Having a heart of gold is when you think of others before yourself. And It’s majorly denying yourself to help others, give to others, and having good intentions for others than yourself.

The person with a heart of gold is nice, kind, caring, and an all-around good person. A heart of gold also means someone who is really honest and always well-intentioned. To have a heart of gold is to be extremely kind and helpful to others.

Heart of gold is also an idiomatic expression indicating that a person has a kind, generous and caring personality. Its meaning is rooted in traditional symbolism relating to the properties of gold.

It is sometimes used to indicate a contrast between a person’s appearance and behaviour by suggesting that the individual has a good heart underneath an exterior that suggests otherwise.

The first recorded use of the phrase occurred in a play from 1553, “Ralph Roister Doister.” This farce, regarded as the first comedy written in English, concerns the unsuccessful efforts of Ralph, a buffoon, to woo the beautiful Christian Constance. Among the other endearments Ralph bestowed on her was “my heart of gold”.

This informed the reason Eze Ifeanyi Godwin Anyaogu on Sunday 17 March 2024 dole out bags of rice and other food items to Igbos under the three local government area under his constituency as Eze Ndi Igbo na Kosofe, adding that he cannot enjoy his sleep for days since he gathered that palliative shared in Kosofe LGA was denied some tribes.

In its first use, the term clearly described a man being praised for her excellent personality, as well as describing Anyaogu’s love for his people.

In medieval symbolism, gold represented the pinnacle of luxury. Due to its rarity and value, it was considered the noblest of all metals and thought to represent positive qualities of the human spirit such as generosity, justice, and courage.

The symbolic value of gold can be seen in other expressions such as “golden age,” referring to a lost age of greatness, or “golden boy,” signifying a promising youngster. Like gold, the heart has played an important role in symbolism throughout history.

Medieval thinkers believed the heart to be the seat of emotion and passion. This symbolism permeates modern language in phrases such as “matters of the heart” or “to have a good heart”. By combining these two potent symbols, the phrase, “heart of gold” suggests a person with a kind, generous and noble personality.

The contrast with external appearance appears especially in phrases describing fictional characters. A particular type of leading man is commonly known as the “scoundrel with a heart of gold” while the “hooker with a heart of gold” is a well-worn literary troupe.
