[R] Setting breaks to data more appropriately

Basic question.  For the below data, i would like to but each of the values
in a bin that represents their value.  So the below would hopefully put .1
in the 0-.1 bin, .2 in the .11-.2 bin and so forth.  The outlying values
would then be put into and outer category representing everything >1.  Im
using the breaks to inform some code for making a clorepleth map that
represents probabilities, which in some cases IS greater than 1 and i need
to identify those better.  As my code stands now, my real data is put put
into this form when brks is called:

        0%        10%        20%        30%        40%        50%        60% 
0.00000000 0.05054675 0.07787235 0.11235238 0.14424786 0.18089360 0.21475990 
       70%        80%        90%       100% 
0.26309899 0.30807771 0.39478573 0.67573483.

But what i want is for the values to be placed in bins corresponding to
their value(0-.1, .11-.2, .21-.3 etc)  

brks <- quantile(Pct.SFD, seq(0,1,1/10))

I think this is clear.  Thanks
