Home is where one starts from.
– T.S. Eliot
The ache for home lives in all of us…

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.

He is the happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace in his home.
– Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Bamiyan Province, Afghanistan
The poorest man may in his cottage bid defiance to all the forces of the Crown.
It may be frail — its roof may shake — the wind may blow through it — the storm may enter — the rain may enter —
but the King of England cannot enter! — all his forces dare not cross the threshold of the ruined tenement.
-William Pitt the Elder
All language is a longing for home.
– Jalaluddin Rumi, 13th-Century Persian poet
Home is any four walls that enclose the right person.
A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body.

Tihamah Plain, Yemen
A man travels the world in search of what he needs and returns home to find it.

There is no doubt that it is around the family and the home that all the greatest virtues,
the most dominating virtues of human society, are created, strengthened and maintained.

Life’s a voyage that’s homeward bound.
– Herman Melville
Omo Valley, Ethiopia
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
