It is unjust and absurd of those advancing in years, to expect of the young that confidence should come all and only on their side: the human heart, at whatever age, opens only to the heart that opens in return.
--
Helen (1834), ch. 7; Tales and Novels, vol. 19, p. 62.

You know when you give your love away
it opens your heart,
everything is new.
And you know time will always find a way
to let your heart believe it's true.

 
Enya
 

Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses. You build up a whole armor, for years, so nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life... You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' or 'how very perceptive' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a body-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. Nothing should be able to do that. Especially not love. I hate love.

 
Neil Gaiman
 

Homeóthat blessed word, which opens to the human heart the most perfect glimpse of Heaven, and helps to carry it thither, as on an angelís wings.

 
Lydia Maria Child
 

Prayer opens the heart to God, and it is the means by which the soul, though empty, is filled by God.

 
John Buchan
 

We read his words and our heart opens. Suddenly we realize our home is with God.
