Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam
Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home.
J H Payne, Clari, the Maid of Milan
Home is a name, a word, it is a strong one; stronger than magician ever spoke, or spirit ever answered to, in the strongest conjuration.
Charles Dickens, 1844, Martin Chuzzlewit, ch. 35
A house is a machine for living in.
Le Corbusier, 1923, Toward a New Architecture, ch. 1, "Eyes Which Do Not See: Airplanes"
