And seeing the snail, which everywhere doth roam, Carrying his own house still, still is at home, Follow (for he is easy paced) this snail, Be thine own palace, or the world's thy gaol.
Where rose the mountains, there to him were friends; Where rolled the ocean, thereon was his home; Where a blue sky, and glowing clime, extends, He had the passion and the power to roam.Rochdale
My old man said,'Follow the van, Don't dilly-dally on the way!' Off went the cart with the home packed in it, I walked behind with my old cock linnet. But I dillied and dallied, dallied and dillied, Lost the van and don't know where to roam. You can't trust the'specials' like the old time 'coppers' When you can't find your way home.Charles Collins
How much a dunce that has been sent to roam Excels a dunce that has been kept at home.william cowper
Such is the patriot's boast, where'er we roam, His first, best country ever is, at home.Oliver Goldsmith
He's a meticulously hard worker and yet he'll roam the grass of his farm for hours and sometimes for days before he can bring himself to put a word on paper.
As down in the sunless retreats of the oceanSweet flowers are springing no mortal can see,So deep in my soul the still prayer of devotion,Unheard by the world, rises silent to Thee.As still to the star of its worship, though clouded,The needle points faithfully o'er the dim sea,So dark when I roam in this wintry world shrouded,The hope of my spirit turns trembling to Thee.thomas moore
And I'm sorry for us The dinosaurs roam the earth The sky turns greenthom yorke
Travelling, sick My dreams roam On a withered moor.Matsuo Basho
I settled at Cold Mountain long ago Already it seems like ages Wandering free I roam the woods and streams Lingering to watch things be themselves Men don’t come this far into the mountains Where white clouds gather and billow Dry grass makes a comfortable mattress The blue sky is a fine quilt Happy to pillow my head on the rock I leave heaven and earth to endless changehan shan
They change their skies above them, But not their hearts that roam!rudyard kipling
'Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam, Be it ever so humble, there's no place like Home.john howard payne
I read within a poet's book A word that starred the page, "Stone walls do not a prison make, Nor iron bars a cage." Yes, that is true, and something more: You'll find, where'er you roam, That marble floors and gilded walls Can never make a home. But every house where Love abides And Friendship is a guest, Is surely home, and home, sweet home; For there the heart can rest.henry van dyke
But 'midst the crowd, the hum, the shock of men, To hear, to see, to feel, and to possess, And roam along, the world's tired denizen, With none who bless us, none whom we can bless.lord byron
Ever let the Fancy roam, Pleasure never is at home.john keats
On the ragged edge of the world I'll roam, and the home of the wolf shall be my home.robert service
If solid happiness we prize, Within our breast this jewel lies, And they are fools who roam. The world has nothing to bestow; From our own selves our joys must flow, And that dear hut, our home.
Some love to roam o'er the dark sea's foam, Where the shrill winds whistle free.charles mackay
How much a dunce that has been sent to roam Excels a dunce that has been kept at home!
Those spacious regions where our fancies roam, Pain'd by the past, expecting ills to come, In some dread moment, by the fates assign'd, Shall pass away, nor leave a rack behind; And Time's revolving wheels shall lose at last The speed that spins the future and the past: And, sovereign of an undisputed throne, Awful eternity shall reign alone.
The most horrible wickedness and cruelties, and the greatest miseries that have troubled the human race began with this thing called revelation, or revealed religion. … It would be far, far better for us to let a thousand devils roam the world, and publicly preach the doctrine of devils (if there were such a thing, which there isn't), than to let one impostor and monster such a Moses, Joshua, Samuel or the Bible prophets come speaking the so-called word of God, and causing men to believe it.thomas paine
