Quotes: Disability Superpower
"Sir": Lipreading? But how can you read my lips if you're blind?
Whitlow: Oh, it's because I'm deaf, sir, that my sense of vision is naturally enhanced. Blind people are known to have very keen hearing, so they sort of... cancel each other out.
"Sir": You mean you can see and hear perfectly?
Whitlow: Yes, because I'm blind and deaf. One miraculously compensates for the other.

When one relies on sight to perceive the world, it is like trying to stare at the galaxy through a crack in the door.

"It's not disabled! It's handicapable!"
