Heart quotes

What are your favourite quotes (from fiction or non-fiction) about the heart? :)

I used to enjoy one from a book but I can't find it now lol, so I'll find one later.

Re: Heart quotes

Only one that immediately leaps to mind is "Home is where the heart is"

Re: Heart quotes

I like this quote from The Sublime Engine - by Stephen Amidon and Thomas Amidon, M.D:

"There is something alive inside you.

Right there, pulsing beneath your ribs. It hammers out a steady rhythm that reverberates through your musculature. If you touch your neck or your wrist or your leg, you can feel its report. It is as if a small but powerful beast has lodged inside your chest. The realization excites and frightens you. With this surge of emotion, the beast responds by quickening its activity — as if it senses your fear."

Re: Heart quotes

These excerpts are from Heart: A History, by Sandeep Jauhar.

"More than anything, the heart wants to beat; this purpose is built into its very structure…the heart doesn’t just pump blood to other organs; it pumps blood to itself. In a sense, and unlike any other organ, the heart is self-sustaining."

"We associate the heart with life because, like life itself, the heart is dynamic. From second to second, and on a macroscopic scale, the heart is the only organ that discernibly moves. Through its murmurings, it speaks to us; through its synchronized contractions, it broadcasts an electrical signal several thousand times more powerful than any other in the body."

"I was fascinated by the heart’s dichotomous nature: muscular, constantly toiling,  and yet so vulnerable at the same time"
