Inscription for a House

Samuel Johnson (1709-1784), "Insula Sancti Kennethi," lines 21-22:
Quo vagor ulterius? quod ubique requiritur hic est;
    Hic secura quies, hic et honestus amor.
Translated by Niall Rudd:
Why should I wander any further? All that is required anywhere is here; here is serene repose, and here is honourable love.

Isaak Levitan, Sunny Day
