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_.
A hollow, muscular organ, which, by contracting rhythmically, keeps up the circulation of the blood.
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.
Courage; courageous purpose; spirit.
an early developing organ which fuctions as a pump for blood in the embryo and adult. In the human the heart begins as a simple tube and undergoes complex folding and reorganization to form the 4 chambered heart. (More? Heart Notes)
A gemstone cut into the shape of a heart. The shape of love.
Both in Scripture and common usage heart presupposes the very center of everything. The heart of a person is then considered to be the very center of his total being. The center of a person's emotions, moral life, desire, judgment and will. To say we love God with all our heart would then mean that we love God totally. We love Him with all our (physical) mind, body and strength. We also love God with all the (spiritual) facilities of the soul.
The shape formed by the two STEEL HEADS look like a HEART. (Genesis mentions LOVE and PASSION, which are emotions related to the HEART. the HEART is also the CORE.

The name says it all. The shape of love.
No surprises here! A heart is a symbol of true love and joy
The hollow muscular organ that pumps blood throughout the body.
The multicellular, chambered, muscular structure that pumps blood through the circulatory system by alternately contracting and relaxing. PICTURE
the muscular organ composed of cardiac muscle that is responsible for pumping blood throughout the body.
The muscular organ that pumps blood through the circulatory system. Mammals and birds have a four-chambered heart, with a left atrium and ventricle and a right atrium and ventricle. The right half of the heart receives deoxygenated blood from the body and pumps it to the lungs, while the left half receives oxygenated blood from the lungs and pumps it to the body.
A four chamber, muscular organ that pumps blood through the body.
The four-chambered, muscular organ found behind the breastbone and between the lungs. The four chambers include the right and left atria and the right and left ventricles. Blood enters the right half of the heart and is pumped into the lungs to obtain oxygen. Oxygen-rich blood returns from the lungs into the left side of the heart where it is pumped out to the rest of the body.
Hollow muscular organ which receives the blood from the veins and propels it into the arteries.
Body part that pumps blood throughout the body. Put your hand on your heart and feel it beat.
muscular blood pump; three chambered in frogs

Love, mortality, love of God Footstone A stone marking the foot of a grave
Sharks have a two-chambered heart, with an atrium (also called the auricle) and a ventricle. The heart is an S-shaped tube that is located in the head region of the shark. The blood is pumped by the heart through the afferent branchial arteries (ventral aorta) to capillaries in the gills (where the blood is oxygenated). The blood then flows through efferent branchial arteries (paired dorsal aorta), then through the tissues of the body, and then back to heart in veins.!-- google_ad_client = "pub-8040656654961143"; google_ad_width = 468; google_ad_height = 60; google_ad_format = "468x60_as"; google_ad_type = "text_image"; google_ad_channel =""; google_color_border = "003399"; google_color_bg = "003399"; google_color_link = "FFFFFF"; google_color_url = "FFFFFF"; google_color_text = "FFFFFF";
The muscle that pumps blood received from veins into arteries throughout the body. It is positioned in the chest behind the sternum (breastbone; in front of the trachea, esophagus, and aorta; and above the diaphragm muscle that separates the chest and abdominal cavities. The normal heart is about the size of a closed fist, and weighs about 10.5 ounces. It is cone-shaped, with the point of the cone pointing down to the left. Two-thirds of the heart lies in the left side of the chest with the balance in the right chest. See the entire definition of Heart
A set piece in the shape of a heart, which can be filled solid with flowers or have an "outline" of the shape with an open center. The shape is often covered with flowers, foliage or fabric and accented with a cluster of flowers. This design is usually sent by a relative or family member to symbolize their love.
the organ of the body which pumps blood around; also, the most important part of a person or thing; the deepest and truest expression of a person's being ("He loves his wife with all his heart.")
A muscular organ that pumps blood through the body. The heart can be donated and transplanted.
The irrepressible impulse to give love and experience joy. The essence of God, heart is the foundation of His being and oneness, the source of His love and the origin of His purpose in making the creation. In creation, heart is the core of human internal character and human mind, and the source of human purpose and love. The primary manifestation of heart is the parental desire to create and love offspring.
Your heart is a special muscle located in your chest. It pumps blood all around your body.
Muscular pump which circulates the blood.
The heart is a pump which circulates blood through an animal's body. The heart has four separate sections called chambers. The heart also has a left side and a right side. The two smaller chambers on the top of the heart are called the left atrium and the right atrium. The two larger, more muscular chambers at the bottom of the heart are called the left ventricle and the right ventricle.
As with all creatures, this functions by circulating the blood through the body, thereby delivering oxygen and nutrients to the various organs where they are required.
A Heart on its own is an emblem of immortality signifying the soul. See also 'Scales'. The small heart between the initials of the husband and wife signifies 'matrimonial love'. An upside down heart normally signifies death and is similar to the mortality emblem of the heart pieced by Death's dart.
Muscle which pumps Blood around the body, its Rate and Rhythm are controlled by electrical conduction
The heart is a muscular organ that pumps blood around the body.
A symbol of love and life, protector against the evil eye, a feminine symbol, the heart has been fashioned out of almost every imaginable material, but in ancient times was preferably made of cornelian, rubies, bloodstones, red jasper or garnets.
The heart is a pear shaped, muscular organ in vertebrates, responsible for pumping blood through the blood vessels by repeated, rhythmic contractions, or a similar structure in annelids, mollusks, and arthropods. The term cardiac (as in cardiology) means "related to the heart" and comes from the Greek ÎºÎ±ÏÎ´Î¹Î¬, kardia, for "heart." The heart is composed of cardiac muscle, an involuntary muscle tissue which is found only within this organ.
The heart has long been used as a symbol to refer to the spiritual, emotional, moral, and in the past also intellectual core of a human being. As the heart was once widely believed to be the seat of the human mind, the word continues to be used poetically to refer to the soul, and stylized depictions of hearts are extremely prevalent symbols representing love. However, more realistic depictions of human hearts tend to have macabre connotations of death and violence, quite unlike the concepts associated with the poetic and symbolic heart.
