My hands have lingered upon the living marvel of Roman sculpture as well as that of later generations. Helen would spend her second day at museums. All that remains is for those who have the "gift" of sight to put it to good use. The same key lies waiting in smaller museums, and in books on the shelves of even small libraries.
Friends who are near to me I know well, because through the months and years they reveal themselves to me in all their phases; but of casual friends I have only an incomplete impression, an impression gained from handclasp, from spoken words which I take from their lips with my finger tips, or which they tap into the palm of my hand.
Upon my short visit to this temple of art I should not be able to review a fraction of that great world of art which is open to you. III The next day - the second day of sight - I should arise with the dawn and see the thrilling miracle by which night is transformed into day.
Now I begin my rounds of the city. Sometimes it was as long as a year; sometimes as short as twenty-four hours. There, indeed, is a place to use your eyes. Then, at last, you would really see, and a new world of beauty would open itself before you.
The first day would be a busy one. I am sure I should not be disappointed in the panorama spread out before me, for to me it would be a vision of another world.
You who can see can spend many fruitful days there, but I, with my imaginary three days of sight, could only take a hasty glimpse, and pass on. Particularly does this observation apply to those who have lost sight and hearing in adult life.
Yet, those who have eyes apparently see little. Make the most of every sense; glory in all the facets of pleasure and beauty which the world reveals to you through the several means of contact which Nature provides.
If I had eyes, how happily would I embark upon so fascinating a study! I speak, of course, of free men who have a choice, not condemned criminals whose sphere of activities is strictly delimited.
How many, I wonder, give it so much as a second glance? One must learn from experience to weigh the merits of line, of composition, of form and color.
I throw my eyes out of focus, so that I see no particular object but a seething kaleidoscope of color. It is interesting that,whilst discussing the restoration of her sight in Three Days to See, Helen Keller does not wish to have her sight restored permanently but just long enough to allow her to marvel in the things others take for granted.
At midnight my temporary respite from blindness would cease, and permanent night would close in on me again. I am delighted to have the cool waters of a brook rush through my open fingers.
The things I knew through touch I should now see. This animated picture is a part of the lives of millions of people every day.
I take a stay-at-home trip abroad by visiting the foreign quarters.It is those that are impaired that could describe in full detail what they would accomplish if they were given the opportunity to see and or hear for one or more days, such as Helen Keller does in her essay, "Three Days to See." Helen Keller was born with her sight and hearing, but only nineteen months into her life she fell ill and lost both of these gifts.
