Memory, wit, fancy, acuteness, cannot grow young again in old age; but the heart can.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

Oh, if the loving, closed heart of a good woman should open before a man, how much controlled tenderness, how many veiled sacrifices and dumb virtues, would be seen reposing there!
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

When the heart of man is serene and tranquil, he wants to enjoy nothing but himself; every movement, even corporeal movement, shakes the brimming nectar cup too rudely.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

Mind is the partial side of men; the heart is everything.
      - Antoine de Rivarol, Comte de Rivarol

The heart of woman never grows old; when it has ceased to love, it has ceased to live.
      - Rochepedre

Alas! that we must dwell--my heart and I--so far asunder.
      - Christina Georgina Rossetti

My heart is like a singing bird
  Whose nest is in a water'd shoot;
    My heart is like an apple-tree
      Whose boughs are bent with thick-set fruit;
        My heart is like a rainbow shell
          That paddles in a halcyon sea;
            My heart is gladder than all these,
              Because my love is come to me.
      - Christina Georgina Rossetti, A Birthday

Malebranche would have it that not a soul is left; we humbly think that there still are hearts.
  [Fr., Malebranche dirait qu'il n'y a plus une ame:
    Nous pensons humblement qu'il reste encor des coeurs.]
      - Edmond Rostand, Chanticleer--Prelude

Nothing is less in our power than the heart, and, far from commanding it, we are forced to obey it.
      - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

To try to conceal our own heart is a bad means to read that of others.
      - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

It is always a poor way of reading the hearts of others to try to conceal our own.
  [Fr., C'est toujours un mauvais moyen de lire dans le coeur des autres que d'affecter de cacher le sien.]
      - Jean-Jacques Rousseau,
        The Confessions of Jean Jacques Rousseau

A human heart is a skein of such imperceptibly and subtly interwoven threads that even the owner of it is often himself at a loss how to unravel it.
      - Giovanni Ruffini

The heart is like a musical instrument of many strings, all the chords of which require putting in harmony.
      - Moslih Eddin (Muslih-un-Din) Saadi (Sadi)

O heart! love is thy bane and thy antidote.
      - George Sand (pseudonym of Mme. Armandine Lucile Dupon Dudevant)

It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us fathers and sons.
  [Ger., Nicht Fleisch und Blut; das Herz macht uns zu Vatern und Sohnen.]
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller,
        Die Rauber (I, 1)

Nothing affects the heart like that which is purely from itself, and of its own nature; such as the beauty of sentiments, the grace of actions, the turn of characters, and the proportions and features of a human mind.
      - Lord Shaftesbury, 3rd Earl of Shaftesbury (Anthony Ashley Cooper)

All offences come from the heart.
      - William Shakespeare

I will wear my heart upon my sleeve
  For daws to peck at; I am not what I am.
      - William Shakespeare

A good heart 'is worth gold.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Hostess Quickly at IV, ii)

Even at this sight
  My heart is turned to stone; and while 'tis mine,
    It shall be stony.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part II
         (Young Clifford at V, ii)

From this moment
  The very firstlings of my heart shall be
    The firstlings of my hand. And even now,
      To crown my thoughts with acts, be it thought and done:
        The castle of MacDuff I will surprise,
          Seize upon Fife, give to th' edge th' sword
            His wife, his babes, and all unfortunate souls
              That trace him in his line.
      - William Shakespeare, Macbeth
         (Macbeth at IV, i)

He hath a heart as sound as a bell; and his tongue is the clapper, for what his heart thinks, his tongue speaks.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Much Ado About Nothing
         (Pedro at III, ii)

In following him, I follow myself;
  Heaven is my judge, not I for love and duty,
    But seeming so, for my peculiar end;
      For when my outward action doth demonstrate
        The native at and figure of my heart
          In compliment extern, 'tis not long after
            But I will wear my heart upon my sleeve
              For daws to peck at; I am not what I am.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Iago at I, i)

A good leg will fall, a straight back will stoop, a black beard will turn white, a curled pate will grow bald, a fair face will wither, a full eye will wax hollow; but a good heart, Kate, is the sun and the moon; or rather, the sun, and not the moon, for it shines brights and never changes, but keeps his course truly.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (King Henry at V, ii)

My heart is a lonely hunter that hunts on a lonely hill.
      - William Sharp (used pseudonym Fiona McLeod)
