HOME Quotes


I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself.
-- Maya Angelou

“If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. Don't be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning 'Good morning' at total strangers.”
-- Maya Angelou

 

The simplest questions are the most profound. Where were you born? Where is your home? Where are you going? What are you doing? Think about these once in a while and watch your answers change. ~Richard Bach

 

* There is nothing more important than a good, safe, secure home.
-- Rosalynn Carter

* “If you believe in a security strategy -- a strategy of more friends and fewer enemies, a strategy of greater cooperation and a strategy of keeping America better at home as we grow more diverse -- we have to build the minds and hearts to build this kind of world.”
~ Bill Clinton

 

When the perfect order prevails, the world is like a home shared by all. Leaders are capable and virtuous. Everyone loves and respects their own parents and children as well as the parents and children of others. The old are cared for, adults have jobs, children are nourished and educated. There is a means of support for all those who are disabled or find themselves alone in the world. Everyone has an appropriate role to play in the family and society. Devotion to public duty leaves no place for idleness. Scheming for ill gain is unknown. Sharing displaces selfishness and materialism.
-- Confucius

"We go to sanctuaries to remember the things we hold most dear, the things we cherish and love. And then--the great challenge--we return home seeking to enact this wisdom as best we can in our daily lives."
~ William Cronon

"We have a responsibility to look after our planet. It is our only home."
-- The Dalai Lama

I pledge ... TO EAT wholesome food produced locally by organic methods, and to minimize my consumption of food which I know to have involved cruelty to animals or other environmental harm.
~ Guy Dauncey

* I PLEDGE to live, work and act in a loving, respectful way towards this Earth that I call home, and towards all who live upon it, every insect, animal, fish, bird, plant, human and tree....
~ Guy Dauncey

 

The wise man belongs to all countries, for the home of a great soul is the whole world
-- Democritus

No success in public life can compensate for failure in the home.
-- Benjamin Disraeli

 

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

"Charity begins at home, but should not end there."
-- Thomas Fuller (1732)

 

And it is to these rights -- the right of law and order, the right of life, the right of liberty, the right of a job, the right of a home in a decent neighborhood, and the right to an education -- it is to these rights that I pledge my life and whatever capacity and ability I have.
-- Hubert Humphrey

* The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have passed at home in the bosom of my family. ~Thomas Jefferson

* In countries where people have to flee their homes because of persecution and violence, political solutions must be found, peace and tolerance restored, so that refugees can return home. In my experience, going home is the deepest wish of most refugees.
~ Angelina Jolie

We must not be forced to explore the universe in search of a new home because we have made the Earth inhospitable, even uninhabitable. For if we do not solve the environmental and related social problems that beset us on Earth - pollution, toxic contamination, resource depletion, prejudice, poverty, hunger - those problems will surely accompany us to other worlds.
~ Donald G. Kaufman and Cecilia M. Franz

...Come home to the affirmation that we have a dream.
Come home to the conviction that we can move our country forward.
Come home to the belief that we can seek a newer world.
And let us be joyful in the homecoming...

-- George McGovern

“Having someone wonder where you are when you don’t come home at night is a very old human need.”
-- Margaret Mead

The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest.
Thomas More

Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountain is going home; that wildness is necessity; that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.
~ John Muir

* We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home.
-- Edward R. Murrow

* I wish to call on you to join hands in the building of a world in which less people will be forced to flee, and in which refugees are protected until they can safely return home one day.
-- Sadako Ogata, UN High Commissioner for Refugees, 1990-2000

 

'My home is a place of warmth and love. No one should be denied a home.'
-- Gail Porter

 

* "Teach love, generosity, good manners and some of that will drift from the classroom to the home and who knows, the children will be educating the parents. Lets face it; the children who do that are the hope of tomorrow."
-- Sir Roger Moore

Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home - so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world ... Such are the places where every man, woman and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere.
-- Eleanor Roosevelt

* "Peace, like charity, begins at home."
-- Franklin D. Roosevelt

* "Good parents give their children Roots and Wings. Roots to know where home is, wings to fly away and exercise what's been taught them."
-- Jonas Salk

We are all longing to go home to some place we have never been - a place half-remembered and half-envisioned we can only catch glimpses of from time to time. Community. Somewhere, there are people to whom we can speak with passion without having the words catch in our throats. Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power. Community means strength that joins our strength to do the work that needs to be done. Arms to hold us when we falter. A circle of healing. A circle of friends. Someplace where we can be free.
-- Starhawk

We don't need bombs and guns to destroy, to bring peace - just get together, love one another, bring that peace, that joy, that strength of presence of each other in the home. And we will be able to overcome all the evil that is in the world.
-- Mother Teresa

* We want for our children, as we want for ourselves, lives at home, at work and at play to be lives of joy and peace.
-- Betty Williams

* The human heart is the first home of democracy. It is where we embrace our questions: Can we be equitable? Can we be generous? Can we listen with our whole beings, not just our minds, and offer our attention rather than our opinion? And do we have enough resolve in our hearts to act courageously, relentlessly, without giving up, trusting our fellow citizens to join us in our determined pursuit—a living democracy?
~ Terry Tempest Williams
