― Ariana Grande

“Going to religious places gives me clarity.

“I appreciate all the kids who come up and enjoy my play at OU. But everybody giving me their opinions is where I draw the line. If it’s someone who hasn’t been there before, I really can’t handle it. It’s ‘Slide more.’ ‘Don’t take as many hits.’ ‘Get out of bounds.’ I know they have my best interests at heart. I just have to remind myself of that.”

“It’s so important just to be true to yourself and to own your own character and take responsibility for it, and speak up and say, This isn’t right; this isn’t me.’ It’s a great lesson, not just in wrestling but in life. If you’re not feeling something that’s true to your heart… everybody’s gotta be true.”

― Becky Lynch

“Ghost! I miss him! Is that weird? I miss him even though I invented him. I feel a lot of tenderness toward him. I don’t write a lot of stuff that is sad or that is tender and affectionate, so that has a very special place in my heart.”

― David Burtka

“I am a country boy at heart.”

― David Cameron

― David Carradine

“I’m a science fiction author at heart, and what I like about the Cthulhu Mythos setting is that, at its core, it is horror science fiction. I can take ideas from modern theoretical science, manipulate them in truly bizarre and weird ways, and remain true to the Cthulhu Mythos vision.”

― David Conyers

― David Coverdale

“It’s very rare to have a patient who isn’t absolutely delighted when you say, ‘I read your feedback. The session didn’t go well. You actually got more upset, and I made about three really horrible errors.’ If you do that from the heart and not as a gimmick, boy, it’s a wonderful thing.”

― David D. Burns

“People who do not have funny in them are not funny when they read funny lines. Sorry. Just doesn’t work that way. Seriously, this is the biggest rule of all. You live and die with your casting decisions. Your actors are the heart and soul of the whole thing. Without brilliant actors, you will not have a brilliant film.”

― David Dobkin

“I love the ocean, wide-open space and trees, but I’m not a gardener or anything like that. I think I may be, eventually. I was raised in the city, so I don’t have that skill set, but my heart is more with the dirt than the concrete. It’s an unrequited love with nature – a one-way love affair.”

― David Duchovny

“I’m constantly amazed by the ability a child has to show sympathy, to read emotions, to get to the heart of any situation. It’s unfiltered and completely inspiring.”

I am still really proud to come from Blackburn. It is a place I still hold very dear to my heart, which is why I want to stay here.”

― David Dunn

“At the heart of the best documentaries, there is a journey of inquiry – someone who travels out into the world, comes back with a story, and who then finds meaning in it, and intrigue; someone who tells you about something you never quite knew before, or in a way you hadn’t quite thought about.”

― David Fanning

“The reason it’s called ‘The Heart of Robin Hood’ is that he starts off not having a heart – or certainly not being in contact with it. And through a series of stories, he learns to discover that he has one. He becomes much more dramatic as a character, to be honest, because there’s something rather too smug about the endless do-gooder.”

― David Farr

“The ‘Mahabharata’ is a more complex and longer saga than the ‘Ramayana,’ which is like a fairy tale. It’s much lighter and more fun, and at its heart, there’s a cracking love story.”

― David Longstreth

“In dialogue scenes, my favorite moments are when people aren’t talking because you can cut to the heart of the matter much more quickly, often with a look. People hide things in words.

― David Lowery

“I have God in my heart.”

― David Luiz

“Other players can be leaders on the pitch, but not all players can understand another player, so I try to. You need to understand the heart of another player. I try to read other people, to figure out how I can joke with this guy, how I can help him or touch his heart.”

“The best diet for overall health, and specifically for heart, brain, and cancer risk reduction, is a diet that’s aggressively low in carbohydrates with an abundance of healthful fat, and this is the central theme of ‘Grain Brain.’”

― David Perlmutter

“We can put a stake through the heart of Islamic State as an army. We can put a stake through the heart of its leaders. You can take away its territory.

― Dean Ornish

“An Asian way of eating and living may help prevent and even reverse the progression of coronary heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, prostate cancer and breast cancer. Incorporate more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, soy products and fish in your diet. Eat at home more with your family and friends.”

― Dean Ornish

“If you’re at high risk or are trying to reverse heart disease or prevent the recurrence of cancer, you probably need to make bigger changes in diet and lifestyle than someone who just wants to lose a few pounds and is otherwise healthy.

― Debbie Ford

And so I love that aspect of being able to play those things in both ‘True Blood’ and in ‘American Horror Story.’”

― Denis O’Hare

“I think I’m attracted to subjects that I’m afraid of. It’s a way to approach things I am afraid of, things that bring fear in my heart, and try to understand them, try to deal with them. It’s like demons. I try to approach it and understand it… I’m just visiting fears.”

― Denis Villeneuve

“The tin man vs. the straw man. The candidate with a brain but without a heart against the president with a heart but without a brain. That’s how many Latin Americans are viewing the race between John Kerry and George W. Bush.”

― Dennis Haysbert

“When you work on big commercial movies, of course there’s more money involved and you can still do some good work. But with an independent, you get films that are really close to the writers’ and directors’ heart. Somehow it becomes a little deeper. A little more meat and not as much flash.”

“I reached a point towards the end on the old heart where I had trouble getting out of a chair. All I wanted to do was get out of bed in the morning and walk to my office and sit back down in the chair.

― Dieter F. Uchtdorf

“For members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the term ‘testimony’ is a warm and familiar word in our religious expressions. It is tender and sweet. It has always a certain sacredness about it. When we talk about testimony, we refer to feelings of our heart and mind rather than an accumulation of logical, sterile facts.”

― Dolly Parton

“Of course, ‘I Will Always Love You’ is the biggest song so far in my career. I’m famous for several, but that one has been recorded by more people and made me more money, I think, than all of them. But that song did come from a true and deep place in my heart.”

― Dolly Parton

― Donny Osmond

“I think when you look around this league, so much is scripted. And not scripted in a sense that the league is scripted, but when guys talk, it’s like, ‘Say this.

“’Party Up’ is like ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ crossed with ‘House Party.’ It’s basically about this kid, my character, who’s this smooth, intelligent kid who’s petitioning to throw this big end-of-the-year-bash house party, and so he goes and manipulating different people and ruining lives. He somewhat has a selfish heart, but he’s a nice guy.”

― Elijah Kelley

“It’s too hard to present an opinion on something that’s not true to who you are. It’s much easier to base opinions and debates off of fact and your true heart on things. To me that just comes quite naturally, and it’s also about being open to what the debate is about and hearing the other side.”

― Elisabeth Hasselbeck

“It would probably break my heart to hear that people didn’t like me. I don’t look on the Internet.”

― Elisabeth Rohm

― Elizabeth Banks

― Elizabeth Blackburn

“Researchers have found that the brain definitely sends nerves directly to organs of the immune system and not just to the heart and the lower gut. In that way, too, the brain is influencing the body.”

― Elizabeth Blackburn

“Medicine has been successful by treating diseases in a very specific way once the damage is done. But telomere length integrates a lot of factors together and gives you an overall picture of risk for what is now emerging as a lot of diseases that tend to occur together, such as diabetes and heart disease.”

― Elizabeth Blackburn

“Studying organisms at a molecular level was totally compelling because it was moving from being a naturalist, which was the 19th-century kind of science, to being very focused and really getting to the heart of these molecules.”

― Elizabeth Strout

“Most of us know when we are about to react emotionally. We can feel it. Often there is a brief warning before the amygdala hijack. For some of us, it is butterflies in the stomach; for some, it is an increased heart rate, and for others, it is a feeling of agitation.”

― Elizabeth Thornton

― Ellen G. White

“If you have other gods before the Lord, your heart will be turned away from serving the only true and living God, who requires the whole heart, the undivided affections. All the heart, all the soul, all the mind, and all the strength, does God require. He will accept of nothing short of this.”

― Ellen G. White

“Anything that’s slightly dangerous and gets the heart rate going is my kind of workout.”

― Ellen Tauscher

“’Carrie Diaries’ was one of the scripts that was sent my way, and it was instantly something I wanted to work on. It was very charming, and there’s a lot of heart to it. It was touching and nostalgic and relatable, and it validates so many coming-of-age issues in an open and honest way. I think it speaks to real life.”

― Ellen Wong

“It’s usually a big kind of vent of frustration or anger or sadness that puts me in the right frame of mind to write. It’s such a cliche to say that artists write when they’re down, but it’s true for me. It’s a relief to get out what’s eating away at my heart or my soul or my head.”

― Ellie Goulding

― Ellie Goulding

“I started getting these attacks in 2009, just as my music career was taking off. I’d be doing photo-shoots and started to feel like I was having heart attacks.

― Emily V. Gordon

“It’s an incredible privilege for an actor to look into the camera. It’s like looking right into the heart of the film, and you can’t take that lightly.”

― Emily Watson

― Emmanuel Adebayor

“I’m very happy to have been a player who played for Arsenal, because the fans were always great to me – the manager, everyone, the players – and if I can just wish them the best of luck. They know, no matter what happened, they will always be in my heart because I love the club.”

― Emmanuelle Beart

“I was going through a little bit of turbulence in my career. And so, it’s funny how turbulence itself will make you hold onto something for security. And so the only thing I knew is trust in the Lord and lean not unto your own heart, in all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy path.”

― Eric Braeden

“Longevity is something I never gave a second thought to. I guess it’s the shadow of growing up in post WWII, but I never believed I would live past 20. Here I am though… a senior citizen… my voice and heart are stronger than ever, but boredom is the greatest enemy so I have to be careful not to slip over the edge.”

― Eric Kripke

“You do have to follow your heart, otherwise you’re living a false life.”

“That’s a tumor. It goes across my liver, up through my lungs, all the way around my heart. And when they were done trying to cut it out, nuke it out with radiation and chemotherapy it out, it left so much scar tissue that when I walk outside now in cold weather and take a deep breath, it feels like someone is stabbing me.”

― Eric Massa

“HubSpot has used the lean startup method to build a spectacularly successful company. What I particularly love about HubSpot is that they are so geeked out on data analysis and making evidence-based decisions, which are at the heart of the Lean Startup process.”

“I aimed at the public’s heart, and by accident I hit it in the stomach.”

― Eric Schlosser

“The ability to diagnose an imminent heart attack has long been considered the holy grail of cardiovascular medicine.”

― Eric Topol

“I use a portable pocket ultrasound device instead of a stethoscope to listen to the heart, and I share it with the patient in real time. ‘Look at your valve, look at your heart-muscle strength.’ So they’re looking at it with me. Normally a patient is tested by an ultrasonographer who is not allowed to tell them anything.”

― Eric Topol

“For people who have heart disease, statins are great. But if all you’ve had is high cholesterol, what you’re doing is taking this 1/100 chance of getting a benefit and offsetting it with 1/200 chance of getting diabetes.”

― Eric Topol

“The stethoscope for listening to the heart is over. It’s obsolete.”

― Eric Topol

― Eric Walters

“When your heart tells you something, you have to go with it.”

“’Smallville’ was my first love and it is always close to my heart.”

― Erica Durance

“My mother takes care of my health. She makes sure that the food cooked is in olive oil. She takes charge of our health also because my dad is a heart patient. So on sets, I do take care of myself. But at home, it’s my mother who is the boss of our health!”

“I just write songs from the heart, and you never know who’ll like the songs. I try to make sure that I don’t allow anybody’s expectation to weigh on me. I have my own expectation of life. I believe in letting people be free.”

― Ester Dean

“What does a teacher do in a school? A teacher would tell you off or give you lines or whatever it is, detentions, but at the same times, they are wanting your best interests at heart. They are teaching you, they are educating you, but at the same time, they will also have the ability to sanction you.”

― Esther McVey

“People respond to real problems from the heart.”

― Ethan Coen

“I’ve gotten to meet Sara Bareilles a couple of times. I’m just a such a massive fan of hers, from her albums to ‘Waitress’ to everything that she does. To be a fan of somebody and then find out that they have a good heart and are kind is really heartwarming.”

“A film can be big or small – I have to just fall in love with it. To connect with the character, the script, and the director. Sometimes they say to you, ‘You should do that for your career; it’s a big thing, people will go and see it,’ but I wouldn’t be able to, because my heart wouldn’t be in it. I would drive people quite mad.”

― Eva Green

“We Brits print banknotes out in Debden in Essex, and have contracted it out to the private sector. Here in the U.S. it is a government operation right in the heart of Washington next door to the Holocaust Museum.”

― Evan Rachel Wood

“Having been bullied growing up, it’s something that’s really near and dear to my heart. You probably won’t have many friends on Snapchat if you’re being a jerk.”

“’Vanity pages,’ is somewhat of a derogatory term; personal pages are still the heart of blogging, but now there are more topic-oriented blogs. It’s really about personal expression, and that’s just gotten bigger and broader.”

“It is not the size of a man but the size of his heart that matters.”

― Evander Holyfield

“Madison Square Garden, November 1984. I don’t recall taking too much fear into the ring. I knew I could fight. But I got a big shock. They put me in with this rough, tough veteran called Lionel Byarm. He tested me to the limit. But I fought my heart out and, in the end, I prevailed. The story of my life, in my very first fight.”

― Evangeline Lilly

“I can’t help who I am. I’m just doing what I feel like I should do in my heart. If I was walking around with Timbs and a hoodie on, people would see that that’s not me.”

― Ezra Taft Benson

“What does it mean to love someone with all your heart? It means to love with all your emotional feelings and with all your devotion. Surely when you love your wife with all your heart, you cannot demean her, criticize her, find fault with her, or abuse her by words, sullen behavior, or actions.”

― Ezra Taft Benson

“Most of us think of pride as self-centeredness, conceit, boastfulness, arrogance, or haughtiness. All of these are elements of the sin, but the heart, or core, is still missing. The central feature of pride is enmity – enmity toward God and enmity toward our fellowmen.”

― Ezra Taft Benson

“To love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength is all-consuming and all-encompassing. It is no lukewarm endeavor.”

“I like people and I like them to like me, but I wear my heart where God put it, on the inside.”

― F. Scott Fitzgerald

“The heart of the theater is the play itself, how it dramatizes life to make it meaningful entertainment. To achieve depth and universality, the playwright must subject himself to intense critique, to know human character and behavior, and finally to construct art from the most mundane of human experience.”

“Nobody could like Donald Trump, surely, except his mother. No one really likes The Donald. But how can you not have respect for a guy who’s been down on the floor and just keeps coming back? Nothing will keep Donald Trump down until they drive a wooden stake in his heart and a silver bullet in his brain.”

― Felix Dennis

“I have been called brave in my time, but brave as I may have been against foreign invaders, I have no heart to shed Filipino blood.”

― Fernando Flores

“Could it think, the heart would stop beating.”

― Fernando Pessoa

“I think Finn Balor is more about confidence, a smarter version of Prince Devitt. Otherwise, they have the same core values, same techniques, and the same heart.”

― Finn Balor

“A lot of the stuff that’s happening now, I can trace back to ‘Death of a Salesman.’ Francine Maisler, the casting director, saw ‘Death of a Salesman’ and called me in for ‘Unbroken.’ The casting director of ‘Normal Heart’ had seen ‘Salesman’ too. I look back on it now, and it’s like one thing led to another; it was a chain reaction.”

― Finn Wittrock

“I have a different relationship with Chucky because he’s been on top of my bookshelf in the corner of my living room for my entire life. He was a great tool for scaring friends, and when I see him in different theme parks I’ve been to, or in commercials, my heart swells a little bit, and I’m like, ‘Aww! It’s my Chucky!’”

― Fiona Dourif

“I enjoy making films, but my heart is in the stage. Every night you have to be on. There’s no second take.”

― Fiona Shaw

“Sometimes, I would love to record a super-quiet album, but for some reason, I never really got to that because my heart lies with the heavy stuff.”

― Floor Jansen

“I may have more than one friend with benefits. It’s very healthy for the heart. I think no matter how old you are – and I am pretty up there in terms of numbers – I think you should do whatever makes you happy.”

― Florence Henderson

“Writers, not psychiatrists, are the true interpreters of the human mind and heart, and we have been at it for a very long time.”

― Florence King

“It is possible for a kid from east Texas, raised in south central LA and Carson, who believes in his dreams, commits himself to them with his heart, to touch them and to have them happen.”

― Forest Whitaker

“I am just back from South Sudan, one of the world’s most fragile nations. For years, I have been moved by the kind people who maintain hope that they will live to see peace. My heart has ached for them, as they have endured pain and violence that make such hope feel out of reach.”

― Forest Whitaker

“Horror is so often a ‘thinkless’ genre, sort of considered popcorn movies, but you really put a lot of, not just heart and soul, but a lot of physical energy into it.”

― Fran Kranz

“I place a high moral value on the way people behave. I find it repellent to have a lot, and to behave with anything other than courtesy in the old sense of the word – politeness of the heart, a gentleness of the spirit.”

― Fran Lebowitz

“In grownups, mercury can cause memory loss, tremors, vision loss and numbness of the fingers and toes. It can also adversely affect fertility and blood pressure regulation, and a growing body of evidence suggests that exposure to mercury may lead to heart disease.”

― Frances Beinecke

“We do not know what lies ahead, yet whatever the challenge, leaders will rise, finding the heart, the language, the caring that embraces and sustains.”

― Frances Hesselbein

“The existing principle of selfish interest and competition has been carried to its extreme point; and, in its progress, has isolated the heart of man, blunted the edge of his finest sensibilities, and annihilated all his most generous impulses and sympathies.”

― Francine Rivers

“Honestly, when I read the Scriptures, I really believe the Lord puts a heart in us when we become believers.”

― Francis Chan

“The brain is the most complicated organ in the universe. We have learned a lot about other human organs. We know how the heart pumps and how the kidney does what it does. To a certain degree, we have read the letters of the human genome. But the brain has 100 billion neurons. Each one of those has about 10,000 connections.”

― Francis Collins

“People who are in a position of finding out that they’re at risk for some illness, whether it’s breast cancer, or heart disease, are afraid to get that information – even though it might be useful to them – because of fears that they’ll lose their health insurance or their job.”

― Francis Collins

“I have much to learn from my daughter Sofia. Her minimalism exposes my limitations: I’m too instinctive and operatic, I put too much heart into my work, I get lost sometimes in bizarre things – it’s my Italian heritage.”

― Francis Ford Coppola

“When I do a novel, I don’t really use the script, I use the book; when I did Apocalypse Now, I used Heart of Darkness. Novels usually have so much rich material.”

― Francis Ford Coppola

“While you are proclaiming peace with your lips, be careful to have it even more fully in your heart.”

― Francis of Assisi

“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.”

― Francis Quarles

― Francis Quarles

― Francis Quarles

“Then, in that hour of deliverance, my heart spoke. Does not such a country, and such defenders of their country, deserve a song?”

― Francis Scott Key

“I think I have made allowances for the kind of despair which would test my faith, but you cannot know in advance what disaster to those you love would be too much to bear faithfully, and like everyone’s, my faith is weakly conditional in some ways. I hope, I pray not to lose it. My fingers are crossed. Also my heart.”

― Francis Spufford

“For a believer, Christian faith is true to the human heart, not in the sense that any old thing we fancy believing in will become conveniently true – but because the complicated truth about our hearts, as we struggle to perceive it, tells us what we are and where we are, and consequently what we need.”

― Francis Spufford

― Frank Moore Colby

“A heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others.”

― Frank Morgan

“I don’t know if you want to call it, like, ‘an old school guy’ or what, but you’ve got to go out there; you’ve got to perform in order to get what you want. I’m willing to put my skills on the line and put my heart on the line just to say I’m the best and prove that I can achieve this title.”

― Frankie Edgar

“Every day of my life, I wish I was on Broadway. It’s my favorite place. It’s my heart; it’s my soul.”

“I was 22 years old when I asked Christ to come into my heart. You cannot be born a Christian; you can only be converted. And that is by putting your faith and trust in Christ.”

― Franklin Graham

“The Muslims want to force conversion. Christians want to persuade you to voluntarily change your heart to where you would say yes to Jesus Christ.”

― Franklin Graham

“The World Cup tournament overall and, naturally, the new stadiums at its heart, are the ideal platform to portray Germany as a positive and exceptional location, and above all of course, as a highly capable economic location.”

― Fred Allen

“People who are employed in a way they don’t like – my heart cries for them.”

― Fred L. Turner

“The early seasons of ‘The Simpsons’ had a great deal of heart. That’s what I’m trying to pull from, the kind of stuff that goes straight to kids’ hearts. When they’re watching, they don’t necessarily know why they love something.”

― Fred Seibert

“When you’re a father, you know exactly where your heart really is. There’s no question of it, no doubt. That part of your life has no second guessing.”

― Fred Ward

“That man is a creature who needs order yet yearns for change is the creative contradiction at the heart of the laws which structure his conformity and define his deviancy.”

― Freda Adler

“After I got dropped by Interscope, I knew in my heart that I had to fight back some way or not rap at all. I just took it upon myself to get myself where I needed to be.”

“I follow my heart in almost every instance, and it gets me in trouble most of the time. But I don’t care. I think that’s the best way I can live.”

― Freddie Prinze, Jr.

“In my mind and in my heart, I feel okay. I cannot complain that I haven’t lived long enough, but I’d like to live longer.”

― Freddy Fender

“And what is liberty, whose very name makes the heart beat faster and shakes the world? Is it not the union of all liberties – liberty of conscience, of education, of association, of the press, of travel, or labor, or trade?”

― Frederic Bastiat

“Oh, how miserable it is to have no one to share your sorrows and joys, and, when your heart is heavy, to have no soul to whom you can pour out your woes.”

― Frederic Chopin

“What’s wrong with us isn’t a rap sheet of bad deeds, but a damaged heart, a soul-sickness, that plunges us into fearful self-protection, alienation from God and others.”

― Frederica Mathewes-Green

“Pay mind to your own life, your own health, and wholeness. A bleeding heart is of no help to anyone if it bleeds to death.”

― Frederick Buechner

“The standardization of world culture, with local popular or traditional forms driven out or dumbed down to make way for American television, American music, food, clothes and films, has been seen by many as the very heart of globalization.”

― Fredric Jameson

“I speak from the heart. Certain people follow lyricists and people that put words on a dictionary together, and this and that. I’m more of a rapper that speaks how I feel. I just tell it how it is.”

― French Montana

“I never went out to make the music that people would like. I mean, I tried, because every teenager tries to do that. But in my heart, I’d always come from gigs where I played upbeat guitar covers and I’d start writing sad songs on the piano.”

― Freya Ridings

“Christmas… is not an external event at all, but a piece of one’s home that one carries in one’s heart.”

― Gabriel Batistuta

“The heart’s memory eliminates the bad and magnifies the good.”

“To open yourself up and open your heart, it’s a scary thing in life, let alone a movie.”

― Gabriella Wilde

“The more the heart is sated with joy, the more it becomes insatiable.”

― Gabrielle Roy

“The 370-year-old antique shop Trifles and Folly is the heart of ‘Deadly Curiosities,’ my new urban fantasy novel from Solaris Books.”

― Gail Z. Martin

“What’s so lovely about Wonder Woman is yes, she has the strength and power of a goddess, but she has the heart and mind of a human. So I play her as I think a woman like me would act in the situations she’s going through. You treat her as a normal woman who happens to be fantastic and almighty.”

― Gal Gadot

“I’m just attracted to the action element of science fiction. It’s great to sit in the editing room with the director and sound engineers and to create the feeling where your heart is racing and you’re sitting at the edge of your seat and you find yourself holding your breath.”

― Gale Anne Hurd

“What’s near and dear to my heart is cooperative conservation.”

― Gale Norton

“Continuity is at the heart of conservatism: ecology serves that heart.”

“Christmas is, of course, the time to be home – in heart as well as body.”

― Garry Moore

“Before the show, we see all these radio people, and most of them say, ‘Garth, you’re a lot calmer than I thought you were gonna be.’ But when the members of the band give one another that handshake, and the lights go out, and the crowd goes up, then you’re sliding into the elevator, man, your heart is just going bopbopbopbopbop.”

― Garth Brooks

“I’m just trying to approach what I make with as much respect and research as I can, and just make it with a good heart.”

― Garth Davis

“To me, country music’s about life. It’s about Monday through Friday. It’s the blue-collar, 40-hour week, songs about life. It used to have more of a sound, but I think the heart of that’s still the same. It’s still American music.”

― Gary Allan

“If Republicans are aiming for the heart, for compassion, the last thing they should do is abandon the sanctity of life. Instead, they should tell Americans that they believe in the dignity and value of every human being, from the defenseless unborn child, to the newborn with a disability, to the 90-year-old dealing with dementia.”

― Gary Bauer

“There’s a place in my heart for every team I played on.”

― Gary Carter

“Trust is not simply a matter of truthfulness, or even constancy. It is also a matter of amity and goodwill. We trust those who have our best interests at heart, and mistrust those who seem deaf to our concerns.”

― Gary Hamel

“At the heart of every faith system is a bargain: on one side there is the comfort that comes from a narrative that suggests human life has cosmic significance, and on the other a duty to yield to moral commands that can, in the moment, seem rather inconvenient.”

― Gary Hamel

“We have got too many kids around the house to have a romantic meal at home. But Danielle is a fantastic cook. She does a brilliant lasagne, great roasts and a great chilli dish. She knows the way to my heart.”

― Gary Lineker

“Football is losing its heart and sense of humour.”

― Gary Lineker

“I never told my father I loved him before he died, and I have a lot of issues about that. They’re all swimming around in my head, in my heart, unresolved, and in a way it felt fitting to dedicate the film to him.”

― Gary Oldman

“I’ve had some heart problems, and I’m on the straight and narrow.”

― Gary Rossington

“Social media requires that business leaders start thinking like small-town shop owners. This means taking the long view and avoiding short-term benchmarks to gauge progress. It means allowing the personality, heart and soul of the people who run all levels of the business to show.”

― Gary Vaynerchuk

“The heart of the 2008 financial crisis was a coterie of reckless financial executives, working for too-big-to-fail financial companies, who were handsomely compensated for taking risks that almost ruined the economy when they failed.”

― Gary Weiss

“Commitment and creativity cannot be captured and handcuffed. Inspiration cannot be jailed. The heart cannot be contained.”

― Gary Zukav

“Compassion is loving others enough to say or do what is appropriate from an empowered heart without attachment to the outcome.”

― Gary Zukav

“Love grounds you. It orients you. Love brings your awareness to others and yourself. Love opens your mind and heart to others and yourself. Love settles you and gives you balance.”

― Gary Zukav

“Only choices made in love are compassionate. There are no exceptions. Do you have the courage to act with an empowered heart without attachment to the outcome? If not, you have no ability to give or experience compassion. That is the shocking truth.”

― Gary Zukav

“When your heart is in the right place and you give your best, nothing can go wrong.”

“I feel like we’re constantly getting better musically, and more of what’s in my heart and head is coming through.”

― Gavin Creel

“The thing about Moby Dick is that, at heart, it’s a very simple plot – there’s only one white whale in the ocean. When you’re a boy growing up in a hostile home, you imagine it’s unique: it’s happening only to you.”

― Gavin O’Connor

“I always say to my agents, you go through one of these big kind of movies, everyone makes money, but like, I said, ‘I’m the one who’s gotta go make it, and if I don’t have my heart in it, and it’s like a love affair, I’m not going to do a good job. Then, and I don’t want to just get paid. I just, I don’t want to do that.’”

― Gavin O’Connor

“I want to re-mythologize ‘The Green Hornet’ in a contemporary context, with an emphasis on story and character, while at the same time incorporating themes that speak to my heart.”

― Gavin O’Connor

“Better that you should take the chance of trying something that is close to your heart, you think is what you want to write, and if they do not publish it, put it in your drawer. But maybe another day will come and you will find a place to put that.”

― Gay Talese

“I don’t think I tell stories of tragedy. I think I tell stories of love. Even though you’re full of tears, I hope that you leave the theatre with your heart feeling like it’s going to explode out of your chest. And yes, you’ve been through the tragedy, but it’s ultimately hope that I think you’re left with.”

― Gayle Forman

“I want to tell the students to follow their heart and respect their parents and teachers as they are their ultimate gurus.”

― Geeta Phogat

“For books are more than books, they are the life, the very heart and core of ages past, the reason why men lived and worked and died, the essence and quintessence of their lives.”

― Gene Fowler

“I refuse to stand up in front of a rabbi and my friends and the woman I love – who I will tell you I can love with all my heart – and promise she will be the only one I will ever have until the day I die. That’s a lie.”

― Gene Simmons

“There is nothing that I would do ever to break my mother’s heart.”

― Gene Simmons

“Some women feel the best cure for a broken heart is a new beau.”

― Gene Tierney

“Exercise should be regarded as tribute to the heart.”

― Gene Tunney

“Fat is one of the chief enemies of the heart because it has to be plentifully supplied with blood and thus needlessly increases the pumping load that the heart must sustain.”

― Gene Tunney

“If my mother hadn’t laughed at the funny things I did, I probably wouldn’t be a comic actor. After she had her first heart attack, the doctor said, ‘Try to make her laugh.’ And that was the first time I tried to make anyone laugh.”

― Gene Wilder

“My heart goes out to the Lindsay Lohans and Britneys who have really had childhood taken from them and probably missed important developmental steps. They have become sort of ‘public domain’ and something to be made money on. There’s no sense of self there, I’m sure of it.”

― Genie Francis

“I am still moved by passages of Marx: the ‘Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right,’ for example, where, after the famous line about religion being ‘the opium of the people,’ he goes on to call it ‘the heart of a heartless world.’”

― Geoff Dyer

“It’s an irony that growing inequality could mean more money for philanthropy. In the U.S., quite a few of the ultra-rich have taken to heart the 19th century industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie’s comment that it’s a disgrace to die wealthy.”

― Geoff Mulgan

“The blue of my eyes is extinguished in this night, the red gold of my heart.”

― George Bernard Shaw

“There are two tragedies in life. One is to lose your heart’s desire. The other is to gain it.”

― George Bernard Shaw

“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.”

― George Bernard Shaw

“A broken heart is a very pleasant complaint for a man in London if he has a comfortable income.”

― George Bernard Shaw

“Theater, at the end of the day, is about ideas. It’s about very large ideas. And if the play is beautifully written or smartly written and has incredible characters you follow on the journey, you take home these larger ideas. Whether it’s ‘Angels in America’ or ‘Lucky Guy’ or ‘Normal Heart,’ you follow this moment-to-moment journey as an audience.”

― George C. Wolfe

“When ‘The Normal Heart’ first appeared, the sense of urgency was so important.”

― George C. Wolfe

“A musical is what happens when text collides with motion collides with song collides with spectacle. And spectacle can be the human heart; it doesn’t necessarily have to be a helicopter crashing.”

“If we had a keen vision of all that is ordinary in human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow or the squirrel’s heart beat, and we should die of that roar which is the other side of silence.”

― George Eliot

“Jealousy is never satisfied with anything short of an omniscience that would detect the subtlest fold of the heart.”

― George Eliot

“A woman’s heart must be of such a size and no larger, else it must be pressed small, like Chinese feet; her happiness is to be made as cakes are, by a fixed recipe.”

― George Eliot

“The heart was always seen as the noblest of the internal organs as well as the most vital. The hearts of martyrs or future candidates for sainthood would be preserved, but never their livers, say, or the entrails – at least not on their own; it was either the heart by itself or the whole lot together.”

― George Fetherling

“Romantic ideas about the heart fly in the face of known fact, but that doesn’t matter and never has. People many thousands of years ago knew that the heart is basically a blood pump, but that didn’t keep them from also believing it was the seat of romantic love (and all other strong emotion).”

― George Fetherling

“I look at my children and one thing I’m most proud of, in my heart, are my children.”

“Poland should be strong and prosperous and independent and play its proper role as a great nation in the heart of Europe.”

― George H. W. Bush

“In the end, you’re trying to find God. That’s the result of not being satisfied. And it doesn’t matter how much money, or property, or whatever you’ve got, unless you’re happy in your heart, then that’s it. And unfortunately, you can never gain perfect happiness unless you’ve got that state of consciousness that enables that.”

― George Harrison

“People are simply screwing up when they go out and buy beefsteak, which is killing them with cancer and heart troubles. The stuff costs a fortune, too. You could feed a thousand people with lentil soup for the cost of half a dozen filets.”

― George Harrison

“A gentle heart is tied with an easy thread.”

― George Herbert

“I loved Roy Acuff with all my heart, and I never dreamed I’d be able to meet him or see him onstage, or especially become good friends with him. For all this to happen, it’s hard to explain what a dream this is when you love something as much as I love traditional country music.”

― George Jones

“The great player, so much of the greatness, in my mind, is in his heart and his head. It’s not in his body, in his skill set. It comes from having great talent but wanting to mold that and fit it together into being special. And being special means winning championships.”

― George Karl

“Terrorism is not a public health threat, relative to cancer and heart disease and malaria and so forth.”

― George M. Church

“Someone younger at heart should replace you, and that should be you. I’m willing to. I’m willing to become younger. I try to reinvent myself every few years anyway.”

― George M. Church

“If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give.”

― George MacDonald

“Sailing a boat calls for quick action, a blending of feeling with the wind and water as well as with the very heart and soul of the boat itself. Sailing teaches alertness and courage, and gives in return a joyousness and peace that but few sports afford.”

“If you believe indeed in the Lord Jesus for the salvation of your soul, if you walk uprightly and do not regard iniquity in your heart, if you continue to wait patiently, and believingly upon God; then answers will surely be given to your prayers.”

― George Muller

“If honest of heart and uprightness before God were lacking or if I did not patiently wait on God for instruction, or if I preferred the counsel of my fellow-men to the declarations of the Word of God, I made great mistakes.”

― George Muller

“The Lord never lays more on us, in the way of chastisement, than our state of heart makes needful; so that whilst He smites with the one hand, He supports with the other.”

― George Muller

“I desire many things concerning myself; but I desire nothing so much, as to have a heart filled with love to the Lord. I long for a warm personal attachment to Him.”

― George Muller

“’Beyond Belief with George Noory’ will be an hour-long show that cuts to the heart of what’s going on with people today, topics wide-ranging and generally nonpolitical, but even more edgy.”

― George Noory

“To clarify the facts to everyone, yes, I did have a heart attack. I was on a plane leaving from Los Angeles, CA, heading to Secaucus, NJ, for a comic convention when I started to feel some discomfort in my chest.”

“I have a little bit of a pet peeve about how the middle class is depicted in movies. I feel like they tend to be either depicted in a very sentimental way, where everybody has a heart of gold except for the villains you’re supposed to hiss at, or there’s a sort of indie-style version… When it’s done well, it’s brilliant, it’s ‘Blue Velvet.’”

“At the end of the day, we need a leader who thinks with his head but leads with his heart.”

“I don’t really want to just play the girlfriend or the love interest. I get so many scripts like that, and – not to moan, because I’m really fortunate – but I just look at those scripts, and my heart sinks a little bit because I think there’s so much more to us than that.”

― Guy Finley

“Within us – the heart of us, really – is a ‘ground’ that is to our thoughts and feelings, our relationships with others and ourselves, as is the Earth to the leaves that first race across her and then, no longer able to run, give themselves up to nourish her body so that she may give birth again come the spring.”

“When the Constitution was written in 1787, there was this supposition that American politics would be above party.

“In medicine as well as in romantic poetry, it is the heart that is the center and controlling mechanics of life. If the heart stops, life stops. The loss of sight doesn’t not mean death.

“’Top Of The Lake’ is a great story with a beginning, and a middle and an end, about darkness – it’s like the heart of darkness. And everybody has got one. When I was reading it, I couldn’t put it down, and I wanted to know what was going to happen next.”

― Holly Hunter

“I’m from Oklahoma City, and there’s a statue across from the site of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building of Jesus. It’s called ‘Jesus Wept.’ And I love this statue because it’s a statue of Jesus with his head in his hand. And his sadness and his pain at some of the choices that are made here – that just breaks his heart.”

― Holly Hunter

“When Finley gets his vaccinations, it kills me, and you can’t protect yourself from that. My heart is being ripped out with every shot. It’s a deeper level of emotion that I wasn’t prepared to feel, but it’s completely amazing. It has opened me up both as a person and as an actress. Everything has a deeper meaning now.”

― Holly Marie Combs

“When I was a boy, one of my favorite places to go was a pine-filled hollow high on the mountain behind our house. It was a place where the industrial song of Coalwood subsided.

― Honore de Balzac

“Small natures require despotism to exercise their sinews, as great souls thirst for equality to give play to their heart.”

― Honore de Balzac

“The deadnettle is the Punxsutawney Phil of the plant world: short of stature but stout of heart. At the first hint of winter’s wane, its stem rises from the ground, and a green, grasping hand of sepals unclenches to divulge two silky-white petals, one of which unfurls straight up toward the sky.”

― Hope Jahren

“I’m a nerd at heart.”

― Hope Solo

“It’s a complicated thing, knowing how much pain my father caused in my life and the lives of others whom I love, yet still holding love for him in my heart. No matter what he did, he was my father. He helped create the person I am.”

― Hope Solo

“Nobody really knows who I am, where I came from, what’s in my heart, why I believe in the things I believe, what I see behind the scenes and they don’t see.”

― Howard Dean

“The heart and soul of a Navy SEAL is somebody who’s committed to their country and committed to their teammates.”

― Howard E. Wasdin

“The novel is a thing of irony and ambiguity. That’s at the heart of ‘J’, a world that has stopped arguing with itself. We have to keep our equilibrium of hate, which is argument. But on the Internet, you find a unanimity of response, and in ‘J,’ there’s a fear of that, that discourse becomes a statement of political or ideological belief.”

― Howard Jacobson

“Things happen in ‘If This is a Man’ that are beyond ordinary daily experience, but it is still us to whom they are happening, and the understanding Levi seeks is no different in kind from that sought by Shakespeare in ‘King Lear’, or Conrad in ‘The Heart of Darkness’.”

― Howard Jacobson

“I had worked on the markets with my father before going to university, so I possessed an apparent street-smartness, had access to a colourful costermonger vocabulary, and tried passing myself off as a bit of spiv. But my contemporaries saw through me. At heart, they knew I was as bookish and oversensitive as they were.”

― Howard Jacobson

“A lot of the ‘leave’ campaign was centered around a thinly veiled xenophobia, just ‘control our own borders.’ It’s not a good look. I don’t think it represents Britain; I don’t think it represents the U.K. all too well. It breaks my heart for my generation in Britain who are going to suffer.”

― Hozier

― Hugh Sidey

“We should burn all libraries and allow to remain only that which everyone knows by heart. A beautiful age of the legend would then begin.”

― Hussein of Jordan

“I love karaoke – I usually do Blondie’s ‘Heart Of Glass,’ or ‘Try A Little Tenderness.’”

― Ian Brown

“In Poland, the whole saying is, ‘You’ve got one eye to Morocco and the other to the Caucasus.’ That’s the heart of the culture. In England, they say it less romantic: ‘You’ve got a wandering eye.’ The saying means my main stream in life must be Deep Purple. That’s my main job. Then every now, and I can wander off and have one eye to Morocco.”

― Ian Gillan

― Ice Cube

“Even though I have a nice house, nice family, the rest of my generation is still in South Central L.A. My cousins, my brothers, my sisters, they don’t wanna move out. They don’t want to and they don’t have the means to sustain it. That’s where my heart is and that’s what I think about all the time.”

― Ice Cube

“Equipment has heart, human heart, inside it.”

― Ichiro Suzuki

“We have to connect to our fans through the media, and when you talk about that, it’s got to come from your heart. And when it comes from your heart, it has to be absolutely consistent. There’s a big risk you take without an interpreter because, as professional baseball players, we are here to perform baseball, not to learn a language.”

“I do two cups of coffee with a little bit of raw sugar and soy creamer, and then I do a bowl of plain oatmeal with walnuts and blueberries. Now, if I could do what I really wanted to do with my life, every morning I would have a salami-and-cheese omelet with hash browns and a buttermilk biscuit – and pancakes. But my heart would explode.”

― Ilaiyaraaja

“The running joke about the Premio Cervantes, the most coveted literary prize in the Spanish-speaking world, which was established by Spain’s Ministry of Culture in 1976, is that Cervantes himself wouldn’t have received it. This is because he was, in his heart, the most anti-Spanish of Spanish writers.”

“In Denver, all we really had was pop radio, so I grew up on all that late ’70s pop stuff – Billy Joel, James Taylor, Lionel Richie, Elton John, Steve Miller and Toto. Great love songs and really hooky and melodic music – I have all of that stuff in my heart.”

“To be a CEO is a calling. You should not do it because it is a job. It is a calling, and you have got to be involved in it with your head, heart and hands. Your heart has got to be in the job; you got to love what you do; it consumes you. And if you are not willing to get into the CEO job that way, there is no point getting into it.”

“Going meat-free can make a huge difference. Studies show that vegetarians are, on average, 10 to 20 pounds lighter than meat-eaters and that a vegetarian diet reduces our risk of heart disease by 40 percent and adds seven or more years to our lifespan.”

― Ingrid Newkirk

“Perhaps one of the most important things you can do for human beings is wean them off an animal-based diet. It hardens the arteries and runs up our health-care costs. The last thing a poor person can afford is a heart attack or cancer or a stroke. And that’s all linked to a meat-based diet. I think animal liberation is human liberation.”

― Ingrid Newkirk

“The radio is good for taking somebody else’s experience and making you understand what it would be like. Because when you don’t see someone, but you hear them talking – and, uh, that is what radio is all about – it’s like when someone is talking from the heart. Everything about it conspires to take you into somebody else’s world.”

― Ira Glass

“Do what in your heart you know is right. It is easy to get caught up in your ambitions, but no job is worth not being true to yourself.”

“Heart is what drives us and determines our fate.”

― Isabel Allende

“When I write fiction, I never try to deliver a message; I just want to tell a story. But I admit that I want the story to be memorable and the characters to touch the reader’s heart.”

― Isabel Allende

“In the books I have written, I have created in my mind a universe. My kids say I have a village in my head and I live in that village, and it’s true. When I start writing a book, characters from previous books reappear. All my emotions, my mind, my heart, my dreams, everything becomes connected with a new book, and nothing else really matters.”

― Isabel Allende

“You find out what you are made of when you have a broken heart. If it happens early and often, all the better.”

“I believe in having a more open mind and including others who don’t share your faith and having dialogue with them. And just having a pure heart and being a good person can bring you closer to God. Because once you believe in one particular religion fully and not others, that requires you to start disliking people who don’t share your views.”

― Iyanla Vanzant

“It’s about your heart and about your consciousness. It’s not about length of time you pray. Some of the most powerful prayers I’ve ever heard come from children, who can barely speak.”

― Iyanla Vanzant

“Some of us pray demands. Some of us pray complaints. Some of us pray knowing, and some of us pray not knowing. But prayer is the attitude that you hold in your heart.”

“Strictly speaking, my interest is not in legal rights for animals but in a change of heart towards animals.”

“To work for months and months and months, you kind of spill blood and give your heart and soul to something, and then you just sort of let it out into the universe and hope that people like it. How you see it in your head is never how you see it on the screen, so it’s almost like an out of body experience.”

― Jaime Ray Newman

“To work for months and months and months, you kind of spill blood and give your heart and soul to something, and then you just sort of let it out into the universe and hope that people like it.”

“As a songwriter, it’s very hard to listen to music that’s not coming from the heart and soul, personally.”

― Jake Bugg

“My big break was really Liz Meriwether saw me in a movie called ‘Paper Heart’ and really liked it, and then saw me in a movie called ‘Ceremony’ because she knew Max Winkler and said, ‘I want you to be in ‘No Strings Attached,’ but you gotta audition for it.’ From that it was easier for her to get me in ‘New Girl.’”

― Jake Johnson

“My dream career would be to be in things that have real heart and are telling real stories but while doing that, you’re getting really big laughs. I don’t necessarily love the straight crazy comedies. ‘Caddyshack’ is amazing, but there’s not a lot of new ‘Caddyshack’s.”

― James Comey

“If you invent something, you’re doing a creative act. It’s like writing a novel or composing music. You put your heart and soul into it, and money. It’s years of your life, it’s your house remortgaged, huge emotional investment and financial investment.”

― James Marsters

“At the heart of every really good Christmas movie is the threat, I suppose, to Christmas. Something is wrong with Christmas, in all of these movies. In ‘The Polar Express,’ there’s a kid that doesn’t really believe, and that’s the threat to Christmas. In ‘Santa Claus: The Movie,’ jealousy and greed are threatening to overrun his Christmas.”

― James McAvoy

“John Brown was clearly flawed in real life. He did some terrible things, but he did some things none of us would have had the heart to do. His moral leanings were unquestionably admirable.”

“I wanted somebody who had a heart and a soul, because Joe Carroll is soulless. There was nothing in there. He was a vacuum of a man.”

“A voice and an accent are two very different things. The voice of a man is how he speaks from his heart, right in the middle of him… And then you stick an accent on top of that.”

― James Purefoy

“Joe Carroll had a certain black comedy to him. But I think it’s lovely playing a man who, in his heart and soul, is a gentle man. And he’s wounded and complicated.”

“You just pour your heart and soul into a project, and everyone pays their dues, and everyone on the crew, everyone works so hard. Then you just don’t know how the show ends up.

― Jane Seymour

“When I was growing up, my mother, who had been through a lot of terrible things in life, taught me that when life is tough your instinct is to close your heart.

“In my heart of hearts, I love theatre. It’s the joy and terror of putting a play on, the creativity of it. It is infinitely harder than film and television and more tiring. Your performance is heightened in the way it isn’t with film.”

― Janet McTeer

“My mother taught us to play baseball, to bake a cake, to play fair – she beat the living daylights out of us sometimes, and she loved us with all her heart; she taught her favorite poets, and there is no child care in the world that will ever be a substitute for what that lady was in our life.”

“I’m still a fan at heart.”

― Jeff Hardy

“It’s not hard to look at our own world and draw parallels between 9/11, for example, and how Muslims are viewed or treated by North American culture since then. Just to see the way fear can breed hatred and intolerance for people who aren’t the same as us – and that’s certainly part of what’s at the heart of ‘Descender.’”

― Jeff Lemire

“You can write a script, but that’s just a starting point as a cartoonist. The heart of the process comes when you start to draw it, and you work out how to lay the page out, how best to tell the story.”

― Jeff Lemire

“Imagine if Congress always put the interests of polluters ahead of the health of our families. Our rivers and lakes would be choked with sewage. Acid rain would pour down from smog-filled skies.

― Jeffrey Dean Morgan

“The daily act of writing remains as demanding and maddening as it was before, and the pleasure you get from writing – rare but profound – remains at the true heart of the enterprise. On their best days, writers all over the world are winning Pulitzers, all alone in their studios, with no one watching.”

“There are a lot of things I might be good at, such as competitive figure skating, window washing from ten stories up, and being an open heart surgeon.

“It’s never too late to take your heart health seriously and make it a priority.”

― Jennie Garth

“They told me that I had a leaky valve, which is something that is certainly not life-threatening. It’s common and it’s something that had I not known about it, would I have lived? Sure.

“I believed then – in a deep, easy way that is impossible for me as an adult – that there was more to this world than meets the eye. Trees had spirits; the wind spoke. If you followed a toad or a raven deep into the heart of the forest, they were sure to lead you to something magical.”

“At the heart of every story is conflict – whether external or internal, make it a good one, and remember that this problem is going to shape your character, leaving her forever changed.”

― Jennifer McMahon

“I have a friend who calls me the queen of the nightmares because I’ve always had really bad nightmares. I keep a notebook by the side of my bed, so I’ll wake up in the night from a bad dream, and my heart’s pounding, and I’m really scared, but I write it down, and sometimes I get ideas for books that way.”

― Jennifer McMahon

― Jenny Han

― Jenny Han

“I’m a folk artist at heart.”

― Jenny Scheinman

“’Sour Heart’ is a collection of seven linked short stories narrated by young Chinese-American girls living in New York City in the ’90s. It’s exceptionally hard to describe what I’ve written without sounding delusional or boring, so I’ll just say they are stories about growing up and the pleasures and agonies of having a family, a body, and a home.”

― Jenny Zhang

“As much as people were asking me and everybody else on the show constantly if Jon Snow is alive or dead, I think, really, in their heart of hearts, they didn’t actually want to know.

― Jerome Charyn

“Since I carry my father’s name, I believe it is my responsibility to use that name as he would have to support the causes that were so dear to his heart. Dad strongly supported Huckabee when no one thought that he had any chance to succeed in the presidential race.”

― Jerry Lewis

“’The Night Cafe’ and ‘The Starry Night’ still emit such pathos, density, and intensity that they send shivers down the spine. Whether Van Gogh thought in color or felt with his intellect, the radical color, dynamic distortion, heart, soul, and part-by-part structure in these paintings make him a bridge to a new vision and the vision itself.”

― Jerry Saltz

“I would love to do a small indie comedy, like a Wes Anderson movie or, like, an ensemble comedy like ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’ or ‘Little Miss Sunshine.’ I like comedies like that, that have a lot of heart and are about family dynamics.”

― Jesse Jackson

“I was at a local club, Penketh United, and Mike Glennie, a Manchester United scout, came to watch me. He spoke to my grandad and offered me trials, but there was also interest from Liverpool, and I had to pick – I was only young, but obviously my heart was with United at the time.”

― Jesse Lingard

“I enjoy playing for Man United, and my heart is at Man United.”

― Jesse Lingard

― Jesse White

“I like to accessorise shirts with a little ribbon tied round my collar or a country style ascot. I’ve also sewed little hearts on some of my sleeves which I’ve done for years because I always wear my heart on my sleeve so if you see a little embroidered heart on my clothes, that’s why!”

― Jessica Brown Findlay

― Jessica Brown Findlay

“My heart gets very tender when it comes to playing someone who has wronged someone else. I almost feel like it’s easier for me to play having been wronged than it is to actually feel like you had an active part in hurting someone.”

― Jessica Capshaw

― Jessie James Decker

“I think the one I’m most proud of as a songwriter is ‘Breaking Your Heart’ because it was just a different style for me. It was very – I feel like it was very old-timey Patsy Cline. It’s got a very ’50s feel to it, and I pushed myself to write those lyrics very intimately with my co-writer Ted Bruner.”

― Jessie James Decker

“I feel like my objective in music is to take a hammer and nail and chip away a piece of my heart and give it to someone, so I feel, with merch, it’s a tangible parallel of that.”

“My heart and prayers go out to all single moms because it’s tough, and I can’t imagine any teenager dealing with a baby and all those hormones raging.”

― Jill Scott

“Heartbreak was the impetus to me writing poems and music in the first place. Over the years, I had my heart broken so badly that if I didn’t find a way to get all the pain out, I was going to lose my mind. I was crazy! Like, wanting to slash tires and smash car windows. Crazy! I was so hurt that I had to write.”

― Jill Scott

“Obesity in children is growing out of control. A big part of this is economic. Fake foods are more affordable. It’s enticing people to eat more because they think they’re saving money when they’re really just buying heart disease.”

― Jim Harrison

“Kevin Durant would be welcome back in Oklahoma any time he’s willing to come, and I want to be the first one he calls. He took care of the victims of our tornadoes. He took care of families. Took care of little kids. So, he has a heart, and he’s not a bad ballplayer.”

― Jim Nantz

“The Masters runs deep in my heart; it’s a love affair that I’ve had since I was a little boy with that tournament, that club.”

― Jim Nantz

“I’ve done so much theater, and yet I never had an experience like ‘The Normal Heart.’ We could feel the reaction of the audience every night. It was visceral.”

“I’m an expert typist. I learned in high school. I would close my eyes and just type without worrying about mistakes. I tried to penetrate my heart, and as I let my thoughts drift, things bubbled up to the surface.”

― Jimmy Carter

“Girls are sitting around talking about boys, right? Or complaining about boys, when they have their heart broken or whatever, and they need music for that, right? And they need music for that. So it’s hard to find the right music. Not everyone has the right list or knows a DJ.”

― Jimmy Iovine

“I knew in my heart that I wasn’t cool, but I figured I could at least be cool by association.”

― Joanna Lumley

“Telling ourselves that fiction is in a sense true and at the same time not true is essential to the art of fiction. It’s been at the heart of fiction from the start. Fiction offers both truth, and we know it’s a flat-out lie. Sometimes it drives a novelist mad. Sometimes it energizes us.”

― Joanna Scott

― Joe Frazier

“There are places on a man’s head that are as hard as a rock. Your head’s actually stronger than your body. And you don’t have too many instruments up there workin’. But you got a lot of tools workin’ in that body: the liver, the kidneys, the heart, the lungs. You soften that up and see what happens. I lived by the body shot.”

“Winners, I am convinced, imagine their dreams first. They want it with all their heart and expect it to come true. There is, I believe, no other way to live.”

― Joe Montana

“’Paycheck,’ I thought, was a really, really good idea. I never got an opportunity, unfortunately, to read the novel, but I loved the idea of how to deal with intellectual properties. I just don’t know that we necessarily got to the heart of that particular idea. I think it became more of a chase movie than anything else.”

― Joey Jordison

“I don’t use a Beatmap; I don’t use any click track. Any time I count off, it’s just in my heart. Sometimes I’ll go off the feel of a crowd, like if they way they’re bouncing is a little quicker than the song, I might kick up the tempo a little bit. I see where the crowd is at. It’s nothing drastic, but all the tempos are from my internal clock.”

― Joey Jordison

“Everybody could use the money, but you don’t play for it – you play with your heart – and that’s a big difference you see in Barcelona. Everybody wants to play there; everybody wants to enjoy themselves. It’s maybe a small percentage, but maybe it’s the difference.”

― Johanna Konta

― Johannes Tauler

“If my mom said, ‘You better not do this!’ I’m not one of those people who go, ‘Well, I’m definitely going to do that.’ I always thought, ‘Okay, mom. I probably don’t want to do that. She’s probably looking out for me.’ If it’s someone who says, ‘You’ll never make it,’ I’ll just do what’s in my heart. It’s what I’ve always done.”

― John Daly

“It’s like fiction – the fact that somebody’s telling you a story about people who didn’t exist doesn’t make the experience of the story any less real in your heart and mind. You go through heavy emotional responses to these stories, and wrestling is a similar thing – but it’s happening in real space.”

― John Darnielle

“The more established you are, the less likely you are to do something ridiculous, which is one reason I’m proud to put out a wrestling album. If you stop and you go, ‘Well, what if people don’t like it?,’ if you’re already established in what you do, that’ll strike fear into your heart.”

― John Darnielle

“Clay Hunt was the kind of individual that has made America a great country. In 2005, when his country needed him, he enlisted in the Marine Corps. Shot in Iraq, he earned a Purple Heart, and after he recuperated, he graduated from Marine Corps Scout Sniper School and was deployed to Afghanistan.”

― John James Audubon

“The greenness of Ireland is a false greenness, after all. Not that it isn’t green – the place can still make you have to pull off and swallow one of your heart pills. It’s that the greenness doesn’t mean what it seems. It doesn’t encode a pastoral past, much less a timeless vale where wee folk trip the demesne.”

― John Jeremiah Sullivan

― John Keats

“If wrinkles must be written upon our brows, let them not be written upon the heart. The spirit should never grow old.”

― John Lasseter

“Don’t worry about the little factual details. Get to the heart of it.”

― John Lee Hancock

― John Lloyd Young

“When I first got sick, they told me I had a year to live, and I was writing my memoir really fast. There were really weird things happening with my nervous system and my heart and stuff, and it didn’t look like I was gonna make it, so I was writing really fast, and then I couldn’t write anymore.”

― John Mackey

“The thing that I always respected about Bruce Arians was, when he was at Pittsburgh, he let Ben Roethlisberger decide what he liked. I used to do that. You can put something in and force-feed it to a quarterback. But if he doesn’t like it and have his heart in it, it’s not going to be as good as when he really likes something.”

― John Madden

“I have always believed that national character… depends more on the female part of society than is generally imagined. Precepts from the lips of a beloved mother… sink deep in the heart, and make an impression which is seldom entirely effaced.”

― John Marshall

“Paris presents one incessant round of amusement & dissipation but very little, I believe – even for its inhabitants of that society – which interests the heart.

“Only by going alone in silence, without baggage, can one truly get into the heart of the wilderness. All other travel is mere dust and hotels and baggage and chatter.”

― John Muir

“The more I see of deer, the more I admire them as mountaineers. They make their way into the heart of the roughest solitudes with smooth reserve of strength, through dense belts of brush and forest encumbered with fallen trees and boulder piles, across canons, roaring streams, and snow-fields, ever showing forth beauty and courage.”

― John Muir

“All the world lies warm in one heart, yet the Sierra seems to get more light than other mountains. The weather is mostly sunshine embellished with magnificent storms, and nearly everything shines from base to summit – the rocks, streams, lakes, glaciers, irised falls, and the forests of silver fir and silver pine.”

― John Muir

“One may as well dam for water tanks the people’s cathedrals and churches, for no holier temple has ever been consecrated by the heart of man.”

― John Ortberg

― John Paul Jones

“I profess myself a citizen of the world, totally unfettered by the little, mean distinctions of climate or of country, which diminish the benevolence of the heart and set bounds to philanthropy.”

― John Paul Jones

“But when 9/11 struck, I had a change of heart. I knew the story had to be told because what happened at 9/11 is a direct result of what the economic hit men are doing.”

― John Perkins

“Is it not the business of the conductor to convey to the public in its dramatic form the central idea of a composition; and how can he convey that idea successfully if he does not enter heart and soul into the life of the music and the tale it unfolds?”

― John Philip Sousa

“Anybody can write music of a sort. But touching the public heart is quite another thing.”

― John Philip Sousa

“There is a certain phase in the life of the aged when the warmth of the heart seems to increase in direct proportion with the years.”

“You do the hundreds of things that a Christward heart does in the hope that God will put a match to those little sparks to cause it to become a conflagration in a community or in a nation.”

― John Piper

“The universe starts off with the Big Bang theory, and the first thing that emerged from the Big Bang is essentially hydrogen and then helium. And that’s what combusts in stars. Finally, stars implode, and they build heavier elements out of that. And those heavier elements are reconstituted in the heart of other stars, eventually.”

― John Rhys-Davies

“When you’ve opened your heart to a child as you have to, there’s always the fear that you may discover that the child is not viable. Losing that child is not a position you want to find yourself in.”

“Design has always been at the heart of our business.”

― John Ruskin

“About 75% of the price of gas is really dictated by crude oil. At the heart of the issue is increasing demand over a period of many years around the world. World crude oil consumption now is close to 90 million barrels a day. Most of the growth in demand is coming from China and the developing world.”

― John S. Watson

“Any kind of blockage is heart disease; when you have a blood clot anywhere, that’s heart disease. When Wilt Chamberlain died, strongest man I ever met in my life, I started paying attention.”

“Dixie has just fallen to pieces. There are little patches of Dixie. But even in the heart of Dixie – in Alabama – Dixie is slipping. They’ve stopped using the word in commercial listings.”

― John Singleton

“I think I got turned onto The Beach Boys for the first time with the ‘Endless Summer’ album in 1974. The power of that music still, to this day, bypasses the brain and goes straight to the heart. You don’t have to think about it; it’s something that you feel.”

― John Stamos

“A well-run organization turns over 10% of their organizations, including senior leadership. I don’t have the heart to do that.”

― John T. Chambers

“We seem to have lost our contact with the primordial: the idea of – call it divine revelation as opposed to something that’s learned by the human intellect – something that, if you lay yourself completely open, and you just open your heart completely, something will actually come into it.”

― John Tavener

“Risk means everything from being honest about your faith, to moving, to quitting a job that’s paying you a fortune but it’s not what’s in your heart. Risking things is one of the biggest fears we have.”

― John Wesley

“As for reputation, though it be a glorious instrument of advancing our Master’s service, yet there is a better than that: a clean heart, a single eye, and a soul full of God. A fair exchange if, by the loss of reputation, we can purchase the lowest degree of purity of heart.”

― John Wesley

“I know that I had not faith, unless the faith of a devil, the faith of Judas, that speculative, notional, airy shadow, which lives in the head, not in the heart. But what is this to the living, justifying faith, the faith that cleanses from sin?”

― John Wesley

“Men mark the passion of Christ, and print it on their heart somewhat to follow it. It was the most voluntary passion that ever was suffered, and the most painful. It was most voluntary, and so most meritorious.”

― John Wycliffe

“The magic that you find in surf music, I think, is really timeless. You know, when I was very young, I was in a surf band. Surf music is an instrumental music that still means a lot to me, not in an nostalgic way, but as something that really gets to the heart of the guitar itself.”

“’Made’ is about opening your heart to people who deserve your love and not trying to turn other people into something that they’re not: not trying to save people who don’t want to be saved. If you go down that dark path, you’re not going to end up doing any good.”

― Jon Favreau

“If someone said, ‘Jon, we need $250 million a year from now and we can make a dramatic breakthrough for ovarian cancer,’ I’d have $250 million in two months. You just work day and night if the cause in your heart is justified.”

― Jon Huntsman, Sr.

“All I’m saying is that, you know, whether we’re worth a billion, whether we’re worth a million, whether we’re worth $1,000, it’s what’s in your heart. You know, $100 a month from somebody or $50 a year for people who may be in a less economic bracket, that’s as important to the Lord.”

― Jon Huntsman, Sr.

“In Asian languages, the word for ‘mind’ and the word for ‘heart’ are same. So if you’re not hearing mindfulness in some deep way as heartfulness, you’re not really understanding it. Compassion and kindness towards oneself are intrinsically woven into it. You could think of mindfulness as wise and affectionate attention.”

― Jon Kabat-Zinn

“Mindfulness is often spoken of as the heart of Buddhist meditation. It’s not about Buddhism, but about paying attention. That’s what all meditation is, no matter what tradition or particular technique is used.”

“’Neil Young Heart of Gold’, that was a valentine to Nashville and country music in the Grand Ole Opry tradition and Hank Williams.”

― Jonathan Demme

“In ‘Heart of Gold’ at one point, there were 23 players on the stage with him. And part of what’s magic about Neil is the way he interacts with the other musicians.”

― Jonathan Demme

“Ethiopia is engraved on my heart. I first went in 1973 because I heard of a terrible famine. They were denying it even as we got the film out. The coverage destroyed the emperor’s credibility.”

“’We Were the Mulvaneys’ is perhaps the novel closest to my heart. I think of it as a valentine to a passing way of American life, and to my own particular child – and girlhood in upstate New York.

― Joyce Carol Oates

― Joyce Meyer

“God wants to help us… He loves us… we are His children. But He will not force His help on us at any time. He sees us when we struggle and fight and complain our way through things. And I believe it breaks His heart, when all we have to do is ask Him for help.”

― Joyce Meyer

― Juan Felipe Herrera

“I would want to know if, at 15, if my daughter loves me the way she does right now.

“For sure, you don’t believe the good stuff. I mean, the good stuff is just insane – wacky. If you don’t take it too much to heart, it does help when the negative stuff hits. And you know the negative stuff is coming. It’s got to! What comes up must come down.”

“I absolutely adore writing books with paranormal elements – and I love creating the often-complex worlds and/or plots that go along with those stories – but at the heart of all of that ,you have the characters, and when you get down to the core of it, it’s spending the time with the characters that is what I truly love.”

“I write what I like to read, and I enjoy love triangles in YA and adult fiction – not to mention in other media like TV, opera, theatre, and even in video games! I relish when dark and compelling characters compete for our protagonist’s heart. The doubts, the uncertainty – the jealousy! – can be breathtaking.”

― Kresley Cole

“I enjoy a good cliffhanger. As a reader, I relish that nervous feeling you get when you’re engrossed in a story, but in the back of your mind you’re aware that there aren’t that many pages left. How will it end? Everything can’t be wrapped up! This can’t end! Then it does, and your heart seems to stop.”

― Kresley Cole

“If I could sum up ‘Shadow’s Claim’ in six words: cage fights with hot alpha males. Seriously, though, while the fights are the backdrop for Trehan and Bettina’s love story, the main emphasis is on how Trehan – a pitiless master assassin – wages the ultimate battle to win her heart.”

“A lot of kids are bullied because of their sexuality, and that breaks my heart, because they’re going to have to – high school’s hard enough to overcome.

“Thor is magical, yes, but it is the magic of reality. His hammer was crafted ‘in the heart of a dying star,’ but so were you! Most of the atoms that make you up are in fact the innards of a ball of gas in space that got so heavy that it exploded. Stars died so that you could live, as physicist Lawrence Krauss would say.”

“Usually, in musical theater, if you sing operatically or if you sing in a legit style, you’re the heart of the show. You maybe get to be moving and do dramatic stuff, but it’s very rare to be that funny.”

― Laura Benanti

“For me, even if I’m singing to a very large audience, like in ‘The Sound of Music Live’ or in the ‘She Loves Me’ broadcast, I try to imagine that I am just singing to each individual. It doesn’t change my energy other than being perhaps a bit more nervous. I try to sing to each person and right into their individual heart.”

― Laura Robson

“I want to be able to say what’s on my mind and in my heart and what I think is helpful and useful without somebody getting angry, some special interest group deciding this is the time to silence a voice of dissent and attack affiliates, attack sponsors. I’m sort of done with that.”

“’Boom’ is my heart. The ‘kack’ is my soul.

It was like the love of it – my heart and soul.”

Stories like that stay with you forever.”
