A collection of motivational quotes and sayings on heart.

Heart Quotes For Those Who Are Caught Up In Following The Crowd

Heart is technically an organ that pumps the blood through the circulatory system. But poetically, heart is the centre of a person’s emotions and thoughts. Compassion, love, empathy that we feel towards someone is all centralized by our heart. We are usually raised and guided to polish our cognitive thinking in order to meet the challenges and questions that life throws at us. We are, however, not taught the art of ‘Follow Your Heart,’ theory which simply means doing what gives you satisfaction, listening to your intuition, being yourself, and following your instincts. However, there are endless examples of people who accomplished their dreams simply by following their heart which lead them towards the fulfilment of their goals, passion and purpose of life. For those who are still not listening to their heart, be it for choosing a career or proposing your beloved, we bring to you a compilation of motivating and insightful quotes and thoughts by eminent speakers, poets, leaders, celebrities, philosophers and extraordinary thinkers that will make your heart rule your mind. Go through the empowering quotes and sayings that will inspire you to follow your heart.
