Famous quotes containing the word homes:

My holy of holies is the human body, health, intellect, talent, inspiration, love and the most absolute of freedoms, the freedom from force and falsity in whatever forms they might appear.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)

And my friends, for all of these we have only begun to fight.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)
