12 Inspiring Quotations About The Concept of 'Home' by Jessica Barrah

Home has become even more important than ever in the last month – a place of safety to the lucky majority who have a home to go to, a workplace, gym, cinema, pub, playground…even if it sometimes can feel like a kind of prison with soft furnishings. Here are some quotations to make you think about your home – both the physical place and the spiritual concept.

1. “Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.”
― Robert Frost

2. “Home is people. Not a place. If you go back there after the people are gone, then all you can see is what is not there any more.”
― Robin Hobb, Fool’s Fate

3. “Perhaps home is not a place but simply an irrevocable condition.”
― James Baldwin, _Giovanni’s Room)

4. “I believe that one can never leave home. I believe that one carries the shadows, the dreams, the fears and the dragons of home under one’s skin, at the extreme corners of one’s eyes and possibly in the gristle of the earlobe.”
― Maya Angelou, Letter to My Daughter

5. “I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul.”
― Jean Cocteau

6. “One never reaches home,’ she said. ’But where paths that have an affinity for each other intersect, the whole world looks like home, for a time.”
― Hermann Hesse, Demian: Die Geschichte von Emil Sinclairs Jugend

7. “Home is a notion that only nations of the homeless fully appreciate and only the uprooted comprehend.”
― Wallace Stegner, Angle of Repose

8. “A home filled with nothing but yourself. It’s heavy, that lightness. It’s crushing, that emptiness.”
― Margaret Atwood, The Ten

9. “Thank you, Mr. Rochester, for your great kindness. I am strangely glad to get back again to you: and wherever you are is my home—my only home.”
― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

10. “Books, for me, are a home. Books don’t make a home—they are one, in the sense that just as you do with a door, you open a book, and you go inside. Inside there is a different kind of time and a different kind of space.”
― Jeanette Winterson, Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?

11. “In life, a person will come and go from many homes. We may leave a house, a town, a room, but that does not mean those places leave us. Once entered, we never entirely depart the homes we make for ourselves in the world. They follow us, like shadows, until we come upon them again, waiting for us in the mist.”
― Ari Berk, Death Watch

12. “I don’t care if we have our house, or a cliff ledge, or a cardboard box. Home is wherever we all are, together,”
― James Patterson
