„My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here,
My heart's in the Highlands, a-chasing the deer;
A-chasing the wild deer, and following the roe,
My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go.“

—  Robert Burns, My Heart's in the Highlands, st. 1

„Star of my heart, I follow from afar.“

—  Vachel Lindsay American poet 1879 - 1931
Context: Star of my heart, I follow from afar. Sweet Love on high, lead on where shepherds are, Where Time is not, and only dreamers are. Star from of old, the Magi-Kings are dead And a foolish Saxon seeks the manger-bed. O lead me to Jehovah's child Across this dreamland lone and wild, Then will I speak this prayer unsaid, And kiss his little haloed head— "My star and I, we love thee, little child."

„Half of my heart's got a real good imagination, half of my heart's got you... Half of my hearts got a right mind to tell you that half of my heart won't do.“

—  John Mayer, John Mayer - Battle Studies
Context: I was born in the arms of imaginary friends, Free to roam, made a home out of everywhere I've been. Then you come crashing in, like the realest thing, Trying my best to understand all that your love can bring.Oh half of my heart's got a grip on the situation; Half of my heart takes time. Half of my heart's got a right mind to tell you That I can't keep loving you (can't keep loving you) Oh, with half of my heart. Half of My Heart
