When men do not love their hearth, nor reverence their thresholds, it is a sign that they have dishonoured both … Our God is a house-hold God, as well as a heavenly one; He has an altar in every man’s dwelling.

When men do not love their hearth, nor reverence their thresholds,
it is a sign that they have dishonoured both … Our God is a house-hold God,
as well as a heavenly one; He has an altar in every man’s dwelling.
                       John Ruskin (1819-1900), The Seven Lamps of Architecture, 1908
