Quotes on the Heart

“I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.”
Psalm 119:32

“And what is the merciful heart? It is the heart’s burning for the sake of the entire creation, for men, for birds, for animals, for demons, and for every created thing.”
St. Isaac the Syrian

“The heart itself is but a small vessel, yet dragons are there, and there are also lions; there are poisonous beasts and all the treasures of evil. But there too is God, the angels, the life and the kingdom, the light and the apostles, the heavenly cities and the treasuries of grace—all things are there.”
St. Makarios the Great

“Pity the man who abandons the path and does not follow it, and who has lost his heart and does not know how to recover it. When people’s dogs and fowls are lost, they go to look for them, and yet, when they have lost their hearts, they do not go to look for them. The way of learning is none other than going after the lost heart.”
Mencius
