There are many adult development and self-help books offering helpful programs and philosophies which can facilitate better understanding of ourselves and others, and enhance our emotional health and personal achievement.

But the value of this collection of dozens of brief essays and stories is in how much the experiences of "ordinary" people, not experts, can teach us about the deep inspiration we can find in simple words.

One of the contributors for example, homemaker Carole O'Hare, grieves the loss of her mother in United Flight 93, killed by terrorists. Carole relates the many ways she valued the life with her mother, and recalls a favorite piece of advice from her, "Life is for the living, Carole. Go do it." Carole says it has helped her not only keep living in spite of grief, but to write a newsletter for Flight 93 families.

As editor Marlo Thomas notes in the Foreword, "the right words can transform us."

Thomas presents 101 new stories that are at once universal and personal. From big cities to farm communities, from office cubicles to hospital wards, from Normandy Beach to Boston's Fenway Park, the contributors, selected from among thousands, tell about the words that changed their lives forever. And the "right words" can come from anywhere--the pages of a songbook, the pulpit of a church, the wreckage of Ground Zero, a hand-stitched sampler hanging on a wall, or a child's simple expression of love.--From publisher description.… (more)
