The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned. Maya Angelou

It’s where you go and feel hugged even if you are alone.  It’s comforting.  Home is where you feel sheltered from the world.  JG

Home holds many memories.  Home is food and sweet tea with kisses from those furry faces.  Home is where the children want to be at bedtime.  Home is a hug goodnight.   JG

Home knows you and accepts you.  Home loves you unconditionally.  JG

Home heals you.  Home sets you free to cry or laugh out loud.  Home knows your deepest fears.  JG

Home is the one place in all this world where hearts are sure of each other.  It is the place of confidence.  It is the place where we tear off that mask of guarded and suspicious coldness which the world forces us to wear in self-defense, and where we pour out the unreserved communications of full and confiding hearts.  It is the spot where expressions of tenderness gush out without any sensation of awkwardness and without any dread of ridicule.
Frederick W. Robertson

Home is where you make plans.  Home is where you realize some dreams were never meant to be true.  Home is where you ask for guidance as a child.  JG

Strength of character may be learned at work, but beauty of character is learned at home. Henry Drummond

Home is where the heart can laugh without shyness.  Home is where the heart’s tears can dry at their own pace. ~ Vernon Baker

Home is a shelter from storms – all sorts of storms. William J. Bennett

Home, the spot of earth supremely blest, A dearer, sweeter spot than all the rest. Robert Montgomery


You need a village, if only for the pleasure of leaving it.  A village means that you are not alone, knowing that in the people, the trees, the earth, there is something that belongs to you, waiting for you when you are not there.
Casare Pavese

I had rather be on my farm than be emperor of the world. George Washington

Home is bacon and tomato sandwiches after playing with the hose.  JG

A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body. Benjamin Franklin
