Home is the nicest word there is.
- Laura Ingalls Wilder
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
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
Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.
- Bashō Matsuo
All journeys eventually end in the same place, home.
- Chris Geiger
Nor need we power or splendor,
wide hall or lordly dome;
the good, the true, the tender-
these form the wealth of home.
- Sarah J. Hale
He is the happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace in his home.
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Home is where one starts from.
- T.S. Eliot
All language is a longing for home.
- Jalaluddin Rumi, 13th-Century Persian poet
My home is my retreat and resting place …
I try to keep this corner as a haven
against the tempest outside,
as I do another corner in my soul.
- Michel de Montaigne
Home is people. Not a place.
If you go back there after the people are gone,
then all you can see is what is not there any more.
- Robin Hobb
…Home is where, when you cross its threshold, you finally feel at peace.
- Dennis Lehane
A home without a cat — and a well-fed, well-petted and properly revered cat —
may be a perfect home, perhaps, but how can it prove title?
- Mark Twain
Home should be an oratorio of the memory,
singing to all our after life melodies and harmonies of
old remembered joy.
– Henry Ward Beecher
