People use metaphor with the word "heart" every time they say phrases like: - "Oh my God, you have no heart" - "Don't you have a heart?" - "I love you …from the bottom of my heart" Metaphors like these are acceptable, and are used mainly as a figure of speech. But the heart is a body organ that has not been scientifically proven to be connected to emotions. There is a phenomenon in the body that may be connected to how the nerves connect to one another from the brain to the heart. When people are hurt mentally, their "hearts" can physically feel a sensation of "void." Phenomenons like that are yet not understood by scientists. If a person receives a bad impression in a tragic moment, usually if a heart attack does occur it is due to a startle to the heart which may deprive oxygen access from lungs, to heart, to brain. That is why people who have received a shock can sometimes have heart attacks and brain strokes. Then there are metaphors like: 'Home is where the heart is' 'Heart of stone that makes things all right 'Heart broken' The heart of a lion

There needs to be some more information here. It does not show the passage so not sure which piece of Thoreau's you are talking about.
