What does ex corde caritas mean

The Latin phrase "Ex Corde Caritas" means "Love from the Heart".

"Ex Corde Caritas" is the motto of George Watson's College.

Latin word "ex" is a prefix meaning “out of,” “from,” and hence “utterly,” “thoroughly,” and sometimes meaning “not” or “without” or indicating a former title, status, etc.

"Corde", from the Latin root "cor, cordis—heart {cour}" means "heart". An apple core is the "heart" of the apple, just as the core of any argument is its essential center, or heart. The core of the Earth, of course, is its (or her) center, the "heart" of the planet.

"Caritas" literally means "charity" which synonymous to loving and kindness.
