Feeling With The Heart

“Why do we close our eyes when we pray, cry, kiss, dream? Because the most beautiful things in life are not seen but felt only by the heart.”

The above quote has been attributed to Denzel Washington, however, I think it captures the spirit of the original quote by Helen Keller; “The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart.”

Whether you do or whether you don’t observe Valentine’s Day just being alive today is reason enough to be grateful and celebrate.

Wishing you a Happy Valentine’s Day! Muah!๐Ÿ’‹

  1. great quote by two amazing legends. love this post. its a blessing to be alive. indeed ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you! I’m so glad you enjoyed the post. Have a great day!! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. I like both versions of the quote. It’s very true. Some of the best things about life must be felt with the heart. I’d also add in the context of Valentine’s Day chocolate, that some pretty good things about life have to be tasted with the tongue.

  3. Hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s day, too.

    The book “The Little Prince” had a similar quote as well.

    1. I’ll have to check out the quote from “The Little Prince”. I hope you had a nice day Katelon. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I am a big fan of Denzil Washington.

    1. I am too. When I was working in downtown Pittsburgh he was filming a movie in our building. We tried so hard to figure out what floor he was on but the building management was mum.

      1. I know ๐Ÿ˜ขit was heartbreaking to be so close yet so far away.

  8. Lovely quotes. Wishing you a very happy Valentines Day and every day.
