A Quote by Helen Hayes on america, choice, home, learning, life, people, science, wishes, and worth

Science has taught us to lengthen life. Now we must learn to make a longer life worth living. Older people deserve choices that let us live out our days as we wish. We've seen people making such choices all over America, and we realize what we might have known from the start: For most of us, there really is no place like home.

A Quote by Helen Hayes on eternity and love

The story of a love is not important - what is important is that one is capable of love. It is perhaps the only glimpse we are permitted of eternity.

A Quote by Helen Hayes on dignity, love, and truth

The truth is that there is only one terminal dignity-love. And the story of a love is not important-what is important is that one is capable of love.

A Quote by Helen Hayes on acceptance, courage, joy, poets, resilience, sorrow, strength, and wisdom

We rely upon the poets, the philosophers and the playwrights to articulate what most of us can only feel, in joy or sorrow. They illuminate the thoughts for which we only grope. They give us the strength and balm we cannot find in ourselves. Whenever I find my courage wavering I rush to them. They give me the wisdom of acceptance, the will and resilience to push on.

A Quote by Helen Hayes on achievement, aim, knowledge, motherhood, niceness, study, and success

My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success. She said that achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others. That is nice but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about success.
