Oh, Give Me A Home

“Owning your own home is America’s unique recipe for avoiding revolution and promoting pseudo-equality at the same time. To keep citizens puttering in their yards instead of sputtering on the barricades, the government has gladly deprived itself of billions in tax revenues by letting home owners deduct mortgage interest payments.”
~ Florence King

“The ache for home lives in all of us. The safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.”
~ Maya Angelou

“There is something permanent, and something extremely profound, in owning a home.”
~ Kenny Guinn

“A mind, like a home, is furnished by its owner, so if one’s life is cold and bare he can blame none but himself.”
~ Louis L’Amour

“A good home must be made, not bought.”
~ Joyce Maynard

“A man builds a fine house; and now he has a master, and a task for life; he is to furnish, watch, show it, and keep it in repair, the rest of his days.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The home is the center and circumference, the start and the finish, of most of our lives.”
~ Charlotte Perkins Gilman

“Home is where the heart is.”
~ Pliny the Elder

“The most important work you and I will ever do will be within the walls of our own homes.”
~ Harold B. Lee

Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam,
Where the deer and the antelope play,
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day.
