Notable August 6 birthdays:

Alfred Tennyson ( 1980 - 1892 ), English Baron, author, poet: "Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all...A lie which is half a truth is ever the blackest of lies...I must lose myself in action, lest I wither in despair...So many worlds, so much to do, so little done, such things to be...Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control; these three alone lead life to sovereign power."

Andy Warhol ( 1928 - 1987 ), American artist, film director: "Art is anything you can get away with...Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art...In the future, everybody will be famous for fifteen minutes...The idea is not to live forever; it is to create something that will."

Lucille Ball ( 1911 - 1989 ), American actress, comedian, producer Star Trek: "One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself...The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age...A man who correctly guesses a woman’s age may be smart, but he’s not very bright...Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world."
