You can’t afford the house of your dreams. That’s why it is the house of your dreams. So either find a way of getting it (you'll find the means), or be satisfied with dissatisfaction.

Paul Arden

Since my house burnt down, I now own a better view of the rising moon.

Matsuo Basho

Normal, in our house, is like a blanket too short for a bed - sometimes it covers you just fine, and other times it leaves you cold and shaking; and worst of all, you never know which of the two it`s going to be.

Jodi Picoult

Some things don`t matter much [...]. Like the color of a house. How big is that in the overall scheme of life? But lifting a person`s heart - now, that matters. The whole problem with people is [...] they know what matters, but they don`t choose it.

Sue Monk Kidd

Science is built up with facts, as a house is with stones. But a collection of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house.

Henri Poincaré

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

Joan Crawford

If you live to be eighty, you’ll have slept thirty years away, gone to school and sat with homework for nine, and worked for almost fourteen.

When you build a house, you get attached to it, and that attachment can be fatal. When the time comes to run, you don't want anything holding you back.

David Eddings

Love, true love, is always fatal. What I mean is, it does not aim at happiness, at an idyll, at a hand-in-hand eternity of sentimental walks under flowering lime trees, with a gentle light burning on the veranda behind, the house swimming in cool scents. Life can be that, but not love. Love burns with a fierce, more dangerous flame. One day you discover a desire in yourself to encounter this all-consuming passion.

Sándor Márai

Excuses are the nails used to build a house of failure.

Donald Wilder

When all men lift the horn of plenty
in one happy equality,
when all men have an equal station
at the table of justice, and, see
the spiritual light break shining
through the windows of every house
then we can say, no more wandering,
Canaan is here, let us rejoice!

Sándor Petőfi

A house is no home unless it contain food and fire for the mind as well as for the body.

Margaret Fuller

I wanna hang a map of the world in my house. Then I`m gonna put pins into all the locations that I`ve traveled to. But first, I`m gonna have to travel to the top two corners of the map so it won`t fall down.

Mitchell Lee Hedberg

We all live in a house on fire, no fire department to call; no way out, just the upstairs window to look out of while the fire burns the house down with us trapped, locked in it.

Tennessee Williams
