A house is not a home.
      - Polly Adler, A House Is Not a Home,
        title of the book

The privilege of feeling at home everywhere belongs only to kings, wolves and robbers.
      - Honore de Balzac

Home should be an oratorio of the memory, singing to all our after life melodies and harmonies of old-remembered joy.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.
      - Bible, Isaiah (ch. I, v. 8)

No outward doors of a man's house can in general be broken open to execute any civil process; though in criminal cases the public safety supersedes the private.
      - Sir William Blackstone vol. IV, p. 108 (Stephen's) (1880 ed.)

To know after absence the familiar street and road and village and house is to know again the satisfaction of home.
      - Hal Borland

Unless you move, the place where you are is the place where you will always be.
      - Ashleigh Brilliant

To make a happy fireside clime
  To weans and wife,
    That's the true pathos and sublime
      Of human life.
      - Robert Burns, Epistle to Dr. Blacklock

At length his lonely cot appears in view,
  Beneath the shelter of an aged tree;
    Th' expectant wee-things, toddling, stacher thro'
      To meet their Dad, wi' flichterin noise an' glee.
      - Robert Burns, The Cotter's Saturday Night
         (st. 3)

Stint yourself, as you think good, in other things; but don't scruple freedom in brightening home. Gay furniture and a brilliant garden are a sight day by day, and make life blither.
      - Charles Buxton

I've read in many a novel, that unless they've souls that grovel--
  Folks prefer in fact a hovel to your dreary marble halls.
      - Charles Stuart Calverley, In the Gloaming

My whinstone house my castle is,
  I have my own four walls.
      - Thomas Carlyle, My Own Four Walls

When the hornet hangs in the holly hock,
  And the brown bee drones i' the rose,
    And the west is a red-streaked four-o'clock,
      And summer is near its close--
        It's--Oh, for the gate, and the locust lane;
          And dusk, and dew, and home again!
      - Madison Julius Cawein, In the Lane

Old homes! old hearts! Upon my soul forever
  Their peace and gladness lie like tears and laughter.
      - Madison Julius Cawein, Old Homes

The spirit and tone of your home will have great influence on your children. If it is what it ought to be, it will fasten conviction on their minds, however wicked they may become.
      - Richard Cecil

Every one in his own house and God in all of them.
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra)

Home--the nursery of the Infinite.
      - William Ellery Channing

The domestic relations precede, and in our present existence are worth more than all our other social ties. They give the first throb to the heart, and unseal the deep fountains of its love. Home is the chief school of human virtue. Its responsibilities, joys, sorrows, smiles, tears, hopes, and solicitudes form the chief interest of human life.
      - William Ellery Channing

Home is the seminary of all other institutions.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

There is no happiness in life, there is no misery, like that growing out of the dispositions which consecrate or desecrate a home.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

There's a strange something, which without a brain
  Fools feel, and which e'en wise men can't explain,
    Planted in man, to bind him to that earth,
      In dearest ties, from whence he drew his birth.
      - Charles Churchill

There is no place more delightful than one's own fireside.
  [Lat., Nullus est locus domestica sede jucundior.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        Epistles (IV, 8)

Home is home, though it be never so homely.
      - John Clarke, Paroemiologia (p. 101)

It is a woman, and only a woman,--a woman all by herself, if she likes, and without any man to help her,--who can turn a house into a home.
      - Frances P. Cobbe

The home to everyone is to him his castle and fortress, as well for his defence against injury and violence, as for his repose.
      - Lord Edward Coke
