The supreme happiness in life is the assurance of being loved; of being loved for oneself, even in spite of oneself; and this assurance the blind man possesses.

There can be no blindness where there is this certainty.

Blindness hatred is blind, as well as love.
To speak when there is nothing to be said: this is imprudence. To be silent when there is something to be said: this is deception. To speak without paying attention to the expression on the person's face: this is called blindness.
