Quotes About Home

What is home? It's the place where you hang your hat, where your heart is, place that is linked to your past, place where you make the most important decisions and through its door you walk into the future. Home can be many things to one person. Deep within ourselves, we all have a deep longing for peaceful and warm home where we can be what we truly are, where we are accepted and respected, where we are taken care of. Home! Quotes and sayings about home will reveal this longing. It is remarkable how this deep need is common to almost all people. I recognize this in almost all the quotes and sayings below.
