Lincoln Cole is on a 4WILLSPUBLISHING Blog Tour and today he is taking us on a PERSONAL INTERVIEW.  Lets give Lincoln a great bit welcome and set out the hospitality…



What is your idea of perfect happiness?

Living a quiet life surrounded by family and friends.


What is your greatest fear?

Losing the people I love.


What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?

I can be very withdrawn and unsure of my decisions. I don’t like to step up.


What is the trait you most deplore in others?

Meanness. I don’t like people who mistreat others.


What is your current state of mind?

Depressed after losing my sister. She and I were very close, and it’s been hard moving on.


What do you consider the most overrated virtue?

Athleticism. Playing a sport doesn’t make a person a hero.


On what occasion do you lie?

I don’t like to lie, and I’m not good at it.


What or who is the greatest love of your life?

I haven’t fallen in love yet, so I’m still waiting.


Which talent would you most like to have?

I would love to be able to speak more languages. Right now, I only know two.


If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

I would be better at picking something and sticking with it.


What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?

Being alone.


What is your favorite occupation?

Doctors work really hard to protect and help people, so I think that’s my answer.


What do you most value in your friends?

An openness to new ideas.


What is it that you most dislike?

Hatred and intolerance.


What is your greatest regret?

I didn’t realize my sister was so sick, and I didn’t spend enough time with her before she passed. I miss her.


How would you like to die?

I’d rather not die, if possible.


What is your motto?

Pay it forward and good things will come.


Lincoln Cole

About Shirley Harris-Slaughter

I love old buildings and history. That's why I ended up writing about the history that surrounded me all of my life - "Our Lady of Victory, the Saga of an African-American Catholic Community." Plus our church had closed and the school is torn down, so I felt it was imperative that we preserve the history or it would be lost forever.
