Deaf History

"My line of work obliges me to go into many homes. Once inside I am invariably questioned about the deaf. But most often the questions are as laughable as they are absurd; they merely prove that almost everyone has gotten the falsest possible ideas about us; few people have an adequate notion of our state, our resources, or our way of communicating with each other in sign language." -- Pierre Desloges, deaf bookbinder, 1779.
