“The heart was made to be broken.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
The Jewish holiday of Tu Bishvat/Tu B'Shevat began last night at sundown. Be sure to do your homework. Meanwhile, here's another sad pre-Valentine's Day love song!
- Only Love Can Break a
Heart - Gene Pitney
|"Only Love Can Break a Heart" is the title of a popular song
from 1962 (see
1962 in music) performed by the American
Gene Pitney. The song was written by
David (words) and
Burt Bacharach (music) and appears on Pitney's second album
Only Love Can Break a Heart.
Pitney had enjoyed some success as a songwriter prior to breaking through as a performer in his own right. He wrote the songs "Hello Mary Lou", "Rubber Ball", and "He's a Rebel", the latter a number-one Billboard Hot 100 hit for The Crystals in 1962. Ironically, Pitney's success as a singer was beginning at this time, and "He's a Rebel" kept "Only Love Can Break a Heart" from topping the Billboard pop chart, where it spent one week at number two., and two weeks atop the Billboard Easy Listening chart in October and November 1962. "Only Love Can Break a Heart" also reached number 16 on the Billboard R&B chart...

From My Friend, Daniel, of UT - 02/08/15:
|“If I may be pardoned
for suggesting the obvious, I do so only because the obvious is not
observed in so many instances. The obvious includes four imperatives
with reference to children: Love them, Teach them, Respect them, Pray
with them and for them.”
Thanks so much, Daniel!
From Phil Hammond ('64) of FL -02/10/17:
these black and whites taken on our 50th anniversary cruise. I had to
take a picture of the picture to post it. We also renewed our vows with
the Capitan. She said the picture we had made on the ship shows her true
feeling of me. She is the most wonderful woman, and I have loved her
since the10th grade. Sylvia said it is the perfect picture of how she
feels about me. I think that is something special and needed to share
it. She is so special to our family and me and I will always love her.
WOWZERS! What a great picture! Thank you for sharing this, Phil!
From Jane Monfalcone Simmons ('61) of GA -02/09/16:

Valentine's Day Is About Love Not Lovers
by Dr. Karen Gail Lewis
When you think about Valentine's Day, do you feel pleasure? Grief?
Anger? If you are single, Valentine's Day, along with New Years, are the
two most hated holidays. Too many single women say they "hide out" on
In fact, there is no agreed upon origin. There are numerous stories about
the man Valentine and the holiday of love. They range from Roman days to
honor the god Lupercus, to Emperor Claudius forbidding marriage, to Pope
Gelasium turning a pagan game of romance into a game about saints.

Only love can break a heart; only love can mend it again
(whistling and instrumental)
Last night I hurt you, but darlin', remember this
Only love can break a heart; only love can mend it again, hmm, hmm
You know I'm sorry, I'll prove it with just one kiss
Only love can break a heart only love can mend it agai-ai-ain
Give me a chance to make up for the harm I've done
Try to forgive me and let's keep the two of us one.
Please let me hold you and love you for always and always
Only love can break a heart; only love can mend it agai-ai-ain
Only love can break a heart; only love can mend it--again
