Born today, you are considered by some to be "bigger than life," and indeed you are likely to be remembered for a kind of bombastic, boundless approach to life that is at once feared, admired and imitated. The truth is that there are many people who would actually like to be you -- though you would be the first to point out that being you isn't always what it's cracked up to be. Indeed, you know yourself better than anyone else knows you, and you are keenly aware of your strengths and your weaknesses. You don't take yourself too seriously, though you will seriously commit yourself to a worthy enterprise.
Your down-to-earth approach to daily toils can be an inspiration to those around you. You are not one to get upset about that which you cannot control, and instead of fighting against such things, you instead try to understand what you could learn from them.
Also born on this date are: Tina Yothers, actress; Tammy Wynette, singer; Pat Carroll, actress; Tyrone Power, actor; Karl Marx, author and political philosopher.
