Stay is a charming word in a friend's vocabulary.
      - Amos Bronson Alcott

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
      - Bible, Isaiah (ch. LII, v. 7)

And kind the voice and glad the eyes
  That welcome my return at night.
      - William Cullen Bryant

'Tis sweet to hear the watch-dog's honest bark
  Bay deep-mouth'd welcome as we draw near home;
    'Tis sweet to know there is an eye will mark
      Our coming, and look brighter when we come.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Don Juan (canto I, st. 123)

He enter'd in his house--his home no more,
  For without hearts there is no home; and felt
    The solitude of passing his own door
      Without a welcome.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Don Juan (canto III, st. 52)

Come in the evening, or come in the morning,
  Come when you're looked for, or come without warning,
    Kisses and welcome you'll find here before you,
      And the oftener you come here the more I'll adore you.
      - Thomas Osborne Davis, The Welcome

Welcome as kindly showers to the long parched earth.
      - John Dryden

Welcome anything that comes to you, but do not long for anything else.
      - Andre Gide

I hope, as no unwelcome guest,
  At your warm fireside, when the lamps are lighted,
    To have my place reserved among the rest,
      Nor stand as one unsought and uninvited!
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The atmosphere
  Breathes rest and comfort and the many chambers
    Seem full of welcomes.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
        Masque of Pandora (pt. V, l. 33)

Welcome, my old friend,
  Welcome to a foreign fireside.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
        To an Old Danish Song-Book

Welcome as happy tidings after fears.
      - Thomas Otway

Shall I meet other wayfarers at night?
  Those who have gone before.
    Then must I knock, or call when just in sight?
      They will not keep you standing at that door.
      - Christina Georgina Rossetti, Up Hill

Welcome as the flowers in May.
      - Sir Walter Scott, Rob Roy (ch. VIII)

A hundred thousand welcomes: I could weep,
  And I could laugh; I am light and heavy:

A table full of welcome makes scarce one dainty dish.

I am glad to see you well;
  Horatio,--or I do forget myself.

To say you are welcome were superfluous.

Welcome ever smiles,
  And Farewell goes out sighing.
      - William Shakespeare

Trust me, sweet,
  Out of silence yet I picked a welcome,
    And in the modesty of fearful duty
      I read as much as from the rattling tongue
        Of saucy and audacious eloquence.
      - William Shakespeare,
        A Midsummer Night's Dream
         (Theseus at V, i)

Bid that welcome
  Which comes to punish us, and we punish it,
    Seeming to bear it lightly.

         (Antony at IV, xiv)

I hold your dainties cheap, sir, and your welcome dear.
      - William Shakespeare, The Comedy of Errors

O, Signior Balthazar, either at flesh or fish,
  A table-full of welcome makes scarce one dainty dish.
      - William Shakespeare, The Comedy of Errors

Small cheer and great welcome makes a merry feast.
