” God may not have meant Helen to have the eyes you speak of. Sullivan:I mean her to.” – The Miracle Worker

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0056241/quotes    Captain Arthur Keller: What would another week accomplish ? We are more than satisfied. You taught her things to do, how to behave. She’s more manageable, cleaner.  

Annie Sullivan: Cleaner?    Captain Arthur Keller: Well, we say cleanliness is next to godliness.    Annie Sullivan: Cleanliness is next to nothing! Give me more time with her.

Captain Arthur Keller: Look, what’s she spelling? Teaching a dog to spell? The dog doesn’t know what she means any more than she knows what you mean, Miss Sullivan. I think you ask too much of her and yourself. God may not have meant Helen to have the eyes you speak of. 

Annie Sullivan: I mean her to.
