An' this house just ain't no home, Anytime she goes away.
- Bill Withers

I write and sing about whatever I am able to understand and feel.
- Bill Withers

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone, And she's always gone too long,
Anytime she goes away.
- Bill Withers

through a window than through a mirror.
Otherwise, all you see is yourself and whatever is behind you.
- Bill Withers

 

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance,
chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast,
a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
Gratitude makes sense of our past,
brings peace for today,
and creates a vision for tomorrow.
- Melody Beattie

one for solitude, two for friendship, three for society.

Go oft to the house of thy friend,
for weeds choke the unused path.

I have a great deal of company in the house,
especially in the morning when nobody calls.
- Henry David Thoreau

No house should ever be on a hill or on anything.
It should be of the hill. Belonging to it.
Hill and house should live together
each the happier for the other.
- Frank Lloyd Wright

We see Life through the fun-house mirrors of our point-of-view.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

What we speak becomes the house we live in.
- Hafiz

a home is built with love and dreams.
- Anonymous

A house divided against itself cannot stand.
- Abraham Lincoln

The moment you become miserly you are closed
to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing.
The moment you start clinging to things,
you have missed the target.
Because things are not the target,
you, your innermost being, is the target -
not a beautiful house, but a beautiful you;
not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.
- Osho

A house is not a home unless it
contains food and fire
for the mind as well as the body.
- Benjamin Franklin

I honor you, Hero, for you do not play to the crowd.
You play to your own soul.
An audience of one fills the house with its appreciation and applause.
Others follow you, and may attempt to emulate you,
but that is not why you are a hero.
Fame may smile upon you, or it may not.
The world may cheer your name, or you may be the unknown warrior
who rescued comrades in battle,
or taught a young girl how to shed tears of joy.
Whatever you did, you did not do for fame.
If you had, you would not be a Hero.
You are a Hero for your bold courageous inspired action.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

You shall not covet your neighbor's house;
you shall not covet your neighbor's wife,
nor his male servant, nor his female servant,
nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.
- Exodus 20:17

Life's like Vegas. You're up, you're down,
but in the end the house always wins.
Doesn't mean you didn't have fun.
- the Woody Allen movie Deconstructing Harry

Poets have said that the reason to have children is
to give yourself immortality.
Immortality? Now that I have five children,
my only hope is that they are all out of the house before I die.
- Bill Cosby

Living in fear of anything is a terrible waste
of what could be a great life.
If you live in fear of losing your job,
either you fear the embarrassment of being jobless,
or you fear the loss of material goods -
house, car, and such.
If you live in fear of losing your stuff and money,
it is clear that they own you.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your hearth
or burn down your house, you can never tell.
- Joan Crawford

He taught me housekeeping; when I divorce I keep the house.
- Zsa Zsa Gabor

Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another,
but let him work diligently and build one for himself,
thus by example assuring that his own
shall be safe from violence when built.
- Abraham Lincoln

Completion:
It is time for the project to be over.
You submitted the proposal, you painted your house,
you passed-in the term paper.
Whatever praise or criticism you received,
it is now time to move on to your next project.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

a chicken house as to build a cathedral.

a tolerable planet to put it on?

two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife,
confounding their enemies and delighting their friends.

If you really want to make a friend,
go to someone's house and eat with him...
the people who give you their food give you their heart.

If a friend of mine gave a feast, and did not invite me to it,
I should not mind a bit.
but if a friend of mine had a sorrow
and refused to allow me to share it,
I should feel it most bitterly.
If he shut the doors of the house of mourning against me,

so that I might share in what I was entitled to share.
If he thought me unworthy, unfit to weep with him,
I should feel it as the most poignant humiliation.
- Oscar Wilde

If I were asked to name the chief benefit of the house,
I should say: the house shelters day-dreaming,
the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace.

A man's house is his castle.
- James Otis

The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to
enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you
