Quotable Sunday - There's No Place Like Home

It's great to be home! Sure, I'm sporting a lovely sinus infection and my head feels like it's going to explode, but at least I'm home. Things are of course a little discombobulated and the house is a mess, but I'm home. So guess what quotes I've chosen for this week? Give up? Quotes on Home of course! And this week I'll actually get to visit the fellow players in this thing we call Quotable Sunday - thanks to the inimitable Toni! I've missed being able to stalk visit all my bloggy friends, and am working my way slowly around the blogosphere to get caught up. I've resigned myself to the fact that I'll never truly be caught up, but hey, at least I'm having fun! ;) Enjoy the quotes!

"Home ought to be our clearinghouse, the place from which we go forth lessoned and disciplined, and ready for life."
Kathleen Norris

"There's no place like home."
Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz

"A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it."
George Moore

"The most important work you and I will ever do will be within the wall of our own homes."
Harold B. Lee

"The more one does and sees and feels, the more one is able to do, and the more genuine may be one’s appreciation of fundamental things like home, and love, and understanding companionship."
Amelia Earhart

"Home, the spot of earth supremely blest, A dearer, sweeter spot than all the rest."
Robert Montgomery

"Be grateful for the home you have, knowing that at this moment, all you have is all you need."
Sarah Ban Breathnach

"Home is home, be it ever so humble."

It wouldn't be a "home" post without Dorothy's quote in there. I've never appreciated my house so much as when I go on vacation...

There is nothing like the feeling of coming home, that's for sure!

I do hope your sinus infection leaves ASAP and that the house mysteriously gets picked up by a princess and a hovering hubby.

What's really nice about home is that it's where ever you make. It's what's inside that makes it a home and makes it worth coming back to.
