The full heart knows no rhetoric of words.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

The human heart is like heaven; the more angels the more room.
      - Fredrika Bremer

There are treasures laid up in the heart--treasures of charity, piety, temperance, and soberness. These treasures a men takes with him beyond death, when he leaves this world.
      - Buddhist Scriptures

A woman too often reasons from her heart; hence two-thirds of her mistakes and her troubles.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

There is in the heart of woman such a deep well of love that no age can freeze it.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

The heart, when broken, is like sweet gums and spices when beaten; for as such cast their fragrant scent into the nostrils of men, so the heart, when broken, casts its sweet smell into the nostrils of God.
      - John Bunyan

The heart aye's the part aye
  That makes us right or wrang.
      - Robert Burns

Who made the heart, 'tis He alone,
  Decidedly can try us,
    He knows each chord--its various tone
      Each spring its various bias:
        Then at the balance let's be mute,
          We never can adjust it;
            What's done we partly may compute,
              But know not what's resisted.
      - Robert Burns

My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here;
  My heart's in the Highlands a-chasing the deer.
      - Robert Burns, My Heart's in the Highlands,
        from an old song, "The Strong Winds of Derry"

Alas! there is no instinct like the heart!
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

In aught that tries the heart, how few withstand the proof.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

The heart is like the sky, apart of heaven,
  But changes, night and day, too, like the sky;
    Now o'er it clouds and thunder must be driven,
      And darkness and destruction as on high;
        But when it hath been scorch'd and pierc'd and riven,
          Its storms expire in water-drops; the eye
            Pours forth, at last, the heart's blood turn'd to tears.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

The heart will break, yet broken live on.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

His heart was one of those which most enamour us,
  Wax to receive, and marble to retain.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Beppo (st. 34)

Maid of Athens, ere we part,
  Give, oh, give me back my heart!
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Maid of Athens (st. 1)

The heart is an astrologer that always divines the truth.
      - Pedro Calderon de la Barca

It is the heart always that sees, before the head can see.
      - Thomas Carlyle

Soul of fibre and heart of oak.
  [Sp., Alma de esparto y corazon de encina.]
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra),
        Don Quixote (II, 70)

My heart is wax to be moulded as she pleases, but enduring as marble to retain.
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra),
        The Little Gypsy

If you should take the human heart and listen to it, it would be like listening to a sea-shell; you would hear in it the hollow murmur of the infinite ocean to which it belongs, from which it draws its profoundest inspiration, and for which it yearns.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

What a proof of the Divine tenderness is there in the human heart itself, which is the organ and receptacle oft so many sympathies! When we consider how exquisite are those conditions by which it is even made capable of so much suffering--the capabilities of a child's heart, of a mother's heart,--what must be the nature of Him who fashioned its depths, and strung its chords.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

The heart is like the tree that given balm for the wounds of man only when the iron has pierced it.
      - Francois August Rene de Chateaubriand, Vicomte de Chateaubriand

No command of art,
  No toil, can help you hear;
    Earth's minstrelsy falls clear
      But on the listening heart.
      - John Vance Cheney, The Listening Heart

Men, as well as women, are oftener led by their hearts than their understandings. The way to the heart is through the senses; please their eyes and ears, and the work is half done.
      - 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope

A human heart can never grow old if it takes a lively interest in the pairing of birds, the reproduction of flowers, and the changing tints of autumn leaves.
      - Mrs. Lydia Maria Child
