It takes a lot of living to make a house a home
It doesn’t make any difference how rich you get to be
How much your chairs and tables cost, how great your luxury
It isn’t home to you though it be the palace of a king,
Until somehow your soul is wrapped round everything.
- Paraphrase of Edgar Guest poem, Home

MALI-10069, 00365_17, Sahel, Mali, 1986

Mali

A  home is one of the most sacred of places.
It is a sanctuary into which men flee from the world’s perils and alarms.
It is a resting-place to which at close of day the weary retire to gather new strength for the
battle and toils of tomorrow.
It is the place where love learns its lessons,

where life is schooled into discipline and strength, where character is molded.
- J.R. Miller
