Here is an excerpt from the introduction:
Now in my eighties, when I think about the collection of experiences that has made up my life, I am struck by its similarity to a crazy quilt. Bright satins and taffetas alongside somber flannels and dark velveteens, all tied together with many colored embroidery threads in a variety of intricate stitches. If a woman is fortunate, she will feel the
balance of her experience leans to the bright-satins-and taffetas side. But I have come to understand how much we can learn from hardship and can now look with appreciation
at the dark and somber patches in the quilt of my life. The bright patches and the dark patches and the intricate stitches all combine to make a warm and comforting coverlet. Marcel Proust said, and forgive my translation, for I never became as adept with French as my good friend Elizabeth, "Happiness is beneficial to the body, but it is grief that develops the powers of the mind."
