now I see” in a song.
“Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Les grandes personnes ne comprennent jamais rien toutes seules, et c’est fatigant, pour les enfants, de toujours et toujours leur donner des explications.”—Le Petit Prince de Antoine de Saint Exupéry
