Wisdom from Polonius


Marguerite Duras

A house means a family house, a place specially meant for putting children and men in so as to restrict their waywardness and distract them from the longing for adventure and escape they’ve had since time began.


Gertrude Stein

A house in the country is not the same as a country house.


Welsh Proverb

The house with no child in it is a house with nothing in it.


Jerome K. Jerome

I want a house that has got over all its troubles; I don’t want to spend the rest of my life bringing up a young and inexperienced house.


Sophocles

What house, bloated with luxury, ever became prosperous without a woman’s excellence?
