Passage 1e: Helen Keller,      The Story of My Life Even in the days before my teacher came, I used to feel along the square stiff boxwood hedges, and, guided by the sense of smell would find the first violets and lilies. There, too, after a fit of temper, I  went to find comfort and to hide my hot face in the cool leaves and grass. What joy it was to lose  myself in that gardenof flowers, to wander happily from spot to spot, until, coming suddenly upon a 5 beautiful vine, I recognized it by its leaves and blossoms, and knew it was the vine which covered the tumble-down summer-house at the farther end of the garden! Here, also, were trailing clematis,  drooping jessamine, and some rare sweet flowers called butterfly lilies, because their fragile petals  resemble butterflies’ wings. But the roses—they were loveliest of all. Never have I found in the  greenhouses of the North such heart-satisfying roses as the climbing roses of my southern home.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
