A home is not something a person chooses.  It is given.  Born to you.  It cannot
be changed.  Each part is like a body, each bend and crossing is a place on the
body, with heart, with legs.  Each place has a name and a story.  Each place has a
name for something that happened in old time; and in that name and story is a
people's greatness and proof of their favor in creation.
 A home has people.  Without the words of family and friends who know the first
name you were called, know the things you have done, how can you understand
the right way?   
-- Karen Fischer
Home is a place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.  -- Robert Frost
Home and History
The world is full of wonder and beauty.  Great cities from afar beckon; great
monuments rise; great adventures await us all over the world.  But, no matter
where we travel or how far we roam, there is nothing so special as the place
we call home.  
-- Author Unknown
Home...the spot on earth supremely blest,
A dearer, sweeter spot than all the rest.
-- Robert Montgomery
Our precious hearts are shattered, scattered across the land.
I've got to go back to a place where they all know who I am --
where they all understand.  
-- Susan Cowsill, "Crescent City Snow"

Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name,
And they're always glad you came.
You want to be where you can see that troubles are all the same,
You want to go where everybody knows your name.
