Heartbreak Spread

On This Day

The Greeks believed the heart was the seat of the spirit, the Egyptians thought all emotions and intellect arose from it, and the Chinese believe the heart to be the place of happiness.

On-again, off-again couple Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton divorced for the second and final time on this day in 1976.
