Everything we do is to be offered to the Lord; and if done so with a pure heart of love, it becomes holy.
Joyce Meyer
A big heart is both a clunky and a delicate thing; it doesn’t protect itself and it doesn’t hide. It stands out, like a baby’s fontanel, where you can see the soul pulse through.
Anne Lamott
You can take my heart, but I can’t let you take my dog.
Karin Slaughter
Take adultery or theft.
Merely sins.
It is evil who dines on the soul,
stretching out its long bone tongue.
It is evil who tweezers my heart,
picking out its atomic worms.
Anne Sexton
It’s not that they’re small, the fair folk. Especially not the queen of them all, Mab of the flashing eyes and the slow smile with lips that can conjure your heart under the hills for a hundred years. It’s not that they’re small. It’s that we’re so far away.
Neil Gaiman

Libba Bray
Ernest Bevin had many of the strongest characteristics of the English race. His manliness, his common sense, his rough simplicity, sturdiness and kind heart, easy geniality and generosity, all are qualities which we who live in the southern part of this famous island regard with admiration.
Ernest Bevin
The most difficult dilemma for a person is perhaps when his heart testifies to an inevitable reality yet his tongue will not proclaim it, when his mind screams in acceptance of truth but he cant bring himself to state it.
Umera Ahmed
I’m only interested in stories that are about the crushing of the human heart.
Richard Yates

Ambrose Bierce
Every Christian who keeps looking up stretches his heart’s capacity for Heaven.
Joni Eareckson Tada

T.C. Boyle
At one point, I even thought, “Oh, I’ll take diet pills.” I tried it for one day, and I thought my heart was going to explode. It’s awful, and I would never, ever recommend it.
Jenna Ushkowitz
I looked around, counting the competition. Sixteen. To win, all I had to do was incapacitate each one, place my hand over their hearts and turn my palm into a flame. Easy. Yeah right.
Gena Showalter
God, I can push the grass apart and lay my finger on Thy heart.
Edna St. Vincent Millay
One who has no love in his heart will try to possess everything for himself. One who has love in his heart is ready to sacrifice everything, including his own body, for the benefit of others.
People have always liked to be frightened. People love to feel that jolt of adrenaline. People love roller coasters. People love skydiving. These things that really get your heart pumping, and horror films are sort of a safe way to get that rush I guess.
Aaron Stanford
I really like playing the bad guy. There are so many more objectives to play when you’re mad or villainesque, or when there’s some agenda that you have. That’s drama, that’s where the heart lives. I love playing the bad guy, but especially the bad guy who’s still with the girl.
Keegan Allen
We shall draw from the heart of suffering itself the means of inspiration and survival.
Winston Churchill
Art-making is learned by immersion. You take in vocabularies of thought and feeling, grammar, diction, gesture, from the poems of others, and emerge with the power to turn language into a lathe for re-shaping, re-knowing your own tongue, heart, and life.
Jane Hirshfield
Hearts at peace, under an English heaven.
Rupert Brooke
Is it, in Heav’n, a crime to love too well?
To bear too tender or too firm a heart,
To act a lover’s or a Roman’s part?
Is there no bright reversion in the sky
For those who greatly think, or bravely die?
Alexander Pope

I think we’re making progress. We understand where the power of this country lay. It lies in the hearts and souls of Americans. It must lay in our pocketbooks. It lies in the willingness for people to work hard.
George W. Bush
Fairy tales have rules. You are a princess or you aren’t. You are pure at heart or you aren’t. If you are pure at heart, or lucky, you might catch a break.
Richard Siken
It is good to taste for yourself everything you need to know. That worldly pleasures and wealth are not good things, I learned even as a child. I knew it for a long time, but only now have I experienced it.
Hermann Hesse
A couple of years ago I picked up New Yorker writer Alma Guillermoprieto’s “The Heart That Bleeds,” which is reportage from Latin America in the 1990s. You can predict that some books will give you a thrill, but you can’t predict the books that will hit you hard. It is a little bit like falling in love.
Stephen Greenblatt

Mike Ditka
We know the truth, not only by the reason, but also by the heart.
Blaise Pascal

What opens my heart is when my son wakes me up in the morning, nudging me and saying, ‘Mommy, mommy!’
Erykah Badu
There is no knowing what is in a man’s heart.
Charles Portis
Would ministers preach for eternity! They would then act the part of true Christian orators, and not only calmly and cooly inform the understanding, but, by persuasive, pathetic address, endeavour to move the affections and warm the heart.
George Whitefield
You try every trick in the book to keep her. You write her letters. You quote Neruda. You cancel your Facebook. You give her the passwords to all your e-mail accounts. Because you know in your lying cheater’s heart that sometimes a start is all we ever get.
Junot Diaz
What was new was the fact that, despite my heart doing its fight-or-flight, help-we’re-prey-and-HEY-STUPID-THAT’S-A-VAMPIRE number, I was glad to see him. Ridiculous but true. Scary but true.
Robin McKinley

William Shakespeare
Desire is the root of selfishness; clear your heart of desire and be selfless. Selflessness is the key to inner peace.
Christofer Drew
Food can fill our stomachs but never our souls.
Posessions can fill our houses but never our hearts.
Sex can fill our nights but never our hunger for love.
Children can fill our days but never our identities.

Lysa TerKeurst
Fear may fill our world, but it doesn’t have to fill our hearts.

Roy H. Williams
Oh, popular applause! what heart of man
Is proof against thy sweet seducing charms?
The wisest and the best feel urgent need
Of all their caution in thy gentlest gales;
But swell’d into a gust–who then, alas!
With all his canvas set, and inexpert,
And therefore, heedless, can withstand thy power?
William Cowper

Leo Tolstoy
Misogyny is the death of the heart.
Jennifer Stone
We know that there must be a purpose out there. But for us to actually live according to that purpose, we need to first look for it. To actually look for it, you need to start believing in something you can’t see yet. That is faith. Faith is…Full Assurance In The Heart.
Nick Vujicic
Let him take heart who does advance, even in the smallest degree.
It’s the recognition that other people’s problems, their pain and frustrations, are every bit as real as our own – often far worse. In recognizing this fact and trying to offer some assistance, we open our hearts and greatly enhance our sense of gratitude.
Richard Carlson
Each year, millions of animals are euthanized at local shelters because of overpopulation. Almost half of the animals brought into these shelters are euthanized because suitable homes can’t be found for them. Animal rescue, a cause close to my heart, can lead to the safety of millions of these lost souls.
Jud Tylor
Sentimentality, the ostentatious parading of excessive and spurious emotion, is the mark of dishonesty…the wet eyes of the sentimentalist betray his aversion to experience, his fear of life, his arid heart; and it is always, therefore, the signal of secret and violent humanity, the mark of cruelty.
James A. Baldwin
All great amusements are dangerous to the Christian life; but among all those which the world has invented there is none more to be feared than the theater. It is a representation of the passions so natural and so delicate that it excites them and gives birth to them in our hearts, and, above all, to that of love.
Blaise Pascal
We have been told mankind will be judged on the intent of the heart. No mortal can see into the depth of another. There is only One who can. His is the role of a judge-not ours. If you are prone to criticize or judge, remember, we never see the target a man aims at in life. We see only what he hits.
H. Burke Peterson
Out of suffering comes the serious mind; out of salvation, the grateful heart; out of endurance, fortitude; out of deliverance faith. Patient endurance attends to all things.
Teresa of Avila

Cassandra Clare
You can’t have my heart, the doctor told me I’d be dead without it.
Never stop hoping for all of the righteous desires of your heart. But don’t close your eyes and hearts to the simple and elegant beauties of each day’s ordinary moments that make up a rich, well-lived life
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Pittsburgh has this rich industrial past, when it was the heart of the U.S. steel industry, and it burned out as the industry burned out and moved elsewhere.
Curtis Hanson
Why do we smile? Why do we laugh? Why do we feel alone? Why are we sad and confused? Why do we read poetry? Why do we cry when we see a painting? Why is there a riot in the heart when we love? Why do we feel shame? What is that thing in the pit of your stomach called desire?
Benjamin Alire Saenz
The Pig, if I am not mistaken,
Supplies us sausage, ham, and Bacon.
Let others say his heart is big,
I think it stupid of the Pig.

Lauryn Hill
To say that you now trust the Russian military command and control system because some Russian general told you from the bottom of his heart that’s the case, strikes me as most unrealistic.

Paul Azinger
Air goes in and out of my nose, throat, lungs, blood, heart brain – and so I am
Matthew Quick

Brent L. Top
The heart is the mainspring.
Smith Wigglesworth
When you long with all your heart for someone to love you, a madness grows there that shakes all sense from the trees and the water and the earth. And nothing lives for you, except the long deep bitter want. And this is what everyone feels from birth to death.

Alexandre Dumas
The motivation is in my heart to work toward my goals and my dreams.
Nonito Donaire
For being human, we remember and forget. We stray and return, fall down and get up, and cling and let go, again and again. But it is this straying and returning that makes life interesting, this clinging and letting go – damned as it is – that exercises the heart.

Helen Keller
We’re all one thing, like cells in a body. ‘Cept we can’t see the body. The way fish can’t see the ocean. And so we envy each other. Hurt each other. Hate each other. How silly is that? A heart cell hating a lung cell.
Charlie Kaufman
The whole Christ seeks after each sinner, and when the Lord finds it, he gives himself to that one soul as if he had but that one soul to bless. How my heart admires the concentration of all the Godhead and humanity of Christ in his search after each sheep of his flock.

Music, it requires more than brawn. It requires a lot of heart. You gotta put love in there.

Lucretia Mott
If we seek paradise outside ourselves, we cannot have paradise in our hearts.

A humble and contrite heart knows that it can merit nothing before God, and that all that is necessary is to be reconciled to one’s helplessness and let our holy and almighty God care for us, just as an infant surrenders himself to his mother’s care.
Ole Hallesby
That meant I could come back whenever I could manage it. And she was telling me to go. She knew the decision was too big a load for me to carry by myself. She knew me through and through. She had eyes in the back of her heart.

Peter Julian Eymard
Become the person you were meant to be, light your inner fire and follow your heart’s desire.
Leon Brown
Cease to brag to me of America, and its model institutions and constitutions. America, too, will have to strain its energies, crack its sinews, and all but break its heart, as the rest of us have had to do, in thousand-fold wrestle with the Pythons, and mud-demons, before it can become a babitation for the gods.
Thomas Carlyle
Judicious books enlarge the mind and improve the heart.
Mary Wollstonecraft
Every hand and every hour should be devoted to rescue the world from its insanity of guilt, and to assuage the pangs of human hearts with balm and anodyne. To pity distress is but human; to relieve it is Godlike.
Horace Mann
Hearts can’t be broken because they’re made of marzipan.
Kerstin Gier
But one also finds in the human heart a depraved taste for equality, which impels the weak to want to bring the strong down to their level, and which reduces men to preferring equality in servitude to inequality in freedom.

Forgetting: that, too, was the heart’s slow way of healing, but it could only be done alone. Love and loss turns us into the most solitary of creatures, their mysteries can never entirely be shared.
Eric Gamalinda
Whatever your heart clings to and confides in, that is really your God.
Martin Luther
Does it not stir up our hearts, to go forth and help them, does it not make us long to leave our luxury, our exceeding abundant light, and go to them that sit in darkness?

Conceives a changeless work of art.

Khalil Gibran
The heart of a grass-roots campaign is the ownership.
Ted Cruz
People who rarely read long books, or even short stories, still appreciate the greatest examples of the shortest literary genres. I have long been fascinated by these short genres. They seem to lie just where my heart is, somewhere between literature and philosophy.
Gary Saul Morson
Comandante Fidel Castro loves Cuba! But his love for humanity, if you’ll pardon the expression, trumped his love for Cuba: He was universal; he was an internationalist, and he put that spirit in the hearts and minds of the Cuban people through the Cuban Revolution.
Louis Farrakhan
What good are Greek, commentaries, insight, gift, and all the rest, if there is no heart for Christ?

Joseph Conrad
Kobe’s heart is as strong as his muscles.
Yao Ming

R. A. Torrey
True honor is an outflow from a heart that fears God.
John Bevere

Philip James Bailey
True friendship is an unconditional, unselfish, reciprocal service not by lips, but heart to never let its in-built trust to ever fall apart.
I just — I know my own heart and I love you, Turner. And if you have even the tiniest shred of decency, you’ll say something because I’ve said everything I possibly can, and I can’t bear the silence, and — oh for heaven’s sake! Will you at least blink?” He couldn’t even manage that.
Julia Quinn
The poetry and the songs that you are suppose to write, I believe are in your heart. You just have to open up your heart and not be afraid to get them out.

Sonia Rykiel
We have to find the back door to peoples’ hearts because the front door is heavily guarded.
Ravi Zacharias
The screech and mechanical uproar of the big city turns the citified head, fills citified ears – as the song of birds, wind in the trees, animal cries, or as the voices and songs of his loved ones once filled his heart. He is sidewalk-happy.

Prayer continues in the desire of the heart, though the understanding be employed on outward things.

Leo Tolstoy
In the small matters trust the mind, in the large ones the heart.
Sigmund Freud
When you give your heart and you give it to God, where your treasure is, that’s where your heart is. And so you put your heart in your hand which is in the form of monetary- or money, or offering, and you say, ‘God! Here it is!’

Your feet will bring you to where your heart is.
Karen Marie Moning
I truly believe the only way we can create global peace is through not only educating our minds, but our hearts and our souls.
Malala Yousafzai
When I work I do it from my heart. And my heart is that I bring love to the world. When I travel around the world I bring my love. I bring so much love in my heart. I hope you can feel that.
Jackie Chan
Unlike my mother, my father does not cry quietly. His wails roll out like a wave of pain, and I scramble to roll up my window. My mother cannot hear that. I cannot bear to hear it myself. I am not used to my father’s crying. I’ve had no time to harden my heart against him.
Margaret Haddix
The hearts that love will know never winter’s frost and chill. Summer’s warmth is in them still.
Eben E. Rexford
If you have a little sensibility or a heart, you have all the reason to be depressed once in a while. But the depression is like a motor for creation. I need a little bit of depression, a bit of acid in my stomach, to be able to create. When I’m happy, I just want to dance.
Marjane Satrapi
By Anglicising ourselves we have thrown away with a light heart the best claim we have upon the world’s recognition of us as a seperate nationality…the notes of nationality, our language and customs.
Douglas Hyde
None but God can satisfy the longings of an immortal soul; that as the heart was made for Him, so He only can fill it.
Richard Chenevix Trench

He who, having lost one ideal, refuses to give his heart and soul to another and nobler, is like a man who declines to build a house on the rock because the wind and rain have ruined his house on the sand.
Constance Naden
Our ability to participate in government, to elect our leaders and to improve our lives is contingent upon our ability to access the ballot. We know in our heart of hearts that voting is a sacred right – the fount from which all other rights flow.
Stacey Abrams
Listen, you have now found the conditions in which the desire of your heart can become the reality of your being. Stay here, until you acquire a force in you that nothing can destroy. Then you’ll need to go back into life, and there you will measure yourself constantly with forces which will show you your place.
G. I. Gurdjieff
I am a Catholic. I can’t say that without pointing out that I oppose abortion with all my heart and soul. Bill Clinton wanted them safe and rare. Barack Obama is heartsick that so many people he knows have had abortions. But we’re all pro-choice and believe in reproductive freedom and oppose the Republicans’ War on Women.
Joe Biden
He wanted to ask her what sound a heart made when it broke from pleasure, when just the sight of someone filled you the way food, blood, and air never could, when you felt as if you’d been born for only one moment and this, for whatever reason, was it.
Dennis Lehane
With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come. And let my liver rather heat with wine, than my heart cool with mortifying groans.
William Shakespeare
Thorough selfishness destroys or paralyzes enjoyment. A heart made selfish by the contest for wealth is like a citadel stormed in war, utterly shattered.
Henry Ward Beecher
Let’s choose today to quench our thirst for the ‘good life’ we thinks others lead by acknowledging the good that already exists in our lives. We can then offer the universe the gift of our grateful hearts.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
My heart is sair-I dare na tell, My heart is sair for Somebody.
Robert Burns
We are the inheritors of a wonderful world, a beautiful world, full of life and mystery, goodness and pain. But likewise are we the children of an indifferent universe. We break our own hearts imposing our moral order on what is, by nature, a wide web of chaos.
Colin Meloy
The mystic cords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone, all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the angels of our nature.
Abraham Lincoln
I would want to affirm how rare and magnificent and messy it is to be alive, how there is really nothing between us and life, though so many things get in the way, and how our heart is the strongest muscle and resource we have.
Mark Nepo
The advice nearest to my heart and deepest in my convictions is that the Union of the States be cherished and perpetuated.
James Madison
The giant industries that are polluting our planet as well as violating human rights worldwide are the ones nearest and dearest to the hearts of American politicians.
Woody Harrelson
Joy and patience are far above our strength… We must persevere in prayer that he may not permit our hearts to faint… Prayer and perseverance are necessary in our daily conflicts. The best remedy to the weariness is diligence in prayer.
John Calvin
Pray over every truth; for though the renewed heart is not “desperately wicked,” it is quite deceitful enough to become so, if God be forgotten a moment.
Charles Kingsley
I knew I’d miss you. But the surprising thing is, you never leave me. I never forget a thing. Every kind of love, it seems, is the only one. It doesn’t happen twice. And I never expected that you could have a broken heart and love with it too, so much that it doesn’t seem broken at all.
Jodi Lynn Anderson
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.
William Butler Yeats
Jo had learned that hearts, like flowers, cannot be rudely handled, but must open naturally.

Frederick Lenz
The only one who’s got enough of me to break my heart.
Taylor Swift
Death has its revelations: the great sorrows which open the heart open the mind as well; light comes to us with our grief. As for me, I have faith; I believe in a future life. How could I do otherwise? My daughter was a soul; I saw this soul. I touched it, so to speak.
Victor Hugo
I’ve been lucky enough to reach a place where I can speak what’s in my heart, and people know that it comes from a real place; I don’t have to worry about doing what someone’s not doing – I can do me.
If thou hast sinned, lie not down without repentance; for the want of repentance, after one has sinned, makes the heart yet harder and harder.
John Bunyan
Religion and philosophy have their value, but in the end all we can do is open to mystery and live a path with heart
Jack Kornfield
Isn’t it just heart-stopping and mind-numbing when you stop and realize that the Republican Party doesn’t want to win?
Rush Limbaugh
If you desire to become a more generous person, don’t wait for your income to change. Change your heart.
John C. Maxwell
Justice [Sandra Day] O’Connor has been the critical decisive vote on many issues that go to the heart of who we are as a nation.
Dick Durbin
There’s a melody in everything. And once you find the melody, then you connect immediately with the heart. Because sometimes English or Spanish, Swahili or any language gets in the way. But nothing penetrates the heart faster than the melody.
Carlos Santana
Silent waters rocking on the morning of our birth,
like an empty cradle waiting to be filled.
And from the heart of God the Spirit moved upon the earth,
like a mother breathing life into her child.
Gordon Lightfoot
It was the heart of any scam or fiddle — keep the punter uncertain, or, if he is certain, make him certain of the wrong thing.
Terry Pratchett
Let him who gropes painfully in darkness or uncertain light, and prays vehemently that the dawn may ripen into day, lay this precept well to heart: “Do the duty which lies nearest to thee,” which thou know to be a duty! Thy second duty will already have become clearer.
Thomas Carlyle
Every one at the bottom of his heart cherishes vanity; even the toad thinks himself good-looking,–“rather tawny perhaps, but look at his eye!
Woodrow Wilson
The way the Beloved can fit in my heart, two thousand lives could fit in this body of mine. One kernel could contain a thousand bushels, and a hundred worlds pass through the eye of the needle.
Give a moment or two to the angry young man with his foot in his mouth and his heart in his hand.
Billy Joel
Freedom to differ is not limited to things that do not matter much. That would be a mere shadow of freedom. The test of its substance is the right to differ as to things that touch the heart of the existing order.
Robert H. Jackson
At the heart of all great art is an essential melancholy.
Federico Garcia Lorca
Amid all the easily loved darlings of Charlie Brown’s circle, obstreperous Lucy holds a special place in my heart. She fusses and fumes and she carps and complains. That’s because Lucy cares. And it’s the caring that counts.
Judith Crist
When I was young, my father had a serious heart attack. He
survived, but we lost our house and car. Under the Canadian Medicare
system, though, we would have kept the house and car and would have just
had to pay the inheritance tax.
Emo Philips
You shall love your neighbour With your crooked heart, It says so much about love and brokenness — it’s perfect.
John Green
I’d like to go back and revisit the Flash/Captain Cold relationship, because that to me has been the heart of it all along. My impression is that The Flash is a show about a boy’s journey into manhood. For the Flash character, there is a variety of male models presented to him, and Captain Cold is one of them.
Wentworth Miller
The fundamentalists of every faith remain blind to the truth that the “sigh within the prayer is the same in the heart of the Christian, the Muslim, and the Jew.” I have seen this unity with my eyes, heard it with my ears, felt it with all my being.
David James Duncan
And in his heart, I think, he’s now learned what I came to believe, which is, as I’ve said all along, that the sun may burn brightly, and the faces of children may be plump and achingly sweet, but in the air we breathe, in the water we drink and in the food we share, there will always be darkness in this world.
Douglas Coupland
The heart should have fed upon the truth, as insects on a leaf, till it be tinged with the color, and show its food in every … minutest fiber.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
There never was any heart truly great and generous, that was not also tender and compassionate.
Robert Frost
Years of concentration solely on work and individual success meant that in his retirement [Lyndon Johnson] could find no solace in family, in recreation, in sports or in hobbies. It was almost as if the hole in his heart was so large that even the love of a family, without work, could not fill it.
Doris Kearns Goodwin
Put your ass where your heart wants to be.
Steven Pressfield
Ten minutes can be a long time when you’re waiting with a beating heart for something you don’t understand, something you don’t really want to know.
Cornelia Funke
[Colin to Sugar Beth] I put my heart on every page.
Susan Elizabeth Phillips
If the heart wanders or is distracted, bring it back to the point quite gently… And even if you did nothing during the whole of your hour but bring your heart back, though it went away every time you brought it back, your hour would be very well employed.
Saint Francis de Sales
Hearts will break – yet brokenly, live on.
Lord Byron
My heart burns for the deliverance of Africa.
Alexander Murdoch Mackay
The movements which work revolutions in the world are born out of the dreams and visions in a peasant’s heart on the hillside.
James Joyce
One who is established in a comfortable posturewhile concentrating on the inner self alonenaturally becomes immersed in the spontaneousarising of the heart’s ocean of bliss.
Jaideva Singh
Culture and technology exist in a dynamic reciprocal relationship. Culture comprehends technology through the means of narratives or myths, and those narratives influence the future shape and purposes of technology. The culture-technology circuit is at the heart of cultural evolution.
Brenda Laurel
it just breaks / a man’s heart, watching / a girl so involved with her life, / without him like that.
Michelle Tea
Divine symbols which have been given to mankind from time to time speak to that forum of truth which is within our hearts, and waken our consciousness to divine ideas entirely beyond words.
Max Heindel
My strength has always been slow songs, so I never deviated from that, I always took care of my base and that’s just doing slow songs and just pouring out my heart in songs.
Your writing voice is the deepest possible reflection of who you are. The job of your voice is not to seduce or flatter or make well-shaped sentences. In your voice, your readers should be able to hear the contents of your mind, your heart, your soul.
Meg Rosoff
You should carefully observe the way toward which your heart draws you, then choose this way with all your strength.
Martin Buber
The beginning of men’s rebellion against God was, and is, the lack of a thankful heart.

O thou sculptor, painter, poet! Take this lesson to thy heart: That is best which lieth nearest; Shape from that thy work of art.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Today is the day in which to express your noblest qualities of mind and heart, to do at least one worthy thing you have long postponed.
Grenville Kleiser
When you have read the Bible, you will know it is the word of God, because you will have found it the key to your own heart, your own happiness and your own duty.
Woodrow Wilson
It is a curious thing that when one speaks from the heart it is invariably in the worst of taste.
Ngaio Marsh
Don’t let failure go to your heart, and don’t let success go to your head.
Will Smith
It’s the stupid details that my heart is breaking for.
Elvis Costello
My heart and prayers go out to all single moms because it’s tough, and I can’t imagine any teenager dealing with a baby and all those hormones raging.
Jill Scott
But I will wear my heart upon my sleeve For daws to peck at: I am not what I am.
William Shakespeare
Wildness was ever sounding in our ears, and Nature saw to it that besides school lessons some of her own lessons should be learned, perhaps with a view to the time when we should be called to wander in wildness to our heart’s content.
John Muir
Hey kids, while you’re out smashing the state keep a smile on your lips and a song in your hearts.
Robert Crumb
[Apollo 7 was] an expedition of the mind, not of the heart.
Earl Warren
The Jewish nation is indeed, the heart of the world and there is no reason for the existence of empires, kings, rulers, masses or systems aside from their reaction to the Jewish people.
Meir Kahane
Bridget Jones’ Baby, at heart is about the gap between how you expect life to turn out and how it actually does.
Helen Fielding
Sometimes I think the human heart is just a simple shelf. There is only so much you can pile onto it before something falls off an edge and you are left to pick up the pieces.
Jodi Picoult
Grace is not something for which I must look in my heart. It is in the heart of God.
C. F. W. Walther
We had fed the heart on fantasies, The heart’s grown brutal from the fare, More substance in our enmities Than in our love
William Butler Yeats
By spiritual training I mean education of the heart.
Mahatma Gandhi
To be haunted by my heart is no threat.
Nalini Singh
When you move as openness and softness of heart you’re moving in this life within your self in the same way that your being is. When you move as openness and softness of heart, you are all the way into the surface moving and growing, developing as oneness.
John de Ruiter
Broken hearts are like cuts you hate them but you have them.
Britney Spears
We say that money talks, but it speaks a broken, poverty-stricken language. Hearts talk better, clearer, and with wider intelligence.
William Allen White
Maybe, although my heart
is a kitten of butter,
I am blowing it up like a zeppelin.
Anne Sexton
Chanting opens the heart and makes love flow within us.
Swami Muktananda

True love was beyond the bars, but a facsimile of it came with no suffering at all.
Dan Morgenstern
When completed, Disney’s California Adventure will feel more immersive and richer. It will have more heart.
Jay Rasulo
The last, best fruit which comes to late perfection, even in the kindliest soul, is tenderness toward the hard, forbearance toward the unforbearing, warmth of heart toward the cold, philanthropy toward the misanthropic.
Jean Paul
Youth, enthusiasm, and tenderness are like the days of spring. Instead of complaining, O my heart, of their brief duration, try to enjoy them.
Friedrich Ruckert
People who keep dogs live longer on average than those who do not. This is not some kind of pro-canine campaigning fantasy. It is a simple medical fact that the calming influence of the company of a friendly pet animal reduces blood pressure and therefore
the risk of heart attack.
Desmond Morris
Oprah is signed on to help, and a lot of celebrity friends have agreed to help me raise money for Make-A-Wish. We want to make the world a better place for innocent children. I cried my heart out when my father died from cancer. I wish I was smarter, wiser like a doctor, to save these children from dying.
Criss Angel
Be not weary in well-doing. … Out of small things proceedeth that which is great. Behold, the Lord requireth the heart and a willing mind.
Thomas S. Monson
I realized after reading the fourth chapter of St. John’s Gospel, that Christ was truly the Divine Saviour he claimed to be, and no one but He could transform and uplift the downtrodden women of India. … Thus my heart was drawn to the religion of Christ.
Pandita Ramabai
It is said that scattered through Despair’s domain are a multitude of tiny windows, hanging in the void. Each window looks out onto a different scene, being, in our world, a mirror. Sometimes you will look into a mirror and feel the eyes of Despair upon you, feel her hook catch and snag on your heart.
Neil Gaiman
I know now: I do not hope for anything. I do not fear anything, I have freed myself from both the mind and the heart, I have mounted much higher, I am free .
Nikos Kazantzakis
Then Arjuma saw in both armies fathers, grandfathers, sons, grandsons; fathers of wives, uncles, masters; brothers companions and friends. . . . When Arjuna thus saw his kinsmen face to face in both lines of battle, he was overcome by grief and despair and thus he spoke with a sinking heart.
Juan Mascaro
Deep in our Hearts, the Light of Heaven is shining.
May those who have touched our canvas with their eyes and hearts grow knowing the joy and wonder of an artist of life.

I went to lose a jolly, Hour on the trolley, And lost my heart instead…
Ralph Blane
The LORD sees not as man sees; man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.
Whoever tells a lie is not pure of heart, and such a person can not cook a clean soup.
Ludwig van Beethoven
He sees himself in his lover as if in a mirror, not knowing whom he sees, And when they are together, he too is released from pain, and when apart, he longs as he himself is longed for; for reflected in his heart is love’s image, which is love’s answer. But he calls it, and believes it, not love but friendship.
Mary Renault
I always tell beginning runners: Train your brain first. It’s much more important than your heart or legs.
Amby Burfoot
For a noble heart, the most precious gift becomes poor, when the giver stops loving.
William Shakespeare
The only way to have room enough in our hearts to truly love others is to purge all hatred, and replace it with love.
Wes Fesler
The eternal God asks a favor of his bride: “Hold me close to your heart, close as locket or bracelet fits.” No matter whether we walk or stand still, eat or drink, we should at all times wear the golden locket “Jesus” upon our heart.
Henry Suso
The camera can be the most deadly weapon since the assassin’s bullet. Or it can be the lotion of the heart.
Norman Parkinson
I have to give people time to take a picture, and sign autographs. I have to be generous to people. It is in my heart. Without that, I would not be Manny Pacquiao.
Manny Pacquiao
Often when people are diagnosed with a life-changing medical condition, they feel overwhelmed. They feel choked by darkness and hopelessness. Those are times when answers simply do not suffice. That’s because answers don’t always reach the problem where it hurts: in the gut and in the heart.
Joni Eareckson Tada
Language is, in other words, not necessary, but voluntary. If it were necessary, it would have stayed simple; it would not agitate our hearts with ever-present loveliness and ever-cresting ambiguity; it would not dream, on its long white bones, of turning into song.
Mary Oliver
Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it
Gautama Buddha
It seemed clear that wars were not made by generations and their special stupidities, but that wars were made instead by something ignorant in the human heart
John Knowles
Read from some humbler poet, Whose songs gushed from his heart, As showers from the clouds of summer, Or tears from the eyelids start.

Ernest Hemingway
If you try to be anyone but yourself, you will fail; if you are not true to your own heart, you will fail. Then again, there’s no success like failure
Bob Dylan
Time isn’t just a fleeting thing. It never moves forward without engraving its mark upon the heart.
Ravi Zacharias
Somewhere in the heart of experience there is an order and a coherence which we might purprise if we were attentive enough, loving enough, or patient enough.
Lawrence Durrell
I want the public to know the truth, not every condition affecting the heart comes from a blockage.
Robert Atkins
We’ll squeeze every second that we can from our lives, because we’re young, and we have plenty of years to grow. We’ll grow until we’re braver. We’ll grow until our bones ache and our skin wrinkles and our hair goes white, and until our hearts decide, at last, that it’s time to stop.
Lauren DeStefano
Follow your heart, your instincts. People might try to dissuade you from your passion, but no one can live your life but you.
Olympia Dukakis
Live your life from your heart. Share from your heart. And your story will touch and heal people’s souls.
Melody Beattie
The importance of heart health became very real for me when my father died of heart disease seven years ago. Having experienced the loss first hand, I am inspired to do everything I can to break the cycle and prevent families from losing loved ones to this preventable disease.
Monica Potter
When we kiss my heart’s on fire, burning with a strange desire. And I know that every time I kiss you, that your heart’s on fire, too.
Elvis Presley
To inspire love is a woman’s greatest ambition, believe me. It’s the one thing woman care about and there’s no woman so proud that she does not rejoice at heart in her conquests.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one’s heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Stephen Covey
Enough of dreams! No longer mock
The burdened hearts of men!
Not on the cloud, but on the rock
Build thou thy faith again;
O range no more the realms of air,
Stoop to the glen-bound streams;
Thy hope was all too like despair:
Enough, enough of dreams.
Alfred Noyes
Oh well, perhaps when you’re my age you’ll know the heart is an untrustworthy beast.The mind too,but it doesn’t talk about love.
Graham Greene
I’d rather be called a boy and play with paper airplanes than be called a man and play with a girl’s heart.
Niall Horan
The time comes when our hearts sink utterly;
When we remember Deirdre and her tale,
And that her lips are dust.
James Kenneth Stephen
The scars of others should teach us caution.
St. Jerome
Just as Jesus predicted, what originates in the secret place won’t always remain a secret. … How do we guard — or maybe it would be more appropriate to say, guard against — our hearts? How do we monitor what’s going on in that secret place that has the potential to go public at any moment?
Andy Stanley
You can’t,” I murmured, swallowing the tears back with great effort. “You can’t keep saving me, can’t keep trying to. It’s too late.” “No,” he said. His heart was in his eyes, and it was ripping mine apart. “Not for you. Never.
Richelle Mead
I am my heart’s undertaker. Daily I go and retrieve its tattered remains, place them delicately into its little coffin, and bury it in the depths of my memory, only to have to do it all again tomorrow.
Emilie Autumn

Obedience is the true holocaust which we sacrifice to God on the altar of our hearts.

At the heart of any successful film is a powerful story. And a story should be just that: a narrative with a beginning, middle, and end, powerful protagonists that audiences can identify with, and a dramatic arc that is able to capture and hold viewers’ intellectual and emotional attention.
Julia Bacha
It’s okay to spin around and around in the same place. Just so long as you’re singing your heart out.
THAT’s what life’s all about.
Chica Umino
Morality must be the heart of our existence, if it is to be what it wants to be for us. The highest form of philosophy is ethics. Thus all philosophy begins with “I am.” The highest statement of cognition must be an expression of that fact which is the means and ground for all cognition, namely, the goal of the I.
You see, you just don’t know I’m here to give you my heart And you want some fashion show
Jim Carroll
I felt my heart breaking all over again. Why? Why had this happened to us? Why was the universe so cruel?

Live an active life among people who are doing worthwhile things, keep eyes and ears and mind and heart open to absorb truth, and then tell of the things you know, as if you know them. The world will listen, for the world loves nothing so much as real life.
Dale Carnegie
Your heart is the face of your spirit, it holds everything you have been, you are, and what you are going to be.
Gary Busey
Friendship is constant in all other things Save in the office and affairs of love. Therefore all hearts in love use their own tongues. Let every eye negotiate for itself, And trust no agent; for beauty is a witch Against whose charms faith melteth into blood.
William Shakespeare
Love has no thought of self!
Love buys not with the ruthless usurer’s gold
The loathsome prostitution of a hand
Without a heart! Love sacrifices all things
To bless the thing it loves!
Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
In happy ignorance, I sighed for a world I did not know, where I hoped to find every pleasure and enjoyment which my heart could desire; and now, on my return from that wide world… how many disappointed hopes and unsuccessful plans have I brought back!
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Cold and silence. Nothing quieter than snow. The sky screams to deliver it, a hundred banshees flying on the edge of the blizzard. But once the snow covers the ground, it hushes as still as my heart.
Laurie Halse Anderson
If our hearts were truly pure, we would never have our fill of the words of your Lord
Uthman ibn Affan
At the heart of all beauty lies something inhuman, and these hills, the softness of the sky, the outline of these trees at this very minute lose the illusory meaning with which we had clothed them, henceforth more remote than a lost paradise . . . that denseness and that strangeness of the world is absurd.
Albert Camus
No other religion, no other, promises new bodies, hearts, and minds. Only in the gospel of Christ do hurting people find such incredible hope.
Joni Eareckson Tada
A woman after my own heart. (Stryker) You’re absolutely right about that. Nothing would please me more than ripping that organ out of you and feasting on it. (Zephyra)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
I’m pure at heart. It repels the dirt.
Cassandra Clare
Meditation is really quite simple. All we have to do is embrace each experience with awareness and open our hearts fully to the present moment. When we are completely at ease with our own being, the ripples of awareness naturally spread out in all directions, touching the lives of everyone we meet.
Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche
I’m a complete hypochondriac. If my heart starts beating a little faster than normal, I think I’m having an attack.
Antonio Banderas
A man may have the best of wealth, cars and fame. But there is nothing more precious in life that he will get than a woman’s heart.
Jean-Claude Van Damme

Few other griefs amid the ill chances of this world have more bitterness and shame for a man’s heart than to behold the love of a lady so fair and brave that cannot be returned.

Robert Henri
Alexia blinked stupidly at the Beta from around the earl’s upper arm. Her heart was doing crazy things, and she still could not locate her kneecaps. She took a deep breath and put some serious attention into tracking them down.
Gail Carriger
How can the heart travel to God, when it is chained by its desires?
Ibn Arabi
Do activities you’re passionate about – which make your heart and soul feel perky – including things like working out, cooking, painting, writing, yoga, hiking, walking, swimming, being in nature, being around art, or reading inspiring books.
Karen Salmansohn
In the great and deep qualities of mind, heart, and soul, there is no change. Homer and Solomon speak to the same nature in man that is reached by Shakespeare and Lincoln. but in the accidents, the surroundings, the change is vast. All things now are mobile–movable.
Rutherford B. Hayes
My mental approach is totally different. My coach predicated everything on defense. He always talked about defense, defense, defense. I took it to heart that if you play defense, you can take the heart from an offensive player.
Eric Williams
It was probably 10 at night when I started to read Donnie Darko. I get in bed and read the first page, and I go, “Hmmm. That’s interesting.” Second page, “Wow.” By the fourth page, my heart started to beat, and I knew. It makes me cry, because I knew I had found a classic film. You just know when you get certain material.
Beth Grant
The world calls for, and expects from us, simplicity of life, the spirit of prayer, charity towards all, especially towards the lowly and the poor, obedience and humility, detachment, and self-sacrifice. Without this mark of holiness, our word will have difficulty in touching the heart of modern man.
Pope Paul VI
Truth will never come into our minds so long as there will remain the faintest shadow of AhamkГўra (egotism). All of you should try to root out this devil from your heart. Complete self-surrender is the only way to spiritual illumination.
Swami Vivekananda
God, make me a man with thick skin and a soft heart. Make me a man who is tough and tender. Make me tough so I can handle life. Make me tender so I can love people. God, make me a man.

Newt Gingrich
Who, for the poor renown of being smart, Would leave a sting within a brother’s heart?
Edward Young
we don’t have to agree with each other in order to think well together. There is no need for us to be joined at the head. We are joined by our human hearts.
Margaret J. Wheatley
I am transparent An open book; There’s no choice in the matter But the breath from my mind Is living air, And the notes from my heart Are what I share. Words weren’t made for cowards.
Happy Rhodes
Humor is the easiest to achieve; the ‘heart’ is always the toughest, because you can’t tell people to feel a certain way.
John Lasseter
The magic doesn’t come from within the director’s mind, it comes from within the hearts of the actors.
James Cameron
Death and loss, they plague you. So do memories. Like the Mississippi’s incessant slap against the levees, they creep up with deceptive sweetness before grabbing your heart and pulling it under.
Karen White
We shall draw nearer to God, not by trying to avoid the sufferings inherent in all loves, but by accepting them and offering them to Him; throwing away all defensive armour. If our hearts need to be broken, and if He chooses this as the way in which they should break, so be it.
C. S. Lewis
I’m a musician at heart, I know I’m not really a singer. I couldn’t compete with real singers. But I sing because the public buys it.

Boris Pasternak
The older we become, the more difficult it is to fill our hearts with wonder. Only God is big enough to keep filling us with wonder.
Ravi Zacharias
I you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself, get a better mirror. Look a little closer, stare a little longer. Because there is something inside you that made you keep trying despite everyone who told you to quit. You built a cast around your broken heart and signed it yourself, you signed it THEY WERE WRONG.
Shane Koyczan
The heart and soul of loving yourself is integrity and the peace of conscience it inspires.
Stephen Covey
Men need history; it helps them to have an idea of who they are. But history, like sanctity, can reside in the heart; it is enough that there is something there.

Robert Louis Stevenson
Fine art is that in which the hand, the head, and the heart of man go together.
John Ruskin
I think that music, being an expression of the human heart, or of the human being itself, does express just what is happening – the whole of human experience at the particular time that it is being expressed.
John Coltrane
The battle over flesh and blood cannot compare to the battle for the heart.
Ted Dekker
Faith is not the clinging to a shrine but an endless pilgrimage of the heart.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
It’s the notion that there is no perfection – that there is a broken world and we live with broken hearts and broken lives but still there is no alibi for anything. On the contrary, you have to stand up and say hallelujah under those circumstances.
Leonard Cohen
As long as my heart’s still in it, I’ll keep going. If the passion’s there, why stop?
Dean Karnazes
You’ve got mountains of your own, I’ll bet on it. Take heart. Be encouraged. Remain steadfast. Hang on for dear life. You’ve got a better grip than you realize.
Adam Young
Love is not sexual intercourse. Love is not vital attraction and interchange. Love is not the heart’s hunger for affection. Love is a mighty vibration coming straight from the One. And only the very pure and very strong are capable of receiving and manifesting it.
Mirra Alfassa
Receive Communion often, very often…there you have the sole remedy, if you want to be cured. Jesus has not put this attraction in your heart for nothing.
Therese of Lisieux
She, as no other ever could, reached every corner of his heart. His joy, and his salvation.
Nora Roberts
Despair is not a particularly respectable condition and yet despair and delight alternate like systole and diastole in my heart.
Stephanie Mills
No evil propensity of the human heart is so powerful that it may not be subdued by discipline.
Seneca the Elder
I wanted to turn everything off, too. Just press a button – click – and shut myself down. Turn off my heart, turn off my mind, turn off my body – just lie there, senseless, like a dormant tree in winter, waiting for the spring to return.
Kevin Brooks
Water and stone Flesh and bone Night and morn Rose and thorn Tree and wind Heart and mind
Juliet Marillier
Weird itself, even in the dictionary, is just something that is different and unexplainable. A weirdo is someone who follows their heart. Im definitely weird, aint nothing wrong with that.
Kid Cudi
Let your heart beat for music. Don’t be a DJ for the wrong reasons, do it because you have a passion for it.
Jennifer Lee
At its most successful, my ‘touch’ looks into the heart of nature; most days I don’t even get close. These things are all part of a transient process that I cannot understand unless my touch is also transient – only in this way can the cycle remain unbroken and the process be complete.
Andy Goldsworthy
Your purpose gave birth to you. It has molded and shaped who you are and what you do. Your purpose is the reason you live and breathe. Your purpose guides your heart, hands, and head. It is alive in you. It is there, within, that you must seek to know it and live it.
Iyanla Vanzant
Only he can understand what a farm is, what a country is, who shall have sacrificed part of himself to his farm or country, fought to save it, struggled to make it beautiful. Only then will the love of farm or country fill his heart.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I think, ultimately you know in your heart how much work you’ve done. You know what you’re doing, if you’re being honest on stage or not. That’s all you being you. But when you acknowledges it – especially with a Tony Award nomination – you just can’t help with the guilty pleasure!
Laura Bell Bundy
I can’t fax you my love, I can’t email my heart.
Jimmy Buffett
The true colour of life is the colour of the body, the colour of the covered red, the implicit and not explicit red of the living heart and the pulses. It is the modest colour of the unpublished blood.
Alice Meynell
Invoking brings the heart closer to the hereafter and keeps the world away from the heart, even though the world is around it. Invoking warns the heedless heart to abandon its pleasures and deceptions.
Ibn Ata Allah
Half of our sorrows come from setting exalted standards for people and then breaking our hearts when they fail to live up to them.
Alice Hegan Rice
Expressing gratitude to our benefactors is a natural form of love. In fact, some people find loving kindness for themselves so hard, they begin their practice with a benefactor. This too is fine. The rule in loving kindness practice is to follow the way that most easily opens your heart.
Jack Kornfield
My favorite duo since Thelma and Louise. They got chops, heart, and soul stirring harmonies.
David Massengill
Ethiopia is engraved on my heart. I first went in 1973 because I heard of a terrible famine. They were denying it even as we got the film out. The coverage destroyed the emperor’s credibility.
Jonathan Dimbleby
Unlike curing cancer or heart disease, we already know how to beat hunger: food.
Mario Batali
I think we have to keep working enormously hard to see that every single Indigenous child – every Australian child – has true equality of opportunity. Weve got to work harder at it. I think, you know, the heartland issue for us is the gap; the gap in life expectancy in this country.
Quentin Bryce
We can understand the science of what makes a heart beat, but we can never stop it from breaking.
Beth Harbison
Christmas means ‘giving,’ and the gift without the giver is bare. Give of yourselves; give of your substance; give of your heart and mind.
Gordon B. Hinckley
There’s some advice for the next generation. If there’s a dream in your heart, never let anyone tell you you’ve got no talent. Get out there, embarrass yourself, and prove to the world you’ve got no talent. And then give up. ‘Cause not everyone can be a genius like me.
Murdoc Niccals
To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men that is genius.

Some wise being organized my system, and gave me my capacity, put into my heart and brain something that delights, charms, and fills me with rapture at the sound of sweet music.
Brigham Young
Three sparks – pride, envy, and avarice – have been kindled in all hearts.
Dante Alighieri
Our highest ambition is to be included in the stream of American life, to be permitted to “play the game” as any other American; and is opposed to anything that aids in the exclusion; the face may be Africa, but the heart has the beat of Wall Street.
Chester Himes
Whatever merit there is in anything that I have written is simply due to the fact that when I was a child my mother daily read me a part of the Bible and daily made me learn a part of it by heart.
John Ruskin
When freedom does not have a purpose, when it does not wish to know anything about the rule of law engraved in the hearts of men and women, when it does not listen to the voice of conscience, it turns against humanity and society.
Pope John Paul II
I understand Crawford paid you a visit?” “Yes.” “And was he attentive?” “Yes, very.” “And has your heart changed towards him?” “Yes. Several times. I have – I find that I – I find that-” “Shh. Surely you and I are beyond speaking when words are clearly not enough…. I missed you.” “And I you.
Jane Austen
All these things shall love do unto you
that you may know the secrets of your heart,
and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life’s heart.
Khalil Gibran
Lying is not only saying what isn’t true. It is also, in fact especially, saying more than is true and, in the case of the human heart, saying more than one feels. We all do it, every day, to make life simpler.
Albert Camus
If your motives aren’t clean, money itself becomes evil. But When we don’t have money enough evil, the world tells us we’re losers. So what determines our place in society is not how much kindness is in our hearts but how much evil is in our wallet.
Todd McFarlane
prayer is nothing more than thought. It is a yearning of the heart.
Sophy Burnham
Lord, I want to be up in my heart.
His heart hurt with the wanting of it, the hurt no less painful for being difficult to explain.

Franny Billingsley

L. Frank Baum
It isn’t up to me to break his heart; that’s time’s job.
Rick Yancey
Sooner or later a rider will emerge who will win more Tours. In every sport we have seen how the records eventually get broken and cycling is no exception.
Miguel Indurain
I always imagined music trapped inside my clarinet, not trapped inside of me. But what if music is what escapes when a heart breaks?
Jandy Nelson
Ralph Kramden, as played by Jackie Gleason, was this big bumbling New York City bus driver who was kind of mean and crass and a little bit egotistical. But underneath it all, he was a big heart looking for a place to land I think.
George Saunders
To learn to live from the heart it doesn’t just change our feeling about life, it actually changes our life.
Mary Morrissey
The sole concern of learning is to seek one’s original heart.
Happiness and unhappiness are in the heart and spirit of each one of us: If you feel unhappy, then place yourself above that and act so that your happiness does not get to be dependent on anything.
Catherine the Great
Thank you so much for breaking my heart because you got me four Grammys.
Sam Smith
Was there no safety? No learning by heart of the ways of the world? No guide, no shelter, but all was miracle, and leaping from the pinnacle of a tower into the air? Could it be, even for elderly people, that this was life?–startling, unexpected, unknown?
Virginia Woolf
Only a person with the true heart of a dictionary-writer would be lying in bed, three days after being stabbed in the gut, worrying about his P’s.
Kristin Cashore
I sing my heart out to the wide open spaces
I sing my heart out to the infinite sea
I sing my vision to the sky-high mountains
I sing my song to the free.

I suppose because our hearts are made in a certain way we cannot help being what we are.
Irina Tweedie
There are two tragedies in life. One is to lose your heart’s desire. The other is to gain it.
George Bernard Shaw
Air pollution is terrible for our children. Every single scientist, every single doctor will tell you the same thing: Air pollution damages our children’s brains, their hearts, and their lungs.
Julianne Moore
When your heart’s not open you can’t see what you’ve got.
In fact he enables us not by making us supernaturally strong, but by opening our eyes. The Holy Spirit is that power which opens eyes that are closed, hearts that are unaware and minds that shrink from too much reality.
John Taylor
At the heart of all beauty lies something inhuman.
Albert Camus
What is a family without love? And by family I don’t just mean a packed kitchen table with a hoard of children around it. A family can be made up of any number of people. Me and my fiancee are our own little family, a family of two (and the dog!), and our love is at the heart of that.
No amount of trying to inhale one more shred of inspiration is going to make it any easier to put your heart and soul out there.
Christine Kane
He who cannot see the beautiful side is a bad painter, a bad friend, a bad lover; he cannot lift his mind and his heart so high as goodness.
Joseph Joubert
If believing absurd falsehoods increase the odds of getting laid or avoiding predators, your brain will believe those falsehoods with all its metaphorical little heart.
Peter Watts
I will never have a heart attack. I give them.
George Steinbrenner
It is better to be the recipient of violence than the inflicter of it, since the latter only multiplies the existence of violence and bitterness in the universe, while the former may develop a sense of shame in the opponent, and thereby bring about a transformation and change of heart.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
It is a wretched thing that the young men of today are so contriving and so proud of their material posessions. Men with contriving hearts are lacking in duty. Lacking in duty, they will have no self-respect.
Yamamoto Tsunetomo
…every person has a star, every star has a friend, and for every person carrying a star there is someone else who reflects it, and everyone carries this reflection like a secret confidante in the heart.
Orhan Pamuk
I would stare at the grains of light suspended in that silent space, struggling to see into my own heart. What did I want? And what did others want from me? But I could never find the answers. Sometimes I would reach out and try to grasp the grains of light, but my fingers touched nothing.
Haruki Murakami
The heart that feels music will feel people
Shinichi Suzuki
What a blessed habit I have found my prayer list, morning by morning, it takes me via the Throne of all Grace straight to the intimate personal heart of each one mentioned here, and I know that He Who is not prescribed by time and geography answers immediately.
Oswald Chambers
Hold the sadness and pain of samsara in your heart and at the same time the power and vision of the Great Eastern Sun. Then the warrior can make a proper cup of tea.
Chogyam Trungpa
[Barack Obama] and Michelle, in my heart, this is my personal feeling, epitomize what my mother and my father were. They are community organizers on a global level.
Malaak Shabazz
Love is the crowning grace of humanity, the holiest right of the soul, the golden link which binds us to duty and truth, the redeeming principle that chiefly reconciles the heart to life, and is prophetic of eternal good.
We act, though, not under a utopian illusion that you or I or anyone or everyone together can rid this world of pain and suffering. That responsibility belongs to the resurrected Christ, and he will do it when he returns. But until that day, we do with an undivided heart whatever God calls us to do.
David Platt
The key to a woman’s heart is an unexpected gift at an unexpected time.
Sean Connery
My father’s motto has always been ‘Room in the heart, room in the house.’ As charming as this sounds, it translates into a long line for the bathroom and extra loads of laundry for my mother.
Firoozeh Dumas
My heart is mysteriously alive in the world of sounds – a totally different dimension from the daily life.
Yoko Ono
I am convinced that we must train not only the head, but the heart and hand as well.
Soong May-ling
I said, God, the press and people, they just really hate me and I’m really trying. Geraldine Page said, Listen to this, Tab. If people don’t like you, that’s their bad taste.
Tab Hunter
Teachers inspire the smallest hearts to grow big enough to change the world.
Paula Fox
I don’t want to achieve immortality through my work; I want to achieve immortality through not dying. I don’t want to live on in the hearts of my countrymen; I want to live on in my apartment.
Woody Allen
Repentance is something that is brought about in the human heart by the work of God the Holy Spirit.
R. C. Sproul
It is not a zero sum game. The simple idea of the gains from trade lies at the heart of the modern and the ancient economy, not the power of capital. There is nothing else to it.
Matt Ridley
I like to bless people and do things without the world knowing about it, because I’m not in it for the glory. I do it because it comes from my heart. As long as I keep doing that, I’m satisfied.
Adrian Peterson
We don’t have to have blood relations in order to be brothers and sisters. Flesh and blood, those are just things that we’re made of. In a real family, what matters is our hearts. We care, show concern and love. Anyone can be family too.
Kim Da-hyun
When we turn to our innate wisdom for the harmony of mind and gut, we heal the entrance to the heart as it seeks to beat in rhythm with the world.
Stephen Levine
Cardiac depression is very powerful, it’s very black, it’s very dark. What I’ve learned to do is get out of my head and get into my heart. And it just sounds like an easy thing – it was difficult at first – to truly recognize moment to moment how fortunate I am.
Robby Benson
Places: a cold, bleak, lonely day on the rim at Muley Point, Utah. And the heart-cracking loveliness of the blood-smeared, bitter, incomprehensible slaughterhouse of a world.
Edward Abbey
The poem is a cry of the unborn heart. Yes, because the poem perfectly embodies the world, there is no world without poem.
E. L. Doctorow
True prayer is the trading of the heart with God.
Charles Spurgeon
What is genius or courage without a heart?
Oliver Goldsmith
When human hearts break and human hearts despair, then from the twilight of the past the great conquerors of distress and care, of disgrace and misery, of spiritual slavery and physical compulsion, look down on them and hold out their eternal hands to the despairing mortals.
Adolf Hitler
There are so many people in the world with so many different perspectives. But ultimately, at the heart of it, they’re people.
Dave Sitek
When we feel that old spirit of complaining start to bubble up in our hearts, we need to remind ourselves to take time to thank God for His blessings.
David Jeremiah
Rage-the biggest, truest rage of her adult life-had invaded her like a fever, but it wasn’t like any fever she had known previously. It circulated like weird serum, cold on the right side of her body, then hot on the left, where her heart was. It seemed to come nowhere near her head, which remained clear.
Stephen King
When you heart is ablaze with the love of God, when you love other people – especially the ripsnorting sinners – so much that you dare to tell them about Jesus with no apologies, then never fear, there will be results.
Catherine Marshall
We see clear evidence repeated in many studies that higher intake of trans fats is associated with higher risk of heart disease, and with many other conditions, such as diabetes and infertility.
Walter Willett
Relationships are like a dance, with visible energy racing back and forth between the partners. Some relationships are the slow, dark dance of death.
Colette Dowling
At heart, he could not abide sense in women: he liked to see them as silly, as light-headed, as vain, as open to ridicule as possible; because they were then in reality what he held them to be, and wished them to be,–inferior: toys to play with, to amuse a vacant hour and to be thrown away.
Charlotte Bronte
It is the heart that has been pierced that feels the most.
Jocelyn Murray
I forget that he is another person; instead it feels like he is another part of me, just as essential as a heart or an eye or an arm.
Veronica Roth
But can they [great works] get rid of the worm that lies gnawing at the roots of my heart? No, never.
Edvard Munch
Christ gives peace to the most sinful and miserable that come to Him. He heals the broken in heart and binds up their wounds.
Jonathan Edwards
Love, who is most beautiful among the immortal gods, the melter of limbs, overwhelms in their hearts the intelligence and wise counsel of all gods and all men.
Within, I do not find wrinkles and used heart, but unspent youth.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Before birth; yes, what time was it then? A time like now, and when they were dead, it would be still like now: these trees, that sky, this earth, those acorn seeds, sun and wind, all the same, while they, with dust-turned hearts, change only.
Truman Capote
In many ways, being honest about ‘Huckleberry Finn’ goes right to the heart of whether we can be honest about our heritage and our identity as Americans.
Jane Smiley
We ought to feel in our hearts that God is our Father, and that while we make mistakes and are weak yet if we live as nearly perfect as we can all will be well with us.
Lorenzo Snow
We need somebody who’s got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it’s like to be a young teenage mom, the empathy to understand what it’s like to be poor or African-American or gay or disabled or old – and that’s the criterion by which I’ll be selecting my judges.
Barack Obama
A woman’s heart is a deep ocean of secrets.
Gloria Stuart
A crushing hurt comes to our heart and the sympathizing, scarred hand of Christ presses the wound; and just for a moment,the pain seems to intensify,…bu t finally the bleeding stops.

Too much reasoning has spoiled the contemporary mind. People have lost their hearts and faith.
Mata Amritanandamayi
Hearts that are delicate and kind and tongues that are neither – these make the finest company in the world.
Logan Pearsall Smith
The strength that we want is not a brute, unregulated strength; the beauty that we want is no mere surface beauty; but we want a beauty on the surface of life that is from the central force of principle within, as the beauty on the cheek of health is from the central force at the heart.
Mark Hopkins
The solution to this problem lies in the heart of mankind.
Albert Einstein
Wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.
Khalil Gibran
To my thinking, a great librarian must have a clear head, a strong hand, and, above all, a great heart. And when I look into the future, I am inclined to think that most of the men who achieve this greatness will be women.
Melvil Dewey
I got a lot of heart. I am going to give it my all every day. I have no excuses. I come prepared every day. I put it in the hard work.
David Wilkerson
Then you think that one can keep a hopeless love in one’s heart for so long as that?…And that life can breathe upon it every day, without extinguishing it?
Andre Gide
If it makes you laugh, if it makes you cry, if it rips out your heart, that’s a good picture.
Eddie Adams
I truly love being an actor. I love it with all my heart and soul, and I hope that I get to do it for a very long time.
Chris Klein
For the poison of hatred seated near the heart doubles the burden for the one who suffers the disease; he is burdened with his own sorrow, and groans on seeing another’s happiness.
Real men don’t do pickup lines just to sweep off every girls’ feet. They do and trust their own instincts knowing what the girls’ wants and needs. Vying to win their hearts.
Jean Kerr
Your life feels different on you, once you greet death and understand your heart’s position. You wear your life like a garment from the mission bundle sale ever after – lightly because you realize you never paid nothing for it, cherishing because you know you won’t ever come by such a bargain again.
Louise Erdrich
Stay, stay at home, my heart and rest; Home-keeping hearts are happiest.

Acceptance does not mean inaction. We may need to respond, strongly at times…From a peaceful center we can respond instead of react. Unconscious reactions create problems. Considered responses bring peace. With a peaceful heart whatever happens can be met with wisdom…Peace is not weak; it is unshakable.
Jack Kornfield

Stormie Omartian
Am I as spontaneously kind to God as I used to be, or am I only expecting God to be kind to me? Am I full of the little things that cheer His heart over me, or am I whimpering because things are going hardly with me? There is no joy in the soul that has forgotten what God prizes.
Oswald Chambers
Far better one unpurchased heart than glory’s proudest name.
Henry Theodore Tuckerman

All the windows of my heart I open to the day.
John Greenleaf Whittier
I try to live my life as honestly as I can, and the last thing I want is to pretend to be something I’m not. To pretend to myself I am a sex symbol would somehow be dishonest. I’d feel, in my heart, that I were behaving artificially and that’s the last thing I want to do.
Cherie Lunghi
The desire to kill is like the desire to attack another with an ingot of red -hot iron: I have to pick up the incandescent metal and burn my own hand while burning the other. Hate itself is the seed of death in my own heart, while it seeks the death of the other.

How did the rose ever open its heart and give to this world all of its beauty? It felt the encouragement of Light against its being; otherwise we all remain too frightened.
Black people still call me Prince. Sometimes I ask them, “Why do you call me Prince?” And people say, “Because you are a prince to us.” Usually when they say that, you know my heart goes out and I have to say, “I don’t mind your calling me that.”

Ruth Behar
Ever since my children were born, the moment I looked at them I was crazy about them. Once I held them I was hooked. I am addicted to my children sir. I love them with all my heart and the idea of someone telling me I can’t be with them, I can’t see them everyday. Well, it’s like someone saying I can’t have air.
Robin Williams
I don’t know who will lead us through the ’90s, but they must be made to speak to this spiritual vacuum at the heart of American society, this tumor of the soul.
Lee Atwater

Gerard Depardieu
I have become so great as I am because I have won men’s hearts by gentleness and kindliness.
I remember how beautiful the Merrimac looked to me in childhood, the first true river I ever knew; it opened upon my sight and wound its way through my heart like a dream realized; its harebells, its rocks, and its rapids, are far more fixed in my memory than anything about the sea.
Lucy Larcom
I knew that my father was going to die of heart disease, and I was trying to make a heart for him.
Robert Jarvik
Then I played the song that hides in the center of me. That wordless music that moves through the secret places in my heart. I played it carefully, strumming it slow and low into the dark stillness of the night. I would like to say it is a happy song, that it is sweet and bright, but it is not.

Youth is no less vulnerable, by the very quality it has of making the heart ache that beholds and has lost it.

Till we meet shall pant for you.

The law of dislike for the unlike will always prevail. And whereas the unlike is normally situated at a safe distance, the Jews bring the unlike into the heart of every milieu, and must there defend a frontier line as large as the world.
Israel Zangwill
Everyday, every hour, I have held you close in my heart.
Elizabeth Chandler
Oh my love, it’s you that I dream of
Oh my love, since that day
Somewhere in my heart I’m always
Dancing with you in the summer rain

James Madison
All the laws and legislation in the world will never heal this world like the loving hearts and arms of mothers and fathers. If every child could drift to sleep feeling wrapped in the love of their family – and God’s love – this world would be a far more gentle and better place.
Mitt Romney
And this is the mission of the church–not civilization, but salvation–not better laws, purer legislation, social elevation, human equality and liberty, but first, the “kingdom of God and His righteousness;” regenerated hearts, and all other things will follow.
Abbott Eliot Kittredge
I am sending back the key that let me into bluebeard’s study; because he would make love to me I am sending back the key; in his eye’s darkroom I can see my X-rayed heart, dissected body: I am sending back the key that let me into bluebeard s study.

Winston Churchill
There comes a holy
and transparent time

of beauty
opens the heart
to tears.
This is the time
the Beloved of heaven
is brought tenderly on earth.
This is the time
of the opening
of the ROSE.

Reggie McNeal
It is not the body’s posture, but the heart’s attitude that counts when we pray.
Billy Graham
Odd that the brain could function on its own, without acquainting him with its purposes, its reasons. But the brain was an organ, like the spleen, heart, kidneys. And they went about their private activities. So why not the brain?

Charles Stross
All the kindness which a man puts out into the world works on the heart and thoughts of mankind.
Albert Schweitzer
An event in the present evokes past sensations. But science couldn’t explain how a foolish heart had the power to overrule common sense.
Susan Wiggs
Worship is so much more than the songs I sing. Instead, worship is in the heart that lifts the song. If you think about it, worship began when I woke up this morning. My life purpose is to give God glory through everything I do. If my life does not worship Him, my songs don’t either.
Mark Hall
The true Church is not an institution to be kept apart from the world because the world “is common and unclean,” but a vital heart of truth and love, beating with the life of Jesus, and sending abroad its sanctifying pulsations until nothing shall be common and unclean.

Smile from your heart; nothing is more beautiful than a woman who is happy to be herself.
Kubra Sait
The joy in life is his who has the heart to demand it.

But you cannot know a place without loving it and hating it and feeling everything in between. You cannot understand a complex people by only looking at data—something inside you has to crack to let in the light so your eyes and brain and heart can adjust properly.
Silas House
When life does not find a singer to sing her heart she produces a philosopher to speak her mind.
Khalil Gibran

Jawaharlal Nehru
To keep our hearts open is probably the most urgent responsibility you have as you get older.
Leonard Cohen
You can legislate many conditions-but you cannot legislate harmony into the hearts of men. To attain industrial peace, we need more than by-laws and compulsory rules.
Clarence Francis
A heartsong doesn’t have to be a song in your heart. It doesn’t have to be talking about love and peace. It can just be your message. It can be your feeling. Some people might even call it a conscience, even though that’s not really what it is. It’s your message, what you feel like you need to do.
Mattie Stepanek
I promise to keep you happy, safe, and in love – for as long as my heart wakes; and as much as you soul takes.
Prashant Chopra
When an answer I did not expect comes to a prayer which I believed I truly meant, I shrink back from it; if the burden my Lord asks me to bear be not the burden of my heart’s choice, and I fret inwardly and do not welcome His will, then I know nothing of Calvary love.
Amy Carmichael
All I ever wanted was to reach out and touch another human being not just with my hands but with my heart.
Tahereh Mafi

Dick Dale
And I have a tender spot in my heart for cripples and bastards and broken things.
George R. R. Martin
A true evangelist is almost as great a rarity as a true pastor. Alas! Alas! How rare are both! The two are closely connected. The evangelist gathers the sheep; the pastor feeds and cares for them. The work of each lies very near the heart of Christ- [Who Is] The Divine Evangelist and Pastor.
Charles Henry Mackintosh
It took me a long time and most of the world to learn what I know about love and fate and the choices we make, but the heart of it came to me in an instant, while I was chained to a wall and being tortured.
Gregory David Roberts
Love, from its awful throne of patient power
In the wise heart, from the last giddy hour
Of dread endurance, from the slippery, steep,
And narrow verge of crag-like agony, springs
And folds over the world its healing wings.
Percy Bysshe Shelley

In all our Yogas this renunciation is necessary. This is the stepping-stone and the real centre and the real heart of all spiritual culture – renunciation. This is religion – renunciation.
Swami Vivekananda
I claim to know my millions. All the hours of the day I am with them. They are my first care and God that is to be found in the hearts of the dumb millions.
Mahatma Gandhi
Every eye sees its own special vision; every ear hears a most different song. In each man’s troubled heart, an incision would reveal a unique, shameful wrong.

Khalil Gibran

Mary Anne Radmacher
God takes that which is nothing and makes something out of it. When you become a Christian, you cannot patch your Christianity onto your old life. You are to start over. Accept God’s call as a promotion. Burn the old bridges and fix it so you cannot go back ; then serve God with all your heart.

Lord Byron
I always had this dream to make a solo record. I told my mom when I was 7 years old, but I just ended up being in bands. I’m a free spirit. I follow my heart, and it’s led me to where I am.

Nora Roberts
In order to live fully we may need to look deeply at our own suffering and at the suffering of others. In the depths of every wound we have survived is the strength we need to live. The wisdom our wounds can offer us is a place of refuge. Finding this is not for the faint of heart. But then, neither is life.
Rachel Naomi Remen

Francois de La Rochefoucauld
He who is ready to despair in solitary peril, plucks up a heart in the presence of another. In a plurality of comrades is much countenance and consolation.
Herman Melville
I remembered suddenly that Aspen had always been this way. He sacrificed sleep for me, he risked getting caught out after curfew for me, he scrounged together pennies for me.

R.L. LaFevers
What a vast fraternity it is,–that of ‘Hearts that Ache.’ For the last three months it has seemed to me as though all society were coming to me, to drop its mask for a moment and initiate me into the mystery. How we do suffer! And we go on laughing; for, as a practical joke at our expense, life is a success.
Henry Adams

Everything that is loved, if it is not loved for His sake then this love is nothing but distress and punishment. Every action that is not performed for His sake then it is wasted and severed. Every heart that does not reach Him is wretched; veiled from achieving its success and happiness.

Nicholas Sparks
The heart of another is a dark forest, always, no matter how close it has been to one’s own.

My feet might fail me, my heart might ail me,
The synagogues of Satan might accuse or jail me,
Strip, crown, nail me, brimstone hail me…
They might defeat the flesh but they could never ever kill me.
They might feel the music but could never ever feel me.
Jay Electronica
When I was a child I accidentally made a chemical bomb. I also ate my grandfather’s heart pills. I got my stomach pumped for that one. I got over that so by the time I hit my teens I was kind of mild. Now I’m like an old lady who occasionally parties real hard.

Anthony de Mello
I recognise no God except the God that is to be found in the hearts of the dumb millions.
Mahatma Gandhi
Each day millions of children arrive in American classrooms in search of more than reading and math skills. They are looking for a light in the darkness of their lives, a Good Samaritan who will stop and bandage a bruised heart or ego.

Pondering was the highest vocation… Pondering was a special kind of thinking. It was not done in the mind, that chilly place, but in the heart, where the real mystery of intelligence – intuition – rather than thought lay catlike and feminine, ready to pounce.
Patricia Hampl
Love is connected to the heart. When the Name of God Allah is synchronized with the heartbeat, it then travels through the blood to all the veins, reaches the spirits and awakens them. Then the spirits are rejuvenated and go into the Love of God.

Men’s hearts are being searched…it is a tremendous sifting time, not only of actions but of inner motives. Nothing can escape the all-searching eye of God.
Frank Bartleman

Victor Hugo
It is cheerful to God when you rejoice or laugh from the bottom of your heart.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Prayer and love are really learned in the hour when prayer becomes impossible and your heart turns to stone.

We made mad love shadow love random love and abandoned love. Accidentally like a martyr. The hurt gets worse, and the heart gets harder.
Warren Zevon
Because I trust in the ever-changing climate of the heart. (At least, today I feel that way.) I think it is necessary to have many experiences for the sake of feeling something; for the sake of being challenged, and for the sake of being expressive, to offer something to someone else, to learn what we are capable of.
Jason Mraz
If you want this life to stop breaking your heart, stop giving your heart to this life.
