The Place We Call Home

Home is the nicest word there is. – Laura Ingalls Wilder

Home should be an oratorio of the memory, 
singing to all our after life melodies and
harmonies of old remembered joy.
– Henry Ward Beecher

It takes a lot of living to make a house a home
It doesn’t make any difference how rich you get to be
How much your chairs and tables cost, how great your luxury
It isn’t home to you though it be the palace of a king,
Until somehow your soul is wrapped round everything.
– Paraphrase of Edgar Guest poem, Home

Nor need we power or splendor,
wide hall or lordly dome;
the good, the true, the tender-
these form the wealth of home.
– Sarah J. Hale

Home is any four walls that enclose the right person.
– Helen Rowland

Home is the place where, when you have to go there,
they have to take you in.
– Robert Frost

Sri Harmandir Sahib - Golden Temple

I am not the born; how can there be either birth or death for me? - Guru Nanak

Death would not be called bad, O people, if one knew how to truly die. - Guru Nanak

If there is one God, then there is only His way to attain Him, not another. One must follow that way and reject the other. Worship not him who is born only to die, but Him who is eternal and is contained in the whole universe. - Guru Nanak

The greatest comforts and lasting peace are obtained, when one eradicates selfishness from within. - Guru Gobind Singh

Day and night, meditate forever on the Lord. - Guru Gobind Singh

I would like my life to be a statement of love and compassion, and where it isn't, that's where my work lies - Guru Ram Dass
