To Adam Paradise was home. To the good among his descendants home is paradise.
      - Augustus William Hare

The Cottage Homes of England!
  By thousands on her plains,
    They are smiling o'er the silvery brooks,
      And round the hamlet fanes;
        Through glowing orchards forth they peep,
          Each from its nook of leaves;
            And fearless there the lowly sleep,
              As the ;birds beneath their eaves.
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans

The stately Homes of England,
  How beautiful they stand!
    Amidst their tall ancestral trees,
      O'er all the pleasant land.
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans, Homes of England

My house, my house, though thou art small, thou art to me the Escuriall.
      - George Herbert, Jacula Prudentum

A man who in the struggles of life has no home to retire to, in fact or in memory, is without life's best rewards and life's best defences.
      - Josiah Gilbert Holland (used pseudonym Timothy Titcomb)

Communion is the law of growth, and homes only thrive when they sustain relations with each other.
      - Josiah Gilbert Holland (used pseudonym Timothy Titcomb)

Home, in one form or another, is the great object of life.
      - Josiah Gilbert Holland (used pseudonym Timothy Titcomb)

In the homes of America are born the children of America; and from them go out into American life, American men and women. They go out with the stamp of these homes upon them; and only as these homes are what they should be, will they be what they should be.
      - Josiah Gilbert Holland (used pseudonym Timothy Titcomb)

No genuine observer can decide otherwise than that the homes of a nation are the bulwarks of personal and national safety and thrift.
      - Josiah Gilbert Holland (used pseudonym Timothy Titcomb)

The pleasant converse of the fireside, the simple songs of home, the words of encouragement as I bend over my school-tasks, the kiss as I lie down to rest, the patient bearing with the freaks of my restless nature, the gentle counsels mingled with reproofs and approvals, the sympathy that meets and assuages every sorrow, and sweetens every little success--all these return to me amid the responsibilities which press upon me now, and I feel as if I had once lived in heaven, and, straying, had lost my way.
      - Josiah Gilbert Holland (used pseudonym Timothy Titcomb)

The sweetest type of heaven is home--nay, heaven is the home for whose acquisition we are to strive the most strongly. Home, in one form and another, is the great object of life. It stands at the end of every day's labor, and beckons us to its bosom; an life would be cheerless and meaningless, did we not discern across the river that divides us from the life beyond, glimpses of the pleasant mansions prepared for us.
      - Josiah Gilbert Holland (used pseudonym Timothy Titcomb)

Far and near friends knew this house; for he whose home it was had much acquaintance in the world.
      - Homer ("Smyrns of Chios")

His native home deep imag'd in his soul.
      - Homer ("Smyrns of Chios"), The Odyssey
         (bk. XIII, l. 38)

Peace and rest at length have come,
  All the day's long toil is past;
    And each heart is whispering, "Home,
      Home at last!"
      - Thomas Hood, Home At Last

Who hath not met with home-made bread,
  A heavy compound of putty and lead--
    And home-made wines that rack the head,
      And home-made liquors and waters?
        Home-made pop that will not foam,
          And home-made dishes hat drive one from home--
            . . . .
              Home-mad by the homely daughters.
      - Thomas Hood, Miss Kilmansegg

The worst feeling in the world is the homesickness that comes over a man occasionally when he is at home.
      - Edgar Watson Howe

Appeles us'd to paint a good housewife upon a snayl; which intimated that she should be as slow from gadding abroad, and when she went she should carry her house upon her back; that is, should make all sure at home.
      - James Howell (Howel), Party of Beasts
         (p. 58)

Home life ceases to be free and beautiful as soon as it is founded on borrowing and debt.
      - Henrik Ibsen

I think some orator commenting upon that fate said that though the winds of heaven might whistle around an Englishman's cottage, the King of England could not.
      - John James Ingalls, in the U.S. Senate

I value this delicious home-feeling as one of the choicest gifts a parent can bestow.
      - Washington Irving

It was the policy of the good old gentleman to make his children feel that home was the happiest place in the world; and I value this delicious home-feeling as one of the choicest gifts a parent can bestow.
      - Washington Irving

The paternal hearth, the rallying-place of the affections.
      - Washington Irving

Any old place I can hang my hat is home sweet home to me.
      - William Jerome, title of a song

To be happy at home is the ultimate result of all ambition; the end to which every enterprise and labor tends, and of which every desire prompts the prosecution.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

A Christian home! What a power it is to the child when he is far away in the cold, tempting world, and voices of sin are filling his ears, and his feet stand on slippery places.
      - Abbott E. Kittredge
