Good morning to one and all present here. Today, I’ll be giving a small speech on the topic ‘house and home’.
‘House’ and ‘Home’ are two terms that are often confused with each other. However, there exists a vast difference between the two.
According to Google, the term ‘house’ is defined to be “a building for human habitation, especially one that consists of a ground floor and one or more upper storeys.” An altered simplified definition states that a house is any space that provides “shelter or accommodation”.
Thus, ‘house’, simply put, could mean any space that is used to reside. In this sense, any external space could become a house easily, making it impersonal.
Home, on the other hand, is defined as “the place where one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family or household.” It is, essentially, a space that is personal and has an emotional connection to it.
That is why, they say, “Home is where the heart lies.”
