Now the VOA Special English program Words and their Stories.

Each week, this program explains the many meanings of English expressions. Today’s expressions include a very important word ”heart”. We will try to get to the heart of the matter to better understand the most important things about words and their stories. So, take heart, have no fear about learning new expressions. Besides, popular English words can be fun. There is no need or a heavy heart. Such feelings of sadness would only break my heart or make me feel unhappy and hopeless. Now let us suppose you and I were speaking freely about something private. We would be having a heart-to-heart discussion. I might speak from the bottom of my heart, or say things honestly and truthfully. I might even open up my heart to you and tell you a secret. I would speak with all my heart or with great feeling. When a person shares her feelings freely and openly like this, you might say, she wears her heart on her sleeve or on her clothing. Her emotions are protected. If we had an honest discussion, both of us would know that the other person’s heart is in the right place. For example, I would know that you are a kind-hearted and well-meaning person. And if you are a very good person, I would even say that you have a heart of gold. However, you might have a change of heart based on what I tell you. Our discussion might cause you to change the way you feel about something. But let us suppose you get angry over what I tell you, or worse, you feel no sympathy or understanding for me or my situation. If this happens, I might think that you have a heart of stone. And if you say something to make me frightened or worried, my heart might stand still or skip a beat. Yet, even though you may be angry, I would know that at heart, you are a kind person. In reality, you do care. And any argument between us would not cause me to lose heart or feel a sense of loss. My heart goes out to anyone who loses a friend over an argument. It really is a sad situation and I feel sympathy with the people involved. I promised that what I have told you today is true. Cross my heart, I really wanted to play some music at the end of this feature. In fact, I had my heart set on it. So here it is. Don’t Go breaking my heart by Elton John.
