Deafness Quotations

The handicap of deafness is not in the ear; it is in the mind.
Marlee Matlin

I actually think the deafness makes you see clearer. If you can't hear, you somehow see.
David Hockney

I live my life like everyone else; everyone has their own obstacles. Mine is deafness.
Marlee Matlin

Think you of the fact that a deaf person cannot hear. Then, what deafness may we not all possess? What senses do we lack that we cannot see and cannot hear another world all around us?
Frank Herbert

We have made mistakes. In our haste to do all things for all people, we did not foresee the full consequences of our actions. And when the people raised their voices, we didn't hear. But our deafness was only a temporary condition, and not an irreversible condition.
Barbara Jordan
