Born today, you are likely to know many facts and how to do many things, but that is never enough for you. You are compelled to teach others what you know and, in the process, to learn more yourself. Unshared knowledge is, to you, something of a waste. Learning is only valuable to you if it is passed along, and you have what it takes to be an effective and memorable teacher. It is never enough for you to instruct others with mere facts, figures and platitudes; rather, you want those you teach to discover things about themselves that they can use in their daily lives -- to learn more, and to teach others in turn.
You have a secret side that you are not willing to share with just anybody. Those who are lucky enough to get to know this facet of your personality will surely delight in your intimate acquaintance, for you are unique and surprising, and you shed light on almost everyone you encounter.
Also born on this date are: Ludacris, rapper; Harry Connick Jr., singer and actor; Paul "Bear" Bryant, football coach; Kristy McNichol, actress; Moby, DJ and musician; Tom Landry, football coach; Virginia Madsen, actress; Brian DePalma, director; Ferdinand Marcos, former president of the Philippines; D.H. Lawrence, poet and author.
