To say that someone has the heart of a lion (or is lion-hearted) means that he or she is very brave. Information on phrases can be had from several sources: books like those named on the "Book List" page (link at top of main Discussion Forum page); the Meanings and Origins section of this website; other websites, such as the Word Detective; and sometimes ordinary dictionaries.
