from the basement of my heart

from the basement of my heart
[fruhm th uh beys-muhnt uhv mahy hahrt] 

phrase 🌟

  • a statement made to illustrate that one is speaking very sincerely. 
  • Archie's unique version of the classic statement "from the bottom of my heart"
  • The meaning is "with sincere and deep feeling." Two ideas on the origin, both intuitive rather than scholarly: People often feel emotion in their chests, specifically in a place that's about where the bottom of the heart is. When thinking of the heart as the seat of emotion, people may conceive of it as a (metaphorical) container that fills up with feeling, so that "from the bottom" means the heart is filled through-and-through with love or gratitude or whatever, not just partly filled. (Think of the bottom of the inside of the heart, not the bottom of the outer surface.) The opposite kind of imagery appears in "off the top of my head," meaning that an idea is superficial. (source: phrases.org.uk)
  • NOTE: a basement is a story of a building, partly or whollyunderground; often the lowermost portion of a structure and can confuse some because it is not an architectural feature found in the homes and dwellings native to many "hot" or desert climates.
"Truestory for reals when I said I luvluvlove you guys I meant it from the basement of my heart!!
Yes!! ❤ ❤ ❤"
