Famous quotes containing the word home:

    Keep the home fires burning,
    While your hearts are yearning,
    Though your lads are far away
    They dream of home.

    Through the dark cloud shining;
    Turn the dark cloud inside out,
    Till the boys come home.
    Lena Guilbert Ford (1870–1916)
