: HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS -- "One prefers one's home to all other places. Home is where one is most emotionally attached. Although the proverb has probably been in use since time immemorial, it has been attributed to Pliny the Elder (A.D. 23-79). First attested in the United States in J. J. McCloskey's 'Davey Crockett and Other Plays' : 'Well, home, they say, is where the heart is.' ." From "Random House Dictionary of Popular Proverbs and Sayings" by Gregory Y. Titelman (Random House, New York, 1996).
