Home Confinement

Famous quotes containing the words home and/or confinement:

    With respect to a true culture and manhood, we are essentially provincial still, not metropolitan,—mere Jonathans. We are provincial, because we do not find at home our standards; because we do not worship truth, but the reflection of truth; because we are warped and narrowed by an exclusive devotion to trade and commerce and manufacturers and agriculture and the like, which are but means, and not the end.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    We’re all of us sentenced to solitary confinement inside our own skins, for life!
    Tennessee Williams (1914–1983)
