House Cleaning Quotes Worth Thinking About

I love a good quotation, so I thought I would put together a list of house cleaning quotes that made me think.

Sometimes a good quote inspires the soul, sometimes it just makes you smile.

So, without further ado, here are some good quotations I have found to help keep everything we do as household managers in perspective.

  • Cleaning anything involves making something else dirty, but anything can get dirty without something else getting clean. - Laurence J. Peter (US educator & writer (1919 - 1988))
  • A good home must be made, not bought. - Joyce Maynard, "Domestic Affairs"
  • My home is not a place, it is people. - Lois McMaster Bujold, "Barrayar", 1991
  • WhatÂ’s more important to a sense of "home" is not perfectly arranged designer pillows, but the comforting arms of a mother or wife who is available and content when her family needs it. - Life From The Roof
  • Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow
    For babies grow up, we've learned to our sorrow
    So quiet down, cobwebs
    Dust, go to sleep
    I'm rocking my baby, and babies don't keep.
  • Every house where love abides
    And friendship is a guest,
    Is surely home, and home, sweet home
    For there the heart can rest.
    -Henry Van Dyke
  • Law of Window Cleaning: It's on the other side - Unknown
  • Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the sidewalk before it stops snowing. - Phyllis Diller
  • The only advantage of not being too good a housekeeper is that your guests are so pleased to feel how very much better they are. - Eleanor Roosevelt”

I hope you have enjoyed this list of quotes.

I am sure there are many more. If you have a good one, contact me and put "house cleaning quote" in the subject line.
