Every one of us needs a home. The world needs a home.
There are so many young people who are homeless.
They may have a building to live in, but they are homeless in their hearts.
That is why the most important practice
of our time is to give each person a home.
- Thich Nhat Hanh
Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam,
Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home…
