Home quotes
Home
A house means a family house, a place specially meant for putting children and men in so as to restrict their waywardness and distract them from the longing for adventure and escape they've had since time began.

- Duras, Marguerite
Television has brought back murder into the home -- where it belongs.

- Hitchcock, Alfred
Under the wide and starry sky,
Dig the grave and let me lie.
Glad did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.
This is the verse you grave for me:
'Here he lies where he longed to be;
Here is the sailor, home from the sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.'

- Stevenson, Robert Louis
A novelist is, like all mortals, more fully at home on the surface of the present than in the ooze of the past.

- Nabokov, Vladimir
I live in my house as I live inside my skin: I know more beautiful, more ample, more sturdy and more picturesque skins: but it would seem to me unnatural to exchange them for mine.

- Levi, Primo
Prepare for death, if here at night you roam, and sign your will before you sup from home.

- Johnson, Samuel
No true work since the world began was ever wasted; no true life since the world began has ever failed. Oh, understand those two perverted word, failure and success and measure them by the eternal, not the earthly, standard. When after thirty obscure, toilsome, unrecorded years in the shop of the village carpenter, one came forth to be pre-eminently the man of sorrows, to wander from city to city in homeless labors, and to expire in lonely agony upon the shameful cross -- was that a failure.

- Farrar, Frederick
Idleness is a constant sin, and labor is a duty. Idleness is the devil's home for temptation and for unprofitable, distracting musings; while labor profit others and ourselves.

- Baxter, Anne
True luck consists not in holding the best of the cards at the table; luckiest is he who knows just when to rise and go home.

- John Hay
Our citizenship in the United States is our national character. Our citizenship in any particular state is only our local distinction. By the latter we are known at home, by the former to the world. Our great title is AMERICANS -- our inferior one varies with the place.

- Paine, Thomas
Farms and in castles, in homes, studies, and cloisters -- where sensible people manage to live relatively lusty and decent lives, as moral as they must be, as free as they may be, and as masterly as they can be. If we only knew it, this elusive arrangement is happiness.

- Erikson, Erik H.
In traveling, a man must carry knowledge with him, if he would bring home knowledge.

- Johnson, Samuel
Only the traveling is good which reveals to me the value of home and enables me to enjoy it better.

- Thoreau, Henry David
A smile is a light in the window of the soul indicating that the heart is at home.

Stay at home in your mind. Don't recite other people's opinions. I hate quotations. Tell me what you know.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
A man's house burns down. The smoking wreckage represents only a ruined home that was dear through years of use and pleasant associations. By and by, as the days and weeks go on, first he misses this, then that, then the other thing. And when he casts about for it he finds that it was in that house. Always it is an essential -- there was but one of its kind. It cannot be replaced. It was in that house. It is irrevocably lost. It will be years before the tale of lost essentials is complete, and not till then can he truly know the magnitude of his disaster.

- Twain, Mark
May your home always be too small to hold all of your friends.

- Irish Blessing
[The television is] an invention that permits you to be entertained in your living room by people you wouldn't have in your home.

- David Frost
By nature man hates change; seldom will he quit his old home till it has actually fallen around his ears.

- Carlyle, Thomas
Kindness goes a long ways lots of times when it ought to stay at home.

- Hubbard, Kin
