Healthy Heart Vocabulary Text

Hi, this is AJ, welcome to the vocabulary lesson for "Healthy Heart." Let's get started.

Our first word is fibers, fibers. So in the story there was quote from Herman Melville,

he said, “A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men." Fibers are really like

strings, basically, it's just strings. It's just long strings. Usually we talk about fibers, for

example, in clothing. So if you have, you know...your clothes are made of lots of little

fibers that are woven together, that are put together. Each individual string is a fiber,

so fiber.

So he's saying we're connected by a thousand strings. So, obviously not really, but if

you think about it kind of poetically it's a metaphor. So you can imagine that we're

connected in a thousand different ways to other people. We cannot be separate.

That's what the quote means.

Alright and then next we have the phrase moved by. The sentence says "Perhaps this

explains why we are often moved by people caring deeply for one another." Now you

know the normal meaning of move, to move, but to be moved by something. I was

moved by the movie, for example. It has a different meaning. When you say was

moved by something, it means that you felt strong emotion, it made you feel

emotional.

Usually, kind of...kind of positive emotions, not negative emotions. So you could say,

for example, you go to see Titanic, the movie Titanic, a romantic movie. And you say

"Oh, I was moved by that story." All right, it means it made you feel very emotional.

Maybe you cried and it was so, you know, powerful, it was a very emotional story. So

you say "I was moved by the story. The story made me feel emotional," strong

emotions.

So in this quote it says "We are moved by people caring for one another." So when

we see two people who care a lot for each other, they love each other a lot, we are

moved. It means we feel strong emotion also, just seeing them. Just seeing two

people who are very kind to each other, who love each other a lot, if we just see them

we also feel some kind of strong emotion, right? We are moved by them, they make

us feel strong emotion also.

Alright, our next word is implication, implication. And the sentence said "There are

also medical implications to whether we think of others or only of ourselves." There

are medical implications. And implication is a consequence or a result, a result of
