“Oh, London is a man’s town, there’s power in the air;
And Paris is a woman’s town, with flowers in her hair;
And it’s sweet to dream in Venice, and it’s great to study Rome;
But when it comes to living, there is no place like home.”

**Henry Van Dyke



“Every dreamer knows that it is entirely possible to be homesick for a place you’ve never been to, perhaps more homesick than for familiar ground.” 

**Judith Thurman

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.
**T.S. Eliot

“You can take the boy out of the Midwest, but you can’t take the Midwest out of the boy.”

**Joe Lando
