home

When a writer knows home in his heart, his heart must remain subtly apart from it. He must always be a stranger to the place he loves, and its people.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
His claim to his home is deep, but there are too many ghosts. He must absorb without being absorbed.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When he understands, as few others do, something of his home that is funny, or sad, or tragic, or cruel, or beautiful, or true, he knows he must do so as a stranger.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A novelist is, like all mortals, more fully at home on the surface of the present than in the ooze of the past.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We live in an age when pizza gets to your home before the police.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Men of age object too much, consult too long, adventure too little, repent too soon, and seldom drive business home to the full period, but content themselves with a mediocrity of success.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You leave home to seek your fortune and, when you get it, you go home and share it with your family.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For the perfect idler, for the passionate observer it becomes an immense source of enjoyment to establish his dwelling in the throng, in the ebb and flow, the bustle, the fleeting and the infinite. To be away from home and yet to feel at home anywhere; to see the world, to be at the very center of the world, and yet to be unseen of the world, such are some of the minor pleasures of those independent, intense and impartial spirits, who do not lend themselves easily to linguistic definitions. The observer is a prince enjoying his incognito wherever he goes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Should we have stayed at home and thought of here? Where should we be today? Is it right to be watching strangers in a play in this strangest of theatres?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I think when the full horror of being fifty hits you, you should stay home and have a good cry.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Wilson adventured for the whole of the human race. Not as a servant, but as a champion. So pure was this motive, so unfrocked with anything that his worst enemies could find, except the mildest and most excusable, a personal vanity, practically the minimum to be human, that in a sense his adventure is that of humanity itself. In Wilson, the whole of mankind breaks camp, sets out from home and wrestles with the universe and its gods.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our attitude toward our own culture has recently been characterized by two qualities, braggadocio and petulance. Braggadocio -- empty boasting of American power, American virtue, American know-how -- has dominated our foreign relations now for some decades. Here at home -- within the family, so to speak -- our attitude to our culture expresses a superficially different spirit, the spirit of petulance. Never before, perhaps, has a culture been so fragmented into groups, each full of its own virtue, each annoyed and irritated at the others.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Be grateful for the home you have, knowing that at this moment, all you have is all you need.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It will be a pity if women in the more conventional mould are to be phased out, for there will never be anyone to go home to.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No one is worthy of a good home here or in heaven that is not willing to be in peril for a good cause.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Arguments are like fire-arms which a man may keep at home but should not carry about with him.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
O Star-eyed Science! hast thou wandered there, to waft us home the message of despair?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Words today are like the shells and rope of seaweed which a child brings home glistening from the beach and which in an hour have lost their luster.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Going home must be like going to render an account.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Simplicity is a pleasant thing in children, or at any age, but it is not necessarily admirable, nor is affectation altogether a thing of evil. To be normal, to be at home in the world, with a prospect of power, usefulness, or success, the person must have that imaginative insight into other minds that underlies tact and savoir-faire, morality and beneficence. This insight involves sophistication, some understanding and sharing of the clandestine impulses of human nature. A simplicity that is merely the lack of this insight indicates a sort of defect.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I never married because there was no need. I have three pets at home which answer the same purpose as a husband. I have a dog which growls every morning, a parrot which swears all afternoon and a cat that comes home late at night.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Those who have high thoughts are ever striving; they are not happy to remain in the same place. Like swans that leave their lake and rise into the air, they leave their home and fly for a higher home.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Many a man who thinks to found a home discovers that he has merely opened a tavern for his friends.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our instructed vagrancy, which has hardly time to linger by the hedgerows, but runs away early to the tropics, and is at home with palms and banyans --which is nourished on books of travel, and stretches the theatre of its imagination to the Zambesi.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I use nothing but the best ingredients. My cookies are always baked fresh. I price cookies so that you cannot make them at home for any less. And I still give cookies away.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Construed as turf, home just seems a provisional claim, a designation you make upon a place, not one it makes on you. A certain set of buildings, a glimpsed, smudged window-view across a schoolyard, a musty aroma sniffed behind a garage when you were a child, all of which come crowding in upon your latter-day senses -- those are pungent things and vivid, even consoling. But to me they are also inert and nostalgic and unlikely to connect you to the real, to that essence art can sometimes achieve, which is permanence.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is better for a woman to compete impersonally in society, as men do, than to compete for dominance in her own home with her husband, compete with her neighbors for empty status, and so smother her son that he cannot compete at all.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
They cannot scare me with their empty spaces between stars -- on stars where no human race is. I have it in me so much nearer home to scare myself with my own desert places.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The mother as a social servant instead of a home servant will not lack in true mother duty. From her work, loved and honored though it is, she will return to her home life, the child life, with an eager, ceaseless pleasure, cleansed of all the fret and fraction and weariness that so mar it now.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Why should people pay good money to go out and see bad films when they can stay home and see bad television for nothing?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There has come into existence, chiefly in America, a breed of men who claim to be feminists. They imagine that they have understood what women want and that they are capable of giving it to them. They help with the dishes at home and make their own coffee in the office, basking the while in the refulgent consciousness of virtue. Such men are apt to think of the true male feminists as utterly chauvinistic.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One of the best things to come out of the home computer revolution could be the general and widespread understanding of how severely limited logic really is.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One never reaches home, but wherever friendly paths intersect the whole world looks like home for a time.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Television has brought back murder into the home -- where it belongs.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Security is the priceless product of freedom. Only the strong can be secure, and only in freedom can men produce those material resources which can secure them from want at home and against aggression from abroad.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have joined my heart to thee: all that exists are thou. O Lord, beloved of my heart, thou art the home of all; where indeed is the heart in which thou dost not dwell?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have passed at home in the bosom of my family.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I gleaned jests at home from obsolete farces.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In traveling, a man must carry knowledge with him, if he would bring home knowledge.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As the Spanish proverb says, He who would bring home the wealth of the Indies, must carry the wealth of the Indies with him. So it is in travelling; a man must carry knowledge with him, if he would bring home knowledge.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Commerce is one of the daughters of Fortune, inconsistent and deceitful as her mother. she chooses her residence where she is least expected, and shifts her home when in appearance she seems firmly settled.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The examples of vice at home corrupt us more quickly and easily than others, since they steal into our minds under the highest authority.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The proliferation of support groups suggests to me that too many Americans are growing up in homes that do not contain a grandmother. A home without a grandmother is like an egg without salt and Helpists know it. They have jumped into the void left by the disappearance of morbid old ladies from the bosom of the American family.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The worst thing about work in the house or home is that whatever you do is destroyed, laid waste or eaten within twenty four hours.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The war is dreadful. It is the business of the artist to follow it home to the heart of the individual fighters -- not to talk in armies and nations and numbers -- but to track it home.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If we really think that home is elsewhere and that this life is a wandering to find home, why should we not look forward to the arrival?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I feel most at home in the United States, not because it is intrinsically a more interesting country, but because no one really belongs there any more than I do. We are all there together in its wholly excellent vacuum.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One thought driven home is better than three left on base.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
By profession I am a soldier and take pride in that fact. But I am prouder -- infinitely prouder -- to be a father. A soldier destroys in order to build; the father only builds, never destroys. The one has the potentiality of death; the other embodies creation and life. And while the hordes of death are mighty, the battalions of life are mightier still. It is my hope that my son, when I am gone, will remember me not from the battle field but in the home repeating with him our simple daily prayer, Our Father Who Art in Heaven.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What power can poverty have over a home where loving hearts are beating with a consciousness of untold riches of the head and heart?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You hit home runs not by chance but by preparation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
O my Brothers! love your Country. Our Country is our home, the home which God has given us, placing therein a numerous family which we love and are loved by, and with which we have a more intimate and quicker communion of feeling and thought than with others; a family which by its concentration upon a given spot, and by the homogeneous nature of its elements, is destined for a special kind of activity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is a curious emotion, this certain homesickness I have in mind. With Americans, it is a national trait, as native to us as the roller-coaster or the jukebox. It is no simple longing for the home town or country of our birth. The emotion is Janus-faced: we are torn between a nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange. As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is only too clear that man is not at home in this universe, and yet he is not good enough to deserve a better.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The ordinary acts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace of the world.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When I learn something new-and it happens every day-I feel a little more at home in this universe, a little more comfortable in the nest.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
