Where we love is home -- home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.

Robert Frost

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

Benjamin Franklin
