The Other Side of the Heart


The words “heart” or “from the heart” have, throughout my lifetime, referred almost exclusively to sympathy, pity, or guilt. This was a grave error.

A lack of upward movements of the heart results in a failure to thrive; not of the body, but of the soul; of the inner man. In other words, we cannot be complete, healthy beings without it.
