  • heart a hard-hearted, unfeeling person.We would use this term, especially for

  • someone lacking emotion in situations where we would expect them to show their

  • emotions or to show a lot of emotions. In this case, we might call or say that

  • somebody is a cold fish. Okay. There is a second meaning here too. It could all also

  • have a second meaning as an unresponsive, unemotional, sexual partner. Okay. So let's

  • let's continue. The origin of this noun phrase comes from a Shakespeare play, "The

  • Winter's Tale. " Here is the exact quote from the play. "It was thought she was a
