Delightful quotes that celebrate the sweetness of home.

Top Quotes About Home

It is said that there is no place like home. Then, what is it that makes a house a home? For one, it is the one place in the whole world where people feel most comfortable, where they yearn to wind up after a tedious day. It is most often the place where they live for the most part of their lives and they feel a kind of synchronization to that place that allow them to move smoothly even in the dark. It is also the place where they spend time with people closest to them, the other members of the family, who make the home 'sweet home'. Considering that 'home' is more of a feeling than a place, it is possible for someone to 'feel at home' while with a special person or a cherished object. We have collected some delightful quotes that celebrate the sweetness of home.
