Notable August 18 birthdays:

G-Dragon ( Kwon-Ji-yong, 1988 - ), South Korean rapper, songwriter, producer: "Kill them with success and bury them with a big smile...You call me gay, but I can get your girl screaming louder on the computer seat by just clicking Follow on her twitter...Work until your idols become your rivals."

Patrick Swayze ( 1952 - 2009 ), American actor, singer, dancer: "When those you love die, the best you can do is honor their spirit for as long as you live. You make a commitment that you're going to take whatever lesson that person or animal was trying to teach you, and you make it true in your own life. It's a positive way to keep their spirit alive in the world, by keeping it alive in yourself...The way to screw up somebody's life is to give them what they want...There's just something about dance...It's like a primal thing in all of us."
