Here is my first principle of foreign policy: good government at home

William Ewart Gladstone

Dare I say that when he is at home I wish he was overseas, and still more profoundly when he is overseas I wish he was at home?

Geoffrey Fisher

Am I going home to idleness? No, no. My feet and hands may be still, not so the mind--that has its aspirations yet, and it will work, for it has a law unto itself. Idleness is one thing, doing is another.

Lew Wallace

That was my aspiration, so I was there in a seminary with just boys who were studying to be priests. Pretty rigorous schooling; we never got home, we stayed there all year.

Peter Jurasik

The influx of women into paid work and her increased power raise a woman's aspirations and hopes for equal treatment at home. Her lower wage and status at work and the threat of divorce reduce what she presses for and actually expects.

Arlie Hochschild

The appreciative smile, the chuckle, the soundless mirth, so important to the success of comedy, cannot be understood unless one sits among the audience and feels the warmth created by the quality of laughter that the audience takes home with it.

James Thurber

Of all the home remedies, a good wife is best.

Kin Hubbard

I much prefer working with kids whose life could be completely upended by a reading of a book over a weekend. You give them a book to read - they go home and come back a changed person. And that is so much more interesting and exciting.

Russell Banks†

Middle age is when you are sitting at home on a Saturday night and the telephone rings and you hope it is not for you.

Ogden Nash

Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity..."

John Muir

Too rarely do most of us focus on our real inner beauty and our inner strengths. Do you recall watching "boy meets girl" movies? As the boy and the girl struggled through thick and thin, you hoped and prayed the whole time that everything would work out. He went to war, she left home, he came back, she was gone, he found her, her brother told him to get lost, she told him to get lost, and all the time you hoped that they would live happily ever after.

Andrew Matthews

Nature is not a place to visit, it is home.

Gary Snyder

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

John Muir

Philosophy is really nostalgia, the desire to be at home.

Novalis

Swift or smooth, broad as the Hudson or narrow enough to scrape your gunwales, every river is a world of its own, unique in pattern and personality. Each mile on a river will take you further from home than a hundred miles on a road

Paul Brooks

The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth ... the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need -- if only we had the eyes to see

Edward Abbey†

I related to his disillusionment. Thinking that he was going for this big dream. Then he kind of saw through it all at one point and went back home. Then he started a bender, which I can relate to of course.

Woody Harrelson

A good job is more than just a paycheck. A good job fosters independence and discipline, and contributes to the health of the community. A good job is a means to provide for the health and welfare of your family, to own a home, and save for retirement.

James H. Douglas

It's about food. Itís about your home. Itís about your life. The government is worried about all of the above. All Iím saying is you should be worried theyíre worried. Hereís why: Theyíre telling you that you canít take care of yourself. You canít be trusted with what you put in your mouth or what you sign on the mortgage dotted line. So theyíll tell you what to put in your mouth and theyíll save you from what you signed on that dotted line. Does anyone see a trend here? Personal responsibility has now become government responsibility

Neil Cavuto

Percy Bysshe Shelley

Hospitality is making your guests feel at home, even if you wish they were.

Unknown

When they are not at war they do a little hunting, but spend most of their time in idleness, sleeping and eating. The strongest and most warlike do nothing. They vegetate, while the care of hearth and home and fields is left to the women, the old and the weak. Strange inconsistency of temperament, which makes the same men lovers of sloth and haters of tranquility.

Tacitus

Television enables you to be entertained in your home by people you wouldn't have in your home.

David Frost

No one is worthy of a good home here or in heaven that is not willing to be in peril for a good cause.
