a.d. X Kal. Aug.


Cor ad cor loquitur.
“Heart to heart,” literally “A heart speaks to a heart.”

A Latin saying that originated in the autobiographical Confessions of the influential early Christian writer Augustine, and is echoed in our English expression “heart to heart talk.” This phrase was also the motto of Cardinal J. H. Newman in the nineteenth century.

From Latin for the New Millennium
