Thou shalt not covet thy
neighbour's house, thou shalt not
covet thy neighbour's wife, nor
his manservant, nor his maid-
servant, nor his ox, nor his ass,
nor any thing that is thy neigh-
bour's.

Exodus 20:17, King James Version
Holy Bible


Many waters cannot quench
love, neither can the floods drown
it: if a man would give all the
substance of his house for love,
it would utterly be contemned.

Song of Solomon 8:7, King James Version
Holy Bible

Claire stretched out against the wall and kissed it. Glad to see you, too, she whispered, and pressed her cheek against the smooth surface. It almost felt like it hugged her back. Dude, it's a house, Shane said from behind her. Hug somebody who cares.

How beautiful they stand.

Stages
 
As every flower fades and as all youth
Departs, so life at every stage,
So every virtue, so our grasp of truth,
Blooms in its day and may not last forever.
Since life may summon us at every age
Be ready, heart, for parting, new endeavor,
Be ready bravely and without remorse
To find new light that old ties cannot give.
In all beginnings dwells a magic force
For guarding us and helping us to live.
 
Serenely let us move to distant places
And let no sentiments of home detain us.
The Cosmic Spirit seeks not to restrain us
But lifts us stage by stage to wider spaces.
If we accept a home of our own making,
Familiar habit makes for indolence.
We must prepare for parting and leave-taking
Or else remain the slaves of permanence.
 
Even the hour of our death may send
Us speeding on to fresh and newer spaces,
And life may summon us to newer races.
So be it, heart: bid farewell without end.

The Glass Bead Game
Hermann Hesse

If I had a message to give my dad, it'd probably be, Thank you, thank you, thank you. He's helped me so much on this crazy journey. Giving up his job, being away from my mom, and being away from home for that much just because of me? It's a lot. And I thank him for it.

Family! ... the home of all social evil, a charitable institution for comfortable women, an anchorage for house-fathers, and a hell for children.
August Strindberg

Morality aside, there are other factors deterring strategic defaults, whether in recourse or nonrecourse states. These include the economic and emotional costs of giving up one's home and moving, the perceived social stigma of defaulting, and a serious hit to a borrower's credit rating.

Any one who has been to an English public school will always feel comparatively at home in prison. It is the people brought up in the gay intimacy of the slums, Paul learned, who find prison so soul-destroying.
Evelyn Waugh

Those comfortably padded lunatic asylums which are known, euphemistically, as the stately homes of England.
