“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”
Helen Keller is the author of that statement. She was an American author and disability rights advocate. The amazing thing about her is that she lost her sight and hearing after a bout of illness at the age of 19 months.
Keller's autobiography, ‘The Story of My Life’ publicized her education and life with Anne Sullivan, her teacher. The book was adapted as a play by William Gibson, and was also adapted as a film under the same title, ‘The Miracle Worker’.
I have watched the play ‘The Miracle Worker’ in a theatre many years ago and was very impressed with that story. I have watched movie as well.

I believe it is very inspirational movie that reminds us we are able to achieve a lot if we have hope, knowledge and confidence in ourselves.
