Message of the Heart: The Innermost Part of One’s Being

I was curious about the idiom warm the cockles of your heart … as I thought being in that state might relate to our capacity to feel appreciation or gratitude [as the Hathors speak of]. That is to say: If you were in a state of feeling that something “warmed the cockles of your heart,” I would think that you were in a state of appreciation or gratitude … [at least going toward feeling] unconditional love.

I found an answer to the origin of the idiom, by Michael Quinion’s World Wide Words, at http://www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-coc2.htm

*** BEGIN FAIR USE QUOTE***

“Q. From Craig Bodhi: I’m curious about the idiom warm the cockles of your heart.

“A. {Michael Quinion} It’s one of the more lovely idioms in the language, isn’t it? Something that warms the cockles of one’s heart induces a glow of pleasure, sympathy, affection, or some such similar emotion. What gets warmed is the innermost part of one’s being. It’s not that surprising that it should be associated with the heart, that being the presumed seat of the emotions for most people.”

*** END FAIR USE QUOTE***

{http://www.worldwidewords.org/copyright.htm

“You do not need to ask permission (if you are a teacher) who wants to use pieces for educational purposes. However, it would be good to hear about your proposed use.

“You’re more than welcome, of course, to refer to pieces, comment on them or criticise them, so long as you don’t quote more than a small part of them. You may also copy and store copies of pieces for your private use or for schoolwork or for research purposes. All this is permitted under the usual copyright fair use provisions.”

And so it is:

Mr. Quinion refers to Fair Use as provided for in accordance with Title 17 U.S.C. Section 107 of the US Copyright Act (Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use) The US law says:

1) The fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phono-records or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.

2) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;

3) the nature of the copyrighted work;

4) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole.}
