Heart \Heart\, v. i. To form a compact center or heart; as, a hearting cabbage. [1913 Webster]

Heart \Heart\ (h[aum]rt), v. t. To give heart to; to hearten; to encourage; to inspirit. [Obs.] [1913 Webster] My cause is hearted; thine hath no less reason. --Shak. [1913 Webster]

Heart \Heart\ (h[aum]rt), n. [OE. harte, herte, heorte, AS. heorte; akin to OS. herta, OFies. hirte, D. hart, OHG. herza, G. herz, Icel. hjarta, Sw. hjerta, Goth. ha['i]rt[=o], Lith. szirdis, Russ. serdtse, Ir. cridhe, L. cor, Gr. kardi`a, kh^r. [root]277. Cf. {Accord}, {Discord}, {Cordial}, 4th {Core}, {Courage}.] 1. (Anat.) A hollow, muscular organ, which, by contracting rhythmically, keeps up the circulation of the blood. [1913 Webster] Why does my blood thus muster to my heart! --Shak. [1913 Webster] Note: In adult mammals and birds, the heart is four-chambered, the right auricle and ventricle being completely separated from the left auricle and ventricle; and the blood flows from the systemic veins to the right auricle, thence to the right ventricle, from which it is forced to the lungs, then returned to the left auricle, thence passes to the left ventricle, from which it is driven into the systemic arteries. See Illust. under {Aorta}. In fishes there are but one auricle and one ventricle, the blood being pumped from the ventricle through the gills to the system, and thence returned to the auricle. In most amphibians and reptiles, the separation of the auricles is partial or complete, and in reptiles the ventricles also are separated more or less completely. The so-called lymph hearts, found in many amphibians, reptiles, and birds, are contractile sacs, which pump the lymph into the veins. [1913 Webster] 2. The seat of the affections or sensibilities, collectively or separately, as love, hate, joy, grief, courage, and the like; rarely, the seat of the understanding or will; -- usually in a good sense, when no epithet is expressed; the better or lovelier part of our nature; the spring of all our actions and purposes; the seat of moral life and character; the moral affections and character itself; the individual disposition and character; as, a good, tender, loving, bad, hard, or selfish heart. [1913 Webster] Hearts are dust, hearts' loves remain. --Emerson. [1913 Webster] 3. The nearest the middle or center; the part most hidden and within; the inmost or most essential part of any body or system; the source of life and motion in any organization; the chief or vital portion; the center of activity, or of energetic or efficient action; as, the heart of a country, of a tree, etc. [1913 Webster] Exploits done in the heart of France. --Shak. [1913 Webster] Peace subsisting at the heart Of endless agitation. --Wordsworth. [1913 Webster] 4. Courage; courageous purpose; spirit. [1913 Webster] Eve, recovering heart, replied. --Milton. [1913 Webster] The expelled nations take heart, and when they fly from one country invade another. --Sir W. Temple. [1913 Webster] 5. Vigorous and efficient activity; power of fertile production; condition of the soil, whether good or bad. [1913 Webster] That the spent earth may gather heart again. --Dryden. [1913 Webster] 6. That which resembles a heart in shape; especially, a roundish or oval figure or object having an obtuse point at one end, and at the other a corresponding indentation, -- used as a symbol or representative of the heart. [1913 Webster] 7. One of the suits of playing cards, distinguished by the figure or figures of a heart; as, hearts are trumps. [1913 Webster] 8. Vital part; secret meaning; real intention. [1913 Webster] And then show you the heart of my message. --Shak. [1913 Webster] 9. A term of affectionate or kindly and familiar address. ``I speak to thee, my heart.'' --Shak. [1913 Webster] Note: Heart is used in many compounds, the most of which need no special explanation; as, heart-appalling, heart-breaking, heart-cheering, heart-chilled, heart-expanding, heart-free, heart-hardened, heart-heavy, heart-purifying, heart-searching, heart-sickening, heart-sinking, heart-sore, heart-stirring, heart-touching, heart-wearing, heart-whole, heart-wounding, heart-wringing, etc. [1913 Webster] {After one's own heart}, conforming with one's inmost approval and desire; as, a friend after my own heart. The Lord hath sought him a man after his own heart. --1 Sam. xiii. 14. {At heart}, in the inmost character or disposition; at bottom; really; as, he is at heart a good man. {By heart}, in the closest or most thorough manner; as, to know or learn by heart. ``Composing songs, for fools to get by heart'' (that is, to commit to memory, or to learn thoroughly). --Pope. {to learn by heart}, to memorize. {For my heart}, for my life; if my life were at stake. [Obs.] ``I could not get him for my heart to do it.'' --Shak. {Heart bond} (Masonry), a bond in which no header stone stretches across the wall, but two headers meet in the middle, and their joint is covered by another stone laid header fashion. --Knight. {Heart and hand}, with enthusiastic co["o]peration. {Heart hardness}, hardness of heart; callousness of feeling; moral insensibility. --Shak. {Heart heaviness}, depression of spirits. --Shak. {Heart point} (Her.), the fess point. See {Escutcheon}. {Heart rising}, a rising of the heart, as in opposition. {Heart shell} (Zo["o]l.), any marine, bivalve shell of the genus {Cardium} and allied genera, having a heart-shaped shell; esp., the European {Isocardia cor}; -- called also {heart cockle}. {Heart sickness}, extreme depression of spirits. {Heart and soul}, with the utmost earnestness. {Heart urchin} (Zo["o]l.), any heartshaped, spatangoid sea urchin.

[1913 Webster]

Heart According to the Bible, the heart is the centre not only of spiritual activity, but of all the operations of human life. "Heart" and "soul" are often used interchangeably (Deut. 6:5; 26:16; comp. Matt. 22:37; Mark 12:30, 33), but this is not generally the case. The heart is the "home of the personal life," and hence a man is designated, according to his heart, wise (1 Kings 3:12, etc.), pure (Ps. 24:4; Matt. 5:8, etc.), upright and righteous (Gen. 20:5, 6; Ps. 11:2; 78:72), pious and good (Luke 8:15), etc. In these and such passages the word "soul" could not be substituted for "heart." The heart is also the seat of the conscience (Rom. 2:15). It is naturally wicked (Gen. 8:21), and hence it contaminates the whole life and character (Matt. 12:34; 15:18; comp. Eccl. 8:11; Ps. 73:7). Hence the heart must be changed, regenerated (Ezek. 36:26; 11:19; Ps. 51:10-14), before a man can willingly obey God. The process of salvation begins in the heart by the believing reception of the testimony of God, while the rejection of that testimony hardens the heart (Ps. 95:8; Prov. 28:14; 2 Chr. 36:13). "Hardness of heart evidences itself by light views of sin; partial acknowledgment and confession of it; pride and conceit; ingratitude; unconcern about the word and ordinances of God; inattention to divine providences; stifling convictions of conscience; shunning reproof; presumption, and general ignorance of divine things."

HEART, n. An automatic, muscular blood-pump. Figuratively, this useful organ is said to be the esat of emotions and sentiments -- a very pretty fancy which, however, is nothing but a survival of a once universal belief. It is now known that the sentiments and emotions reside in the stomach, being evolved from food by chemical action of the gastric fluid. The exact process by which a beefsteak becomes a feeling -- tender or not, according to the age of the animal from which it was cut; the successive stages of elaboration through which a caviar sandwich is transmuted to a quaint fancy and reappears as a pungent epigram; the marvelous functional methods of converting a hard-boiled egg into religious contrition, or a cream-puff into a sigh of sensibility -- these things have been patiently ascertained by M. Pasteur, and by him expounded with convincing lucidity. (See, also, my monograph, _The Essential Identity of the Spiritual Affections and Certain Intestinal Gases Freed in Digestion_ -- 4to, 687 pp.) In a scientific work entitled, I believe, _Delectatio Demonorum_ (John Camden Hotton, London, 1873) this view of the sentiments receives a striking illustration; and for further light consult Professor Dam's famous treatise on _Love as a Product of Alimentary Maceration_.

SOUL, n. A spiritual entity concerning which there hath been brave disputation. Plato held that those souls which in a previous state of existence (antedating Athens) had obtained the clearest glimpses of eternal truth entered into the bodies of persons who became philosophers. Plato himself was a philosopher. The souls that had least contemplated divine truth animated the bodies of usurpers and despots. Dionysius I, who had threatened to decapitate the broad- browed philosopher, was a usurper and a despot. Plato, doubtless, was not the first to construct a system of philosophy that could be quoted against his enemies; certainly he was not the last. "Concerning the nature of the soul," saith the renowned author of _Diversiones Sanctorum_, "there hath been hardly more argument than that of its place in the body. Mine own belief is that the soul hath her seat in the abdomen -- in which faith we may discern and interpret a truth hitherto unintelligible, namely that the glutton is of all men most devout. He is said in the Scripture to 'make a god of his belly' -- why, then, should he not be pious, having ever his Deity with him to freshen his faith? Who so well as he can know the might and majesty that he shrines? Truly and soberly, the soul and the stomach are one Divine Entity; and such was the belief of Promasius, who nevertheless erred in denying it immortality. He had observed that its visible and material substance failed and decayed with the rest of the body after death, but of its immaterial essence he knew nothing. This is what we call the Appetite, and it survives the wreck and reek of mortality, to be rewarded or punished in another world, according to what it hath demanded in the flesh. The Appetite whose coarse clamoring was for the unwholesome viands of the general market and the public refectory shall be cast into eternal famine, whilst that which firmly through civilly insisted on ortolans, caviare, terrapin, anchovies, _pates de foie gras_ and all such Christian comestibles shall flesh its spiritual tooth in the souls of them forever and ever, and wreak its divine thirst upon the immortal parts of the rarest and richest wines ever quaffed here below. Such is my religious faith, though I grieve to confess that neither His Holiness the Pope nor His Grace the Archbishop of Canterbury (whom I equally and profoundly revere) will assent to its dissemination."
