  Displaying page 1 of 2    Next Page >> 

Our notion of the perfect society embrace's the family as its center and ornament. Nor is there a paradise planted until the children appear in the foreground, to animate and complete the picture.
      - Amos Bronson Alcott

Father, mother, child, are the human trinity, whose substance must not be divided nor its persons confounded. As well reconstruct your granite out of the grains it is disintegrated into as society out of the dissolution of wedded love.
      - Cyrus Augustus Bartol

Home should be the center of joy, equatorial and tropical.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

The parted bosom clings to wonted home, if aught that's kindred cheer the welcome hearth.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Home is the chief school of human virtue.
      - William Ellery Channing

She was little known beyond her home; but there she silently spread around her that soft, pure light, the preciousness of which is never fully understood till it is quenched.
      - William Ellery Channing

The nest may be constructed, so far as the sticks go, by the male bird; but only the hen can line it with moss and down!
      - Frances P. Cobbe

Home is the sacred refuge of our life.
      - John Dryden

A house kept to the end of prudence is laborious without joy; a house kept to the end of display is impossible to all but a few women, and their success is dearly bought.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The domestic man, who loves no music so well as his kitchen clock, and the airs which the logs sing to him as they burn on the hearth, has solaces which others never dream of.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Oh, trebly blest the placid lot of those whose hearth foundations are in pure love laid, where husband's breast with tempered ardor glows, and wife, oft mother, is in heart a maid!
      - Euripides

Silence and chaste reserve is woman's genuine praise, and to remain quiet within the house.
      - Euripides

Domestic happiness is the end of almost all our pursuits, and the common reward of all our pains. When men find themselves forever barred from this delightful fruition, they are lost to all industry, and grow careless of all their worldly affairs. Thus they become bad subjects, bad relations, bad friends, and bad men.
      - Henry Fielding

A cottage will hold as much happiness as would stock a palace.
      - James Hamilton

Lord Lyttleton says true domestic bliss shuns too strong a light.
      - Julius Charles Hare

The man at the head of the house can mar the pleasure of the household, but he cannot make it; that must rest with the woman, and it is her great privilege.
      - Sir Arthur Helps

Apelles used to paint a good housewife on a snail, to import that she home-keeping.
      - James Howell (Howel)

No money is better spent than what is laid out for domestic satisfaction. A man is pleased that his wife is dressed as well as other people, and the wife is pleased that she is dressed.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Women do act their part when they do make their ordered houses know them.
      - James Sheridan Knowles

A prince wants only the pleasure of private life to complete his happiness.
      - Jean de la Bruyere

The sober comfort, all the peace which springs from the large aggregate of little things.
      - Hannah More

Housekeepers, homemakers, wives, and mothers are fundamental social relations, which rest upon woman's characteristics, physical, mental, and moral.
      - Richard Heber Newton

Only so far as a man is happily married to himself is he fit for married life, and family life generally.
      - Novalis (pseudonym of Frederich Leopold von Hardenberg)

The only fountain in the wilderness of life, where man drinks of water totally unmixed with bitterness, is that which gushes for him in the calm and shady recess of domestic life.
      - William Penn

The grandest of heroic deeds are those which are performed within four walls and in domestic privacy.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)
