Im Coming Home

Famous quotes containing the words home and/or coming:

    Let me obtain forgiveness of thee, Samson,
    Afford me place to shew what recompence
    Towards thee I intend for what I have misdone,
    Misguided; only what remains past cure
    Bear not too sensibly, nor still insist
    To afflict thy self in vain: though sight be lost,
    Life yet hath many solaces, enjoy’d
    Where other senses want not their delights
    At home in leisure and domestic ease,
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    With these I would be.
    And with water: the waves coming forward, without cessation,
    The waves, altered by sand-bars, beds of kelp, miscellaneous
    driftwood,
    Topped by cross-winds, tugged at by sinuous undercurrents
    The tide rustling in, sliding between the ridges of stone,
    The tongues of water, creeping in, quietly.
    Theodore Roethke (1908–1963)
