||Jeanette Winterson was born on August 27, 1959|
We are friends and I do like to pass the day with you in serious and inconsequential chatter. I wouldn't mind washing up beside you, dusting beside you, reading the back half of the paper while you read the front. We are friends and I would miss you, do miss you and think of you very often.More quotations from Jeanette Winterson
||Dean Devlin was born on August 27, 1962|
We became a little obsessed with what we could do with these new toys, ... We didn't give the attention that we should to the characters. . . . The thing that was wrong with 'Godzilla' was the script I wrote, and it was a powerful lesson for me.More quotations from Dean Devlin
||Yolanda Adams was born on August 27, 1962|
[Adams knows her fans like to get intimate with her. Like to share their personal stories because they feel her singing about their lives.] I represent community because of the music I sing, ... It's not like on the one side is the artist and on the other side is the fans, because we're all connected through one thing, and that's Jesus Christ.More quotations from Yolanda Adams
||Jim Thome was born on August 27, 1970|
My dad told me when I went into high school, 'It's not what you do when you walk in the door that matters. It's what you do when you walk out.' That's when you've made a lasting impression.More quotations from Jim Thome

Ethiopian emperor and social reformer(1930–1974) of Ethiopia, 1892-1975 He is the religious symbol for God incarnate among the Rastafari movement.
Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war and until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes. And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war. And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained... now everywhere is war.More quotations from Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia
||Sam Levenson died on August 27, 1980|
American author and humorist. 1911-1980
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk aloneMore quotations from Sam Levenson
||Stevie Ray Vaughan died on August 27, 1990|
You know, there's a big lie in this business. The lie is that it's okay to go out in flames. But that doesn't do anybody much good. I may be wrong, but I think Hendrix was trying to come around.More quotations from Stevie Ray Vaughan
