Markus Zusak
“A human doesn't have a heart like mine. The human heart is a line, whereas my own is a circle, and I have the endless ability to be in the right place at the right time. The consequence of this is that I'm always finding humans at their best and worst. I see their ugly and their beauty, and I wonder how the same thing can be both. Still, they have one thing I envy. Humans, if nothing else, have the good sense to die.”
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

Tite Kubo

That joins sky and earth that otherwise never touch,
Could I join two hearts as well?”

C.S. Lewis
“There is no safe investment. To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket – safe, dark, motionless, airless – it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The alternative to tragedy, or at least to the risk of tragedy, is damnation. The only place outside Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers and perturbations of love is Hell.”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

Louisa May Alcott
“Jo had learned that hearts, like flowers, cannot be rudely handled, but must open naturally…”

Gaston Leroux, The Phantom of the Opera

Graham Greene
“Of two hearts one is always warm and one is always cold: the cold heart is more precious than diamonds: the warm heart has no value and is thrown away.”
Graham Greene, The Heart of the Matter

“I guess I'm pretty much of a lone wolf. I don't say I don't like people at all but, to tell you the truth I only like it then if I have a chance to look deep into their hearts and their minds.”
Bela Lugosi

Catherynne M. Valente
“Hearts set about finding other hearts the moment they are born, and between them, they weave nets so frightfully strong and tight that you end up bound forever in hopeless knots, even to the shadow of a beast you knew and loved long ago.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There

Michael Connelly
“There were a billion lights out there on the horizon and I knew that all of them put together weren't enough to light the darkness in the hearts of some men.”
Michael Connelly, The Scarecrow

“If so many men, so many minds, certainly so many hearts, so many kinds of love.”
Leo Tolstoy

Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There

Tomi Adeyemi
“Good hearts don't leave scars like that.”
Tomi Adeyemi, Children of Blood and Bone

Roman Payne
“Champagne arrived in flûtes on trays, and we emptied them with gladness in our hearts... for when feasts are laid and classical music is played, where champagne is drunk once the sun has sunk and the season of summer is alive in spicy bloom, and beautiful women fill the room, and are generous with laughter and smiles... these things fill men's hearts with joy and remind one that life’s bounty is not always fleeting but can be captured, and enjoyed. It is in writing about this scene that I relive this night in my soul.”
Roman Payne

Carl Sagan
“To live in the hearts we leave behind is to live forever.”
Carl Sagan, Billions & Billions: Thoughts on Life and Death at the Brink of the Millennium

Catherynne M. Valente
“For though, as we have said, all children are heartless, this is not precisely true of teenagers. Teenage hearts are raw and new, fast and fierce, and they do not know their own strength. Neither do they know reason or restraint, and if you want to know the truth, a goodly number of grown-up hearts never learn it.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There

Haruki Murakami
“Our hearts are not stones. A stone may disintegrate in time and lose its outward form. But hearts never disintegrate. They have no outward form, and whether good or evil, we can always communicate them to one another.”
Haruki Murakami, After the Quake

Charles Yu
“You want to tell a story? Grow a heart. Grow two. Now, with the second heart, smash the first one into bits. Gross, right? A bloody pulpy liquid mess. Look at it, try to make sense of it. Realize you can't. Because there is no sense. Ask your computer to print out a list of every lie you have ever told. Ask yourself how much of the universe you have ever really seen. Look in the mirror. Are you sure you're you? Are you sure you didn't slip out of yourself in the middle of the night, and someone else slipped into you, without you or you or any of you even noticing?”
Charles Yu, How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe

Amy Leigh Mercree
“What if it becomes less about how we look and more about how much we care? What if it becomes less about how much money we earn and more about how much we share our good fortune? Imagine a world where who we are in our hearts is the ultimate status symbol.”
Amy Leigh Mercree

Peter Kreeft
“Everything smaller than Heaven bores us because only Heaven is bigger than our hearts.”
Peter Kreeft, Jesus-Shock

“He could tell by the way animals walked that they were keeping time to some kind of music. Maybe it was the song in their own hearts that they walked to.”
Laura Adams Armer, Waterless Mountain

Tomas Tranströmer
“It is still beautiful to hear the heart beat
but often the shadow seems more real than the body.”
Tomas Tranströmer
