The Origin Of ‘Home is where the heart is.’
It could be apocryphal, and you know how the Web can be unreliable, but I found the phrase ‘Home is where the heart is.’ attributed in several sources on the web to Gaius Plinius Secundas, otherwise known as Pliny the Elder.
As Wikipedia describes him – he was a Roman author, naturalist, and natural philosopher, as well as naval and army commander of the early Roman Empire, and personal friend of the emperor Vespasian.
Here’s something else about Pliny. He died in AD 79 at the age of 56 while attempting a rescue of those caught in Pompeii and Herculaneum during the great eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
When warned not to approach the shore for fear of being overcome by the eruption from Vesuvius, he is reported to have said ‘Fortune favours the brave.’
