Among my Favorite Quotes:
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." - Nelson Mandela
"This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine " -Spiritual

More Information About Rob
STACEY A. H. TAYLOR (Writer - "Lola Does A new Chapter", "Lola Does The Speed Round", "Lola does Dr. Dumb-Ass"): has been writing professionally since the publication of her first novel, A Greater Good, in 2013. She was born in Cleveland, Ohio, raised in Boca Raton, Florida, currently resides near Dallas, Texas, but considers St. Louis, Missouri her home. Words are her passion, time is her plague, and her family is her purpose.
Words are her passion. Words. Groups of letters. The same twenty-six letters of the alphabet have been used throughout centuries to write and/or translate works such as The Bible, The Torah, The Quran, Shakespeare’s plays and poems, The Constitution of the United States, Einstein’s theories, ad infinitum. These same twenty-six letters, arranged and re-arranged in countless configurations have the power to unite masses, divide masses, start wars, end wars, make people laugh, cry, anger, and even love. Is it any wonder words are her passion? She believes that the written word is undoubtedly the most significant and important creation of all time. As Lincoln once said, “The written word may be man’s greatest invention. It allows us to converse with the dead, the absent, and the unborn.”
Time is her plague. Time. That ever-ticking clock on the wall. Time is a heartless thief, stealing moments indiscriminately as they pass, reminding us that life is precious, life is limited, and life is the greatest gift of all. To squander time is to squander life, which is to commit the greatest crime of all.
Family is her purpose. Family. Those whom you love unconditionally. Those for whom you give all you have, gladly and freely. When we set out to define our goals, our purpose, ourselves, we often think of our careers. We introduce ourselves perhaps as a teacher, or a writer, or a physician. But these are only the things we do. It is important to define your self, for therein lies the mission statement of your life. Stacey defines herself as a mother, a daughter, a sister, a wife, a humanitarian, and strives to be a compassionate being. It is from this identity that she approaches life. Whatever your baseline is, define it, embrace it, and let it be your purpose for all you do.
