What does "It is always the heart that sees, before the head can see."- Thomas Carlyle mean?

I get too confused with this quote and what does it trying to convey, I somehow find it very similar to H. Jackson Brown's "Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye", but I am not confident if I am thinking the right answer to this.

I am working on John Adair's Art of Creative Thinking, and this scrumptiously hit my attention.

What are your thoughts on this? please help, will mean a lot to me..
