Born today, you are no stranger to the darker corners in life, and indeed you are likely to derive a great deal of meaning and inspiration from experiences that others would prefer to avoid altogether. You are likely to develop a unique perspective in life and use it to your advantage again and again -- though it is not always going to make things easy for you. In fact, difficulty and reward go hand-in-hand as far as you are concerned, and while you don't necessarily invite hardship, you know how to deal with it in a productive, progressive, forward-moving kind of way.
Always willing to pick yourself up when you fall, you are certain to learn from your experiences in ways that others may not, and this will give you certain advantages in life -- tenacity and longevity, to name only two. You are able to outlast many others in your pursuit of achievement and success.
Also born on this date are: Johnny Cash, singer and songwriter; Erykah Badu, singer; Michael Bolton, singer; Jackie Gleason, actor and comedian; Fats Domino, musician; Victor Hugo, author; William Frawley, actor; Buffalo Bill Cody, Old West showman; Tony Randall, actor; Robert Alda, actor; Ariel Sharon, Israeli leader; Betty Hutton, actress.
