Deafness Quotations

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

But people who think they can project themselves into deafness are mistaken because you can't. And I'm not talking about imagining what a deaf person's whole life is like I even mean just realizing what it is like for an instant.
Richard Masur

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

By deafness one gains in one respect more than one loses; one misses more nonsense than sense.
Horace Walpole
