"Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You'll find what you need to furnish it–memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey."

Tad Williams
Stone of Farewell

  1. I love Tad Willams. I’ll have to reread it now.

    Great quotes Stacy! I really like this one.

  3. How appropriate that today’s quote was about home, as I also posted about that subject on my own blog! There’s no such thing as coincidence!

    I really like this quote. Really! Really! Really! I have to do something with it! Really!
    Thanks for posting it!

  5. I love the new look of your blog. The quotes are nice, and the colourful picture is nice. I like when I see Canadian things on American blogs.

  6. Stacy – a little under five years ago my parents had to move out of the house I grow up in because my dad had been out of work for three years. I had a very hard time with it as I imagined bringing my children (I have two now) there for many holidays, sleepovers, and playtime. I had envisioned many times teaching them to play the games in the same places I did or read a book in the room I grew up in. It is still hard for me as I miss the house, but this quote has allowed me further peace in my journey in letting go of the lost physical space of my childhood home and focusing on the here and now, wherever it may be. Thank you.
    P.S. I had a wall of quotes in my old college dorm room I titled Quotes to Ponder. I have rekindled the book form of the wall based on your inspiration. Tammy
