I never heard my father's or mother's voice once raised in any question with each other; nor saw any angry or even slightly hurt or offended glance in the eyes of either. I never heard a servant scolded, nor even suddenly, passionately, or in any severe manner, blamed; and I never saw a moment's trouble or disorder in any household matter.
      - John Ruskin

The cock is at his best on his own dunghill.
  [Lat., Gallus in sterquilinio suo plurimum potest.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca),
        De Morte Claudii

Home-keeping youth have ever homely wits.
      - William Shakespeare

The air of paradise did fan the house, and angels officed all.
      - William Shakespeare

And I'll still stay, to have thee still forget,
  Forgetting any other home but this.
      - William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
         (Romeo at II, ii)

That is my home of love: if I have ranged,
  Like him that travels I return again,
    Just to the time, not with the time exchanged.
      - William Shakespeare, Sonnet CIX

Cease to persuade, my loving Proteus;
  Home-keeping youth have ever homely wits.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Two Gentlemen of Verona
         (Valentine at I, i)

Please you, I'll tell you as we pass along,
  That you will wonder what hath fortuned.
    Come, Proteus, 'tis your penance but to hear
      The story of your loves discovered;
        That done, our day of marriage shall be yours:
          One feast, one house, one mutual happiness.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Two Gentlemen of Verona
         (Valentine at V, iv)

Home life as we understand it is no more natural to us than a cage is natural to a cockatoo.
      - George Bernard Shaw, Getting Married
         (preface, "Hearth and Home")

Home is the girl's prison and the woman's workhouse.

Home makes the man.
      - Samuel Smiles

There is a magic in that little word,--it is a mystic circle that surrounds comforts and virtues never known beyond its hallowed limits.
      - Robert Southey

Home is the grandest of all institutions.
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon

When home is ruled according to God's Word, angels might be asked to stay a night with us, and they would not find themselves out of their element.
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon

My house is to me as my castle, since the law has not the art to destroy it.
      - Sir William (Guilliaulme) Staunforde (Staunford or Stanford),
        Plees del Coron (14 B)

Home is the resort
  Of live, of joy, of peace, and plenty; where
    Supporting and supported, polished friends
      And dear relations mingle into bliss.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons--Autumn (l. 65)

Though home be but homely, yet huswife is taught
  That home hath no fellow to such as have aught.
      - Thomas Tusser,
        Points of Huswifery--Instruction to Huswifery
         (VIII, p. 243)

I read within a poet's book
  A word that starred the page,
    "Stone walls do not a prison make,
      Nor iron bars a cage."
        Yes, that is true, and something more;
          You'll find, where'er you roam,
            That marble floors and gilded walls
              Can never make a home.
                But every house where Love abides
                  And Friendship is a guest,
                    Is surely home, and home, sweet home;
                      For there the heart can rest.
      - Henry Jackson van Dyke (2), Home Song

They dreamt not of a perishable home.
      - William Wordsworth,
        Inside of King's College Chapel, Cambridge

The first sure symptom of a mind in health is rest of heart, and pleasure felt at home.
      - Edward Young

The man who builds, and wants wherewith to pay,
  Provides a home from which to run away.
      - Edward Young, Love of Fame
         (satire I, l. 171)
