Not on the outer world For inward joy depend; Enjoy the luxury of thought, Make thine own self friend; Not with the restless throng, In search of solace roam But with an independent zeal Be intimate at home.
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

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
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

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
Where'er his fancy bids him roam, In ev'ry Inn he finds a home * * * * * Will not an Inn his cares beguile, Where on each face he sees a smile?
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!
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
