God does not... give people positions or jobs or... good conditions such as they desire; they must do that for themselves.. God does not build cities nor towns nor nations, nor homes, nor factories; men and people do that and all those who want must work for themselves and pray to God to give them strength to do it.
Marcus Garvey

It is difficult for me to imagine what “personal liberty” is enjoyed by an unemployed hungry person. True freedom can only be where there is no exploitation and oppression of one person by another; where there is not unemployment, and where a person is not living in fear of losing his job, his home and his bread. Only in such a society personal and any other freedom can exist for real and not on paper.
Joseph Stalin

This is what life is about. It is being sent on a trip by a loving God, who is waiting at home for our return and is eager to watch the slides we took and hear about the friends we made. When we travel with the eyes and ears of the God who sent us, we will see wonderful sights, hear wonderful sounds, meet wonderful people ... and be happy to return home.
Henri Nouwen

We cannot live in a world that is not our own, in a world that is interpreted for us by others. An interpreted world is not a home. Part of the terror is to take back our own listening, to use our own voice, to see our own light.
Hildegard of Bingen

The reason why we find ourselves in a position of impotency is not because the enemy has sent men to invade our shores, but rather because of the traitorous actions of those who have had all the benefits that the wealthiest nation on earth has had to offer - the finest homes, the finest college educations, and the finest jobs in Government we can give.
Joseph McCarthy

Trump says he wants to run for president. Why not? It wouldn't be the first time he pushed a black family out of their home.
Snoop Dogg

Trump expresses his desire to become president. Why not? It wouldn't be the first time he has displaced an African American family from their residence.
What did you expect? 'Welcome, sonny?' 'Make yourself at home?' 'Marry my daughter?' You've got to remember that these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know . . . morons.
Gene Wilder

Positive health requires a knowledge of man's primary constitution and of the powers of various foods, both those natural to them and those resulting from human skill. But eating alone is not enough for health. There must also be exercise, of which the effects must likewise be known. The combination of these two things makes regimen, when proper attention is given to the season of the year, the changes of the wind, the age of the individual, and the situation of his home. If there is any deficiency in food or exercise, the body will fall sick.

Peace at home is peace in the country. Peace in the country is peace in the world.
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk

'Domestic tranquillity is national repose. National repose is global harmony.'
The fact that our heart yearns for something Earth can't supply is proof that Heaven must be our home.
C. S. Lewis

Our soul's longing for something beyond this world shows that our ultimate destination must be the hereafter.
This soldier,
I realized,
must have had friends at home and in his regiment;
yet he lay there deserted by all except his dog.
I looked on,
at battles which decided the future of nations.
I had given orders which brought death to thousands.
Yet here I was stirred,
profoundly stirred,
stirred to tears.
And by what? By the grief of one dog.
Napoleon Bonaparte,
on finding a dog beside the body of his dead master,
licking his face and howling,
on a moonlit field after a battle.
Napoleon was haunted by this scene until his own death.
Napoleon Bonaparte

I don’t smoke, I don’t drink, I don’t use drugs. That may be boring for some people, but that’s just me. That’s how I live my life. That stuff never appealed to me and I never understood getting so messed up that you can’t even walk home or remember the previous night. I choose to live my life without it.
CM Punk

I never learned hate at home, or shame. I had to go to school for that.
Dick Gregory

I never received instruction in contempt or humiliation at home; I had to be educated by my peers for that.
I had crossed de line of which I had so long been dreaming. I was free; but dere was no one to welcome me to de land of freedom, I was a stranger in a strange land, and my home after all was down in de old cabin quarter, wid de ole folks, and my brudders and sisters. But to dis solemn resolution I came; I was free, and dey should be free also; I would make a home for dem in de North, and de Lord helping me, I would bring dem all dere.
Harriet Tubman

It is up to us to take care of this planet, it is our only home. To betray nature is to betray us. To save nature is to save us. Because whatever you're fighting for, racism or poverty. Feminism, gay rights or any type of equality. It won't matter in the least. Because if we don't all work together to save the environment, we will be equally extinct.
Prince Ea

The female doesn't want a rich man or a handsome man or even a poet, she wants a man who understands her eyes if she gets sad, and points to his chest and say : 'Here is your home country.'
Nizar Qabbani

The female does not seek wealth, looks, or even lyrical mastery; she desires a person who comprehends her sorrow and provides her with a sense of security by gesturing to his heart and proclaiming: 'This is where you belong.'
A house is a machine for living in.
Le Corbusier

A dwelling is an apparatus for habitation.
The lesson this teaches and which every Afro-American should ponder well, is that a Winchester rifle should have a place of honor in every black home, and it should be used for that protection which the law refuses to give. When the white man who is always the aggressor knows he runs as great a risk of biting the dust every time his Afro-American victim does, he will have greater respect for Afro-American life. The more the Afro-American yields and cringes and begs, the more he has to do so, the more he is insulted, outraged and lynched.
Ida B. Wells

There are many times in my life, when I could've thrown in the towel. Many times in my life when I was on the floor. And when you're on the floor, never allow anybody to pick you up. It doesn't matter how long you stay there, make sure you pick yourself up and dust yourself down. Whatever happens, whether you go home today or you don't go home today, that's irrelevant. What's relevant, is you take the knowledge from the experience and you grow as a person.
Marco Pierre White

I'm the most comfortable when I'm at home resting doing nothing.I feel the most myself when I'm with music.

I am most content when I'm in the domestic environment relaxing and doing nothing. Music brings me to my true self.
In a Society becoming steadily more privatized with private homes, cars, computers, offices and shopping centers, the public component of our lives is disappearing. It is more and more important to make the cities inviting, so we can meet our fellow citizens face to face and experience directly through our senses. Public life in good quality public spaces is an important part of a democratic life and a full life.
Jan Gehl

To be honest I am not lookin to be romantic, already got someone at home
Kevin Gates

To be frank, I am not seeking to be sentimental, already have someone at home.
The consolidation of the states into one vast empire, sure to be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be the certain precursor of ruin which has overwhelmed all that preceded it.
Robert E. Lee

The amalgamation of the states into a single expansive realm, certain to be belligerent abroad and tyrannical within its borders, will be the inescapable precursor of destruction that has befallen all that came before it.
You cannot pray at home, like you can at church, where there is a great multitude; where exclamations are cried out to God as from one great heart, and where there is something more: the unions of minds, the accord of souls, the bond of charity, the prayers of priests.
Saint John Chrysostom

A house should not be built so close to another that a chicken from one can lay an egg in the neighbor's yard, nor so far away that a child cannot shout to the yard of his neighbor.
Julius Nyerere

A dwelling should not be erected so near to another that a hen from one can deposit an egg in the neighbor's yard, nor so distant that a youngster cannot holler to the yard of his neighbor.
And you tried to change, didn't you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake... You can't make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave. You are terrifying, and strange, and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love.
Warsan Shire

It gladdens me to know that Baldr’s father [Odin] makes ready the benches for a banquet. Soon we shall be drinking ale from the curved horns. The champion who comes into Odin’s dwelling [Valhalla] does not lament his death. I shall not enter his hall with words of fear upon my lips. The Æsir will welcome me. Death comes without lamenting… Eager am I to depart. The Dísir summon me home, those whom Odin sends for me [Valkyries] from the halls of the Lord of Hosts. Gladly shall I drink ale in the high-seat with the Æsir. The days of my life are ended. I laugh as I die.
Ragnar Lodbrok

The sea will grant each man new hope, and sleep will bring dreams of home.
Larry Ferguson

The ocean shall afford every person newfound optimism, and slumber will bestow visions of one's abode.
We are of such value to God that He came to live among us... and to guide us home. He will go to any length to seek us, even to being lifted high upon the cross to draw us back to Himself. We can only respond by loving God for His love.
St. Catherine of Siena

I like writing books. I'd rather be at home with my wife. I can write, take a break, come out, have a glass of tea, give my wife a kiss, and go back in and write some more. It's not so bad. I am really lucky.
Gene Wilder

The child that never learns to obey his parents in the home will not obey God or man out of the home.
Susanna Wesley

The youngster who never acquires the habit of heeding his parents in the home will not heed God or others away from it.
The master maker of the human body did not create you and then run off and leave you masterless. He stayed on the job as innate, as the fellow within, as nerve transmission controlling every function of life, as spirit from above-down, inside-out, expressing, creating, exploring, directing you in every field and phase of experience so that your home is truly the world and the world is your home.
B. J. Palmer

It's time for the bully pulpit of the White House to bring the gangstas in, put them around the table and let them know that if they don't come up with loan modifications and keep people in their homes that they've worked so hard for, we're gonna tax them out of business.
Maxine Waters

A man who calls his kinsmen to a feast does not do so to save them from starving. They all have food in their own homes. When we gather together in the moonlit village ground it is not because of the moon. Every man can see it in his own compound. We come together because it is good for kinsmen to do so.
Chinua Achebe

See, when you drive home today, you've got a big windshield on the front of your car. And you've got a little bitty rearview mirror. And the reason the windshield is so large and the rearview mirror is so small is because what's happened in your past is not near as important as what's in your future.
Joel Osteen

We should learn from the snail: it has devised a home that is both exquisite and functional.
Frank Lloyd Wright

We should gain insight from the snail: it has created a residence that is both delightful and utilitarian.
Every mouth you’ve ever kissed was just practice. All the bodies you’ve ever undressed and ploughed in to were preparing you for me. I don’t mind tasting them in the memory of your mouth. Was it a long journey? Did it take you long to find me? You’re here now, welcome home.
Warsan Shire

You've seen the world, and all you've seen is nothing; and everything, as well, that you have said and heard is nothing. You've sprinted everywhere between here and the horizon; it is nothing. And all the possessions you've treasured up at home are nothing.
Omar Khayyam

It could be, it might be... It is, A home run!
Harry Caray

'It could be, it might be... It is, A grand slam!'
Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity.
John Muir

Countless fatigued, frazzled, over-cultured individuals are discovering that a return to nature is akin to coming home; that the untamed is an essential.
We suffer with those who have disappeared, those who have had to flee their homes, and those who have been tortured.
Oscar Romero

We empathize with those who have gone missing, those who have been forced to relocate, and those who have endured torment.
Nothing will turn a man's home into a castle more quickly and effectively than a dachshund.
Queen Victoria

No pet will transform a dwelling into a fortress more expeditiously and thoroughly than a dachshund.
The home should be the treasure chest of living.
Le Corbusier

The dwelling should be the repository of life.
A Winchester rifle should have a place of honor in every black home.
Ida B. Wells

A Winchester firearm should be proudly displayed in every African American family's home.
My dad's been having a hard time lately. Keeps on losing his keys. Can't hang on to a set of keys to save his life. And he has tried everything too: little hook next to the door, little bowl next to his bed, keychain makes a noise when you whistle. Nothing worked. So finally, this year for his birthday, the whole family chipped in - and we put him in a home.
Anthony Jeselnik

We cannot stay home all our lives, we must present ourselves to the world and we must look upon it as an adventure.
Beatrix Potter

We cannot remain sequestered forever, we must venture out into the world and view it as a thrilling journey.
Become familiar with your home, but know also about your neighbors. The young man who never went anywhere thinks his mother is the greatest cook.
Chinua Achebe

You must realise now, more clearly than ever, that God is calling you to serve Him in and from the ordinary, secular and civil activities of human life. He waits for us everyday, in the laboratory, in the operating theatre, in the army barracks, in the university chair, in the factory, in the workshop, in the fileds, in the home and in all the immense panorama of work.
Josemaria Escriva

Most of the world is like a mental hospital. Some persons are sick with jealousy, others with anger, hatred, passion. They are victims of their habits and emotions. But you can make your home a place of peace.
Paramahansa Yogananda
