79 Home Quotes To Give You Comfort When You Are Missing Home

Home

Home is where the heart is. Home is not necessarily where you were born or raised. Home can be anywhere your heart feels content and safe. It could be with a friend, or somewhere you go when you want to calm yourself.

No one can decide your home for you. Most people will think of home as where they live. In general terms, that's your home because it's where you go at the end of the day. You may also have a loving family that cares about you and loves you unconditionally.

It feels good to go back home at the end of the day to a warm shower, a delicious meal that has already been prepared, family to share your day with, and a cozy bed to end your day in. Some people are privileged to have this, but others aren't.

Some people go home to toxic family members who only make their day worse than it already was. But that doesn't have to be your forever home. You can always find a way out and have a much better place to call home.

Home should be somewhere you are appreciated, loved with all your flaws, and embraced with open arms. Home can also be someone who you feel good to be around. They are your home if they accept you as you are and still care about you.

You have the freedom to choose your home. That place or person that makes you feel whole. Remember, if your home feels like a stranger to you, there are so many places and people that you can call home.

You can also be someone else's home. You don't even need to do anything big because being there is enough. These ‘home' quotes remind you that home is where the heart is and light your way home.

Home Quotes

Home should be an anchor, a port in a storm, a refuge, a happy place in which to dwell, a place where we are loved and where we can love.

Like the vital rudder of a ship, we have been provided a way to determine the direction we travel. The lighthouse of the Lord beckons to all as we sail the seas of life. Our home port is the celestial kingdom of God. Our purpose is to steer an undeviating course in that direction. A man without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder—never likely to reach home port. To us comes the signal: Chart your course, set your sail, position your rudder, and proceed.

No… I don’t deserve that to think I “need more”… My mother loved me so much, and I have two wonderful friends… and Sohma-kun’s family was so kind to me… You’ve giving me a roof over my head again. I have to be grateful for everything. I’m…blessed. So… So I shouldn’t say… that I want to… go home! I shouldn’t…miss being with the Sohmas so much! I wanted to get to know Sohma-kun and Kyo-kun better. I wanted to eat with them, and talk about all sorts of things. I wanted more… The truth is… I didn’t want to leave! I wanted to stay… I wanted to stay with Sohma-kun and Kyo-kun and Shigure-san. Is that selfish? Does it prove that I’m too soft on myself?

No… I don’t deserve that to think I “need more”… My mother loved me so much, and I have two wonderful friends… and Sohma-kun’s family

That was a long time ago. And if you'll recall, you already punished me for it. You told me to leave, remember? You know that's the only reason I live in that house instead of here.

Howl : The Witch of the Waste and Madame Suliman's dog at my table? What possessed you to let them in my house? Calcifer : I didn't let them in here! Sophie crash landed her plane into my face! Old Sophie : Hmph! Howl : I knew she'd make a great pilot!

I built the ideal house down in the Caribbean. All Englishmen dream of leaving the rain of England and getting a place in the sun - out in the grounds with separate guest houses; that is the ideal scenario.

I sat in the back of the hatchback on the drive home — and that is how I thought of it: home — and fell asleep to the highway's monotonous lullaby.

Takumi shook his head, his hands pushing aside leaves to dig into the still-wet dirt beneath. “I just don’t get why she’d be so afraid of getting expelled. I’d hate to get expelled, but you have to take your lumps. I don’t get it.” “Well, she obviously doesn’t like home.” “True. She only goes home over Christmas and the summer, when Jake is there. But whatever. I don’t like home, either.”

"Maybe you just need to tell us all why you told on Marya. Were you scared of going home or something?" She pulled away from me and gave me a Look of Doom that would have made the Eagle proud, and I felt like she hated me or hated my question or both, and then she looked away, out the window, toward the soccer field, and said, "There's no home."

I thought of the one thing about home that I missed, my dad's study with its built-in, floor-to-ceiling shelves sagging with thick biographies and the black leather chair that kept me just uncomfortable enough to keep from feeling sleepy as I read. It was stupid, to feel as upset as I did. I ditched them, but it felt the other way around. Still, I felt unmistakably homesick.

Gabrielle: I'm sorry. Rambo: No. You didn't do anything. You didn't do anything at all. We're going to go home, and everything's going to be good. It's going to be alright. Gabrielle: Okay. Rambo: I got this back for you.

I've lived in a world of death. I tried to come home, but I never really arrived. A part of my mind and soul got lost along the way, but my heart was still here where I was born, where I would defend to the end the only family I've ever known, the only home I've ever known. All the ones I've loved are now ghosts. But I will fight to keep their memory alive forever.

I, on the other hand......I was born in the Sohma Compound and have lived here all my life.

You gotta make this person fall in love with you again because they have no memory or recollection of who you were at that time. Because you’re a different person every time you come home, you grow.

I recommend you leave that house and have nothing more to do with the Sohma family. Shigure being who he is, I’m sure he left you in the dark. You see, the Sohma family continues to be possessed by vengeful spirits. We’re not the jolly bunch you probably imagine. We are bizarre, devious, and cursed. Before you regret getting involved with this family, get out now. Akito is attempting to use you.

Why am I so pissed off? Feels like something urging me to do…what? But also like I got left behind. What the hell is this vague irritation? Maybe because I was in the middle of all that sickly sweet cheeriness? Yeesh. “Make yourself at home.” Yeah, right. […] This is where I belong. A place where I can fall as far as I want.

Murdock: Colonel, are you sure Rambo's still in balance with the war? We can't afford having him involved in this mission and then crack in the pressure of that hell. Trautman: Pressure? Let me just say that Rambo is the best combat vet I've ever seen. A pure fighting machine with only a desire to win a war that someone else lost. And if winning means he has to die, he'll die. No fear, no regrets. And one more thing: what you choose to call hell, he calls home.

So quiet that house was in the night, so quiet all the other little homes around it were that held the elderly in them and the old alone or still in couples sleeping early, waking, lying awake and thinking about the past. So much past every night in the silence settling over those houses that all looked much the same on a hillside creeping up against the rock and gorse and tipping down to the river where it widened, widened and ended in the sea.

Women can go mad with insomnia. The sleep-deprived roam houses that have lost their familiarity. With tea mugs in hand, we wander rooms, looking on shelves for something we will recognize: a book title, a photograph, the teak-carved bird -- a souvenir from what place? A memory almost rises when our eyes rest on a painting's grey sweep of cloud, or the curve of a wooden leg in a corner. Fingertips faintly recall the raised pattern on a chair cushion, but we wonder how these things have come to be here, in this stranger's home. Lost women drift in places where time has collapsed. We look into our thoughts and hearts for what has been forgotten, for what has gone missing. What did we once care about? Whom did we love? We are emptied. We are remote. Like night lilies, we open in the dark, breathe in the shadowy world. Our soliloquies are heard by no one.

We have a light upon our house, and it gives hope to all who sail upon the stormy seas. Do ya know what it means to have a light burning atop your home? It is safety, a place of refuge, seen by all that as a signal that ye stand for something greater than this world, greater than us all.
