Born today, you are not usually one to be ruffled by anything you may encounter -- but when you do you are sure to surprise many with the passion with which you express yourself. Otherwise, you are soft-spoken in the extreme. Though you may have much to say, you're not the kind to say it in a way that demands attention. Rather, you let others choose whether to listen to you -- and whether or not they do, you are sure to go about your business, sharing your unique perspective with anyone, depending on the venue in which you find yourself. You don't have to be in the spotlight to do your best work; indeed, there are times when you prefer to be playing second or third fiddle, for you can grow quite bored with being the center of attention.
You work very well under pressure, though when you are thwarted in love you can become almost despondent. Fortunately, however, for you the best remedy for a broken heart is the promise of romance. For this reason, you're never likely to be without a love interest for any length of time at all.
Also born on this date are: Steven Wright, comedian; Tom Hulce, actor; Dave Brubeck, musician; Agnes Moorehead, actress; Ira Gershwin, lyricist; Lynn Fontanne, actress.
