Home inspiration

The following compilation of quotes, thoughts, etc. serves as inspiration for making our house a home!  I've added links to previous posts reflecting on these quotes (see the bracketed dates). Feel free to make suggestions of other wise words to add to this page!

The true nature of home...is a place of peace...so far as the anxieties of the outer life penetrate into it...it ceases to be home; it is then only a part of the outer world which you have roofed over & lighted fire in. - John Ruskin {4/2/13}

Try to put in the hearts of your children a love for home. Make them long to be with their families. So much sin could be avoided if our people really loved their homes.  - Mother Teresa {12/12/12}

Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do....but how much love we put in that action.  - Mother Teresa {9/25/13}

Good moms have sticky floors, dirty ovens, and happy kids.  - Unknown {4/5/13}

"It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home." - Kathleen Norris {4/10/13}

"I just want people want in and feel like they're getting a hug."  - Mom {4/17/13}

Let the wife make the husband glad to come home, and let him make her sorry to see him leave.  - Martin Luther {6/5/13}

Our House by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young {12/17/10}

I'll light the fire
You put the flowers in the vase
That you bought today 

Staring at the fire
For hours and hours
While I listen to you 
Play your love songs
All night long for me
Only for me 

Come to me now
And rest your head for just five minutes
Everything is good
Such a cozy room
The windows are illuminated
By the sunshine through them 
Fiery gems for you
Only for you 

Our house is a very, very fine house
With two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy
'Cause of you
And our la,la,la, la,la, la, la, la, la, la, la.....
