  • 'Tis sweet to hear the watch-dog's honest bark
    Bay deep-mouth'd welcome as we draw near home;
    'Tis sweet to know there is an eye will mark
    Our coming, and look brighter when we come.
  • He enter'd in his house—his home no more,
    For without hearts there is no home;—and felt
    The solitude of passing his own door
    Without a welcome.
  • “The better of the two is one who is the first to give a greeting” (6210).
    • Sahih Muslim. Quoted from Ram Swarup, Understanding Islam through Hadis, 1983. [1]
  • I hold your dainties cheap, sir, and your welcome dear.
  • A table full of welcome makes scarce one dainty dish.
  • Small cheer and great welcome makes a merry feast.
  • Sir, you are very welcome to our house:
    It must appear in other ways than words,
    Therefore I scant this breathing courtesy.
  • I reckon this always, that a man is never undone till he be hanged, nor never welcome to a place till some certain shot be paid and the hostess say "Welcome!"

  • Come in the evening, or come in the morning,
    Come when you're looked for, or come without warning,
    Kisses and welcome you'll find here before you,
    And the oftener you come here the more I'll adore you.
  • Shall I meet other wayfarers at night?
    Those who have gone before.
    Then must I knock, or call when just in sight?
    They will not keep you standing at that door.
  • Don't we all need someone to greet us
    to make us feel we're here?
