home is where the heart is

  1. One's true home is where one feels happiest.
    • 1868, "Home", The Ladies' Repository, vol 28, p. 107 (Google books):
      That which is to make home desirable does not abide in the parlor, the cellar, or the garret; it does not grow with the flowers of the garden, nor with the grass of the meadow, but is fitly expressed in the quaint old adage, "Home is where the heart is."
