I'm with Caluvox on this one. It has to be mind. It's the mind that creates ALL the emotions, including those we attribute to "heart" -- which is just a big pump that goes thunka-thunka-thunka and, just like "My Grandfather's Clock", it will keep ticking and cuckooing until I turn up my toes.
What is the heart and what is the mind? In truth, both the mind and the heart are outside the physical realm, as we are speaking of heart in the metaphorical sense of ones true spirit of intentions, whereas the mind has been shown to be a separate entity from the brain in many cases, simply related, but not intrinsic to the other. One must ask the question then, what are we the sum of, can we truly still exist without having both? Heart and Mind are intrinsically linked in far too many ways, the Heart says what is right, but the Mind explains how to go about accomplishing what is right, one cannot do it's job without the other. Therefore, we cannot be remembered for just one, for just as Faith without Works is dead in itself. So also is the Heart without the Mind, or vice versa. To be remembered simply for the Heart or the Mind, as separate entities, would be a hollow memory. So I choose to be remembered not as a Heart or a Mind, but as the sum of those things, in the ideals I express, and the actions I take to make those ideals a reality.
Since "the heart" is simply a poetic term for human emotion and sentiment, and these originate in the brain, in the simplest terms there is only the mind. Everything that makes you YOU is contained in your brain.
At Ecclesiastes 7:1 it says, “A name is better than good oil, and the day of death than the day of one’s being born.” We should try to make sure that our heart and mind are aligned toward spiritual things. “A good name is more desirable than great riches, a good reputation than silver and gold.”—Proverbs 22:1

Well, by heart. I will always remember Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr, and even Einstein and Edison better for what I read about their personalities than for their great achievements. And I wouldnt care about them no matter how great achievements they made if it wasnt for what I read that gave me an idea about their personalities.
