Heart Quotes

O happy hours when I may once more encircle within these arms the dearest object of my love- when I shall again feel the pressure of that 'aching head' which will delight to recline upon my bosom, when I may again press to my heart which palpitates with the purest affection that loved one who has so long shared its undivided devotion

Alexander Hamilton Rice

In every community there is work to be done. In every nation, there are wounds to heal. In every heart there is the power to do it.

Marianne Williamson

I would have rummaged, ransacked at the word; Those old odd corners of an empty heart; For remnants of dim love the long disused, And dusty crumbling of romance!

Robert Browning

When you meet a man, you judge him by his clothes; when you leave, you judge him by his heart

Russian Proverb

I feel within me the future life. I am like a forest that has been razed; the new shoots are stronger and brisker. I shall most certainly rise toward the heavens. The sun's rays bathe my head. The earth gives me its generous sap, but the heavens illuminate me with the reflection of-of worlds unknown. Some say the soul results merely from bodily powers. Why, then, does my soul become brighter when my bodily powers begin to waste away? Winter is above me, but eternal spring is within my heart. I inhale even now the fragrance of lilacs, violets, and roses, just as I did when I was twenty. The nearer my approach to the end, the plainer is the sound of immortal symphonies of worlds which invite me. It is wonderful yet simple. It is a fairy tale; it is history. For half a century I have been writing my thoughts in prose and in verse; history, philosophy, drama, romance, tradition, satire, ode, and song; all of these have I tried. But I feel that I haven't given utterance to the thousandth part of what lies within me. When I go to the grave I can say as others have said, "I have finished my day's work." But I cannot say, "I have finished my life." My day's work will begin again the next morning. The tomb is not a blind alley; it is a thoroughfare. It closes on the twilight, but opens on the dawn.

Victor Marie Hugo

I feel my heart break to see a nation ripped apart by it's own greatest strength--it's diversity.

Melissa Etheridge

You don't die of a broken heart, you only wish you did.

Marilyn Peterson

The heart was made to be broken

Oscar Wilde

If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded.

Maya Angelou

I would have rummaged, ransacked at the word; Those old odd corners of an empty heart; For remnants of dim love the long disused, And dusty crumbling of romance

Robert Browning

A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles.

Washington Irving

Smile, it is the key that fits the lock of everybody's heart.

Anthony J. D'Angelo

Be funny on a golf course? Do I kid my best friend's mother about her heart condition?

Phil Silvers

Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.

Bible

The sweetness of life lies in usefulness, like honey deep in the heart of a clover bloom.

Laura Ingalls Wilder

The greens are harder than a whore's heart

Sam Snead

That loss is common would not make My own less bitter, rather more: Too common! Never morning wore To evening, but some heart did break.

Lord Alfred Tennyson

A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life.

Isadora James

Tears are words the heart can't express”

Unknown

What's going on here is a redefinition of Christmas as a time of family celebration rather than as a time of the community faithful celebrating the birth of the savior...There is a risk that we will lose one more of our Christian rituals, one that's at the heart of our faith.

Robert Johnston

The only real blind person at Christmas-time is he who has not Christmas in his heart.

Helen Keller

Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.

Washington Irving

Lying under oath, and encouraging lies under oath, does go to the very heart and soul of what courts do. If we say we don't care, let's forget about courts, and we'll just have other ways of figuring out how to handle disputes.

Kenneth Starr
