15 Home Quotes from Literature

The kitchen, without doubt, was the center of creation, all things revolved about it; it was the pediment that sustained the temple. ~ Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury My own complete happiness, and the home-centred interests which rise up around the man who first finds himself master of his own establishment, were sufficient to absorb all my attention, while Holmes, who loathed every form of society with his whole Bohemian soul, remained in our lodgings in Baker Street, buried among his old books, and alternating from week to week between cocaine and ambition, the drowsiness of the drug, and the fierce energy of his own keen nature. ~ A Scandal in Bohemia by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "We thought that, perhaps," said I, hesitating, "it is right to begin with the obligations of home, sir; and that, perhaps, while those are overlooked and neglected, no other duties can possibly be substituted for them." ~ Bleak House by Charles Dickens "No matter how dreary and gray our homes are, we people of flesh and blood would rather live there than in any other country, be it ever so beautiful. There is no place like home." ~ The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum In love of home, the love of country has its rise. ~ The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens And though home is a name, a word, it is a strong one; stronger than magician ever spoke, or spirit answered to, in strongest conjuration. ~ Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens "There can be no freedom or beauty about a home life that depends on borrowing and debt." ~ A Doll's House by Henrik Ibsen Miss Mills replied, on general principles, that the Cottage of content was better than the Palace of cold splendour, and that where love was, all was. ~ David Copperfield by Charles Dickens "When I speak of home, I speak of the place where -- in default of a better -- those I love are gathered together; and if that place were a gypsy's tent, or a barn, I should call it by the same good name notwithstanding." ~ Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens "I have always said that the great advantage of a hotel is that it's a refuge from home life, sir." ~ You Never Can Tell by George Bernard Shaw
