These stories explore innumerable ways of finding compassion for others and for one's self. Quinn's teachings, while deeply personal and revealing, are free of gratuitous self-absorption and serve the larger purpose of suggesting how we might respond more creatively to the inevitable disappointment and suffering that constitute the human condition. Through her stories, poetry, and gentle prompts at the end of each chapter, Quinn encourages others to explore what she has learned about making the best from what comes her way. In all of this she succeeds admirably. A litany of joyful, hilarious, and extraordinary experiences — the stuff of what is possible in life. In these "111 Stories from Pre-school to Providence" we learn that wisdom is possible at any age.
