When Paul and I were first friends, starting in the sixth grade and seventh grade, we would sing a little together and we would make up radio shows and become disc jockeys on our home wire recorder. And then came rock and roll. -Art Garfunkel

We proved we could be safe and secure at home, and still have more allies and friends in the world. -Chelsea Clinton

The juvenile sea squirt wanders through the sea searching for a suitable rock or hunk of coral to cling to and make its home for life. For this task, it has a rudimentary nervous system. When it finds its spot and takes root, it doesn't need its brain anymore so it eats it! -Daniel Dennett

The earth is my altar, the sky is my dome, mind is my garden, the heart is my home and I'm always at home – yea, I'm always at Om. -Eden Ahbez

Go big or go home. Because it's true. What do you have to lose? -Eliza Dushku

So that he seemed to depart not from life, but from one home to another. -Cornelius Nepos

The body is the soul's poor house or home, whose ribs the laths are and whose flesh the loam. -Robert Herrick

I don't work a five-day week as a rule, and I've managed to fill that time up. It hasn't been that hard. I volunteer at school. I'm working because I love it. Yet, I don't not envy women who have a stay-at-home job, because you miss stuff. -Deidre Hall

You know, you go home and you try on a new mascara, and I guess a male CEO can't do that. -Andrea Jung

The most influential of all educational factors is the conversation in a child's home. -William Temple

Yes, your home is your castle, but it is also your identity and your possibility to be open to others. -David Soul

HBO has 28 million subscribers, small stuff compared to TBS, which can be seen in 88 million homes. -Suzanne Fields

My judgement is not good when I am on a book tour. I am not thinking about it that much. What happens is I will go back home. I have a 4-year-old and a 1-year-old and a wife who is now taking care of them who is wondering where her husband is. -Michael Lewis

When I go home, I play with my baby dolls and strollers and diaper bags, and play with my sisters. -Dakota Fanning

I feel like I've never had a home, you know? I feel related to the country, to this country, and yet I don't know exactly where I fit in… There's always this kind of nostalgia for a place, a place where you can reckon with yourself. -Sam Shepard

Any old place I can hang my hat is home sweet home to me. -William Jerome

Today, there are more opportunities for writers in terms of access to larger success, but it's more difficult to publish a literary novel in the lower ranges. In other words, you almost have to hit a home run. You can hit a triple, maybe, but nobody's interested in a single. -James Lee Burke

You do it a day at a time. You write as well as you can, you put it in the mail, you leave it under submission, you never leave it at home. -James Lee Burke

Just because you're of the same sex, what difference does it make? Get married to whomever you want. -Famke Janssen
