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 thing 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 for 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 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 not 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.
