My heart resembles the ocean; has storm, and ebb and flow; and many a beautiful pearl lies hid in its depths below.
      - Heinrich Heine

In thy heart there is a holy spot,
  As 'mid the waste an isle of fount and palm,
    Forever green!--the world's breath enters not,
      The passion-tempest may not break its calm,
        'Tis thine, all thine.
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans

The heart is always young only in the recollection of those whom it has loved in youth.
      - Arsene Houssaye

The heart is a small thing, but desireth great matters. It is not sufficient for a kite's dinner, yet the whole world is not sufficient for it.

Some people's hearts are shrunk in them, like dried nuts. You can hear 'em rattle as they walk.
      - Douglas William Jerrold

How small, of all that human hearts endure, that part which laws or kings can cause or cure.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

The heart echoes the words of love.
      - Baroness Barbara Juliane de Krudener

Oh, no! my heart can never be
  Again in lightest hopes the same;
    The love that lingers there for thee
      Hath more of ashes than of flame.
      - Letitia Elizabeth Landon (Mrs. George MacLean)

The heart that has once been bathed in love's pure fountain retains the pulse of youth forever.
      - Walter Savage Landor

All who know their own minds know not their own hearts.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

The head is ever the dupe of the heart.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

When the heart is still agitated by the remains of a passion, we are more ready to receive a new one than when we are entirely cured.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

The head is always the dupe of the heart.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld, Maxims
         (no. 105)

The less heart, the more comfort.
      - Ninon de L'Enclos (real name Anne L'Enclos)

When the heart dares to speak, it needs no preparation.
  [Ger., Wo das Herz reden darf braucht es keiner Vorbereitung.]
      - Ephraim Gotthold Lessing,
        Mina von Barnhelm (V, 4)

As the heart is, so is love to the heart. It partakes of its strength or weakness, its health or disease.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Home-keeping hearts are happiest.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The poor too often turn away unheard,
  From hearts that shut against them with a sound
    That will be heard in heaven.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Something the heart must have to cherish,
  Must love, and joy, and sorrow learn;
    Something with passion clasp, or perish,
      And in itself to ashes burn.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Hyperion
         (bk. II, introduction)

For his heart was in his work, and the heart
  Giveth grace unto every Art.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
        The Building of the Ship (l. 7)

The very gnarliest and hardest of hearts has some musical strings in it; but they are tuned differently in every one of us.
      - James Russell Lowell

The human heart is like a millstone in a mill: when you put wheat under it, it turns and grinds and bruises the wheat to flour; if you put no wheat, it still grinds on, but then 'tis itself it grinds and wears away.
      - Martin Luther

Do you think that any one can move the heart but He that made it?
      - John Lyly (Lylie or Lyllie)

Better to have the poet's heart than brain,
  Feeling than song.
      - George MacDonald, With and Without
         (pt. III, sc. 9, l. 30)

The heart of a woman is never so full of affection that there does not remain a little corner for flattery and love.
      - Pierre Carlet de Chamblain de Mariavux
