    The Heart quotes by:    

If we are to pray aright, perhaps it is quite necessary that we pray contrary to our own heart. Not what we want to pray is important, but what God wants us to pray. The richness of the Word of God ought to determine our prayer, not the poverty of our heart.

    Author: Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Prayer does not mean simply to pour out one's heart. It means rather to find the way to God and to speak with him, whether the heart is full or empty.

    Author: Dietrich Bonhoeffer

It is only when the whole heart is gripped with the passion of prayer that the life-giving fire descends, for none but the earnest man gets access to the ear of God.

    Author: E.M. Bounds

The beginning of men's rebellion against God was, and is, the lack of a thankful heart.

    Author: Francis Schaeffer

Atheism is rather in the lip than in the heart of Man.

    Author: Francis Bacon

If thou desire the love of God and man, be humble, for the proud heart, as it loves none but itself, is beloved of none but itself.

    Author: Francis Quarles

Reason is always a kind of brute force; those who appeal to the head rather than the heart, however pallid and polite, are necessarily men of violence. We speak of 'touching' a man's heart, but we can do nothing to his head but hit it.

    Author: G.K. Chesterton

There is a road from the eye to heart that does not go through the intellect.

    Author: G.K. Chesterton

True piety hath in it nothing weak, nothing sad, nothing constrained. It enlarges the heart; it is simple, free, and attractive.

    Author: Francois Fenelon

Sordid and infamous sensuality, the most dreadful evil that issued from the box of Pandora, corrupts the entire heart and eradicates every virtue.

    Author: Francois Fenelon

Beauty is mysterious as well as terrible. God and devil are fighting there, and the battlefield is the heart of man.

    Author: Fyodor Dostoevsky

When a man argues for victory and not for truth, he is sure of just one ally, that is the devil. Not the defeat of the intellect, but the acceptance of the heart is the only true object in fighting with the sword of the spirit.
