Your heart is "the legendary muscle that wants and grieves" according to Robert Pinskey. No other organ in your body has enjoyed as much mystery and critical acclaim throughout the history of humanity than the heart.
It has for eons been identified as the center of the human body, mind, and spirit. In ancient texts across a wide variety of cultures the heart is identified as the emotional seat or the seat of life.
