Nonviolence is not a garment to be put on and off at will. Its seat is in the heart, and it must be an inseparable part of our being.
The memory of past favors is like a rainbow, bright, vivid, and beautiful; but it soon fades away. The in memory of injuries is engraved on the heart, and remains forever.
No evil propensity of the human heart is so powerful that it may not be subdued by discipline.
That discipline which corrects the eagerness of worldly passions, which fortifies the heart with virtuous principles, which enlightens the mind with useful knowledge, and furnishes to it matter of enjoyment from within itself, is of more consequence to real felicity than all the provisions which we can make of the goods of fortune.
Culture of the mind must be subservient to the heart.
Nobody needs a smile so much as the one who has none to give. So get used to smiling heart-warming smiles, and you will spread sunshine in a sometimes dreary world.
A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles.
When a writer knows home in his heart, his heart must remain subtly apart from it. He must always be a stranger to the place he loves, and its people.
You don't die of a broken heart, you only wish you did.
It is a curious sensation: the sort of pain that goes mercifully beyond our powers of feeling. When your heart is broken, your boats are burned: nothing matters any more. It is the end of happiness and the beginning of peace.”
A broken heart is what makes life so wonderful five years later, when you see that special guy in an elevator and he is fat and smoking and saying 'Long time no see'
In Sleep we lie all naked and alone, in Sleep we are united at the heart of night and darkness, and we are strange and beautiful asleep; for we are dying the darkness and we know no death.
The night has a thousand eyes,And the day but one;Yet the light of the bright world dies With the dying sun. The mind has a thousand eyes,And the heart but one:Yet the light of a whole life dies When love is done.
By embracing your mother wound as your yoga, you transform what has been a hindrance in your life into a teacher of the heart.
Yoga is about clearing away whatever is in us that prevents our living in the most full and whole way. With yoga, we become aware of how and where we are restricted -- in body, mind, and heart -- and how gradually to open and release these blockages. As these blockages are cleared, our energy is freed. We start to feel more harmonious, more at one with ourselves. Our lives begin to flow -- or we begin to flow more in our lives.
No one knows how it is that with one glance a boy can break through into a girl's heart.
A boy is a magical creature-you can lock him out of your workshop, but you can't lock him out of your heart.
The prejudices of men emanate from the mind, and may be overcome; the prejudices of women emanate from the heart and are impregnable.
Vanity is so secure in the heart of man that everyone wants to be admired: even I who write this, and you who read this
I know I am but summer to your heart, and not the full four seasons of the year.
A speech is poetry: cadence, rhythm, imagery, sweep! A speech reminds us that words, like children, have the power to make dance the dullest beanbag of a heart
What heart can think, or tongue express,
The harm that groweth of idleness?
If you canít find it in your own heart to be compassionate look in someone else's before giving up on love altogether.
Compassion, the fairest associate of the heart.
There never was any heart truly great and generous, that was not also tender and compassionate.
