author, desiree d. robinson

Author, Desiree D. Robinson, is the author of Virtue: Chasing After Your Destiny. This is her writing debut, and she takes her passion very seriously.  Desiree is a New York City native. She is the mother of bubbly, bright little girl. She is passionate about learning and writing. Desiree says that she always knew that she would be a writer, but she always thought that she would write a children's book. Desiree believes that this book chose her.

My favorite part about being an author is self expression. I get to speak freely, and uninterrupted, about my life and how I see the world. I get to share my life, and the world gets to either take it or leave it. When you are an author, you are a creator, and a visionary. You give of yourself because you bare your soul in your work. Every word contains a little piece of you. You leave yourself open and vulnerable to the world, but in a good way. I like the fact that I get the opportunity to speak to people anywhere in the world who I may never have a chance to meet, or otherwise have a connection, or conversation with. Being an author is the best way that I can be me.


greetings from the author

"Virtue, if you don't know what it is. You will not understand how to fight for it. In life, do not be defined by what you go through. Be defined by how you come out of it. Let your triumph be your focus."

When you understand virtue, then it will be as no surprise when others begin to attack you in every area of your life that was meant to prove you. Jesus was a man of virtue.  When they could no longer deny His virtue, they began to attack His character, and His body. Jesus was vilified, and lied on because the enemy hates virtue.

Dark times come to teach us new ways of seeing God's vision for our lives. You will come out better than you were before, with your virtue still intact as long as you remain committed to the process.


If you live long enough, you will not make it through life without feeling love, loss, joy, or pain. So make the best of every situation by choosing to love yourself first, gain spiritual enlightenment, and allow yourself to experience your emotions so that you can heal from them, and move forward with a clear mind. Pain is a process. You are destined to live a virtuous life.

two kinds of virtue

“Virtue, then, being of two kinds, intellectual and moral, intellectual virtue owes both its birth and its growth to teaching (for which reason it requires experience and time), while moral virtue comes about as a result of habit. From this it is also plain that none of the moral virtues arises in us by nature; for nothing that exists by nature can form a habit contrary to its nature. Neither by nature, then, nor contrary to nature do the virtues arise in us; rather we are adapted by nature to receive them, and are made perfect by habit.”

-Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics
