Itís no accident many accuse me of conducting public affairs with my heart instead of my head. Well, what if I do? . . . Those who donít know how to weep with their whole heart donít know how to laugh either.

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.

Gilbert Keith Chesterton

"Weep," said Athos, "weep, heart full of love, youth, and life! Alas, would I could weep like you!"

Alexandre Dumas

I have been young, but now am old. I have spent a whole life-time in battling against infidelity with the weapons of apologetic science; but I have become ever more and more convinced that the way to the heart does not lie through the head; and that the only way to the conversion of the head lies through a converted heart which already tastes the living fruits of the gospel.

Friedrich Tholuck

Ukraine, Ukraine! My heart, my mother! When I remember your fate, my heart will weep!

Taras Shevchenko

Once the curtain is raised, the actor ceases to belong to himself. He belongs to his character, to his author, to his public. He must do the impossible to identify himself with the first, not to betray the second, and not to disappoint the third. And to this end the actor must forget his personality and throw aside his joys and sorrows. He must present the public with the reality of a being who for him is only a fiction. With his own eyes, he must shed the tears of the other. With his own voice, he must groan the anguish of the other. His own heart beats as if it would burst, for it is the other's heart that beats in his heart. And when he retires from a tragic or dramatic scene, if he has properly rendered his character, he must be panting and exhausted.
