“A nest of meaning”

Just a small gem from the concluding words of Alexander McCall Smith’s “The Dog Who Came In From the Cold:”

We create, he said to himself, in the places where we live,
A nest of meaning. And how big or small it is,
Is neither here nor there; a banker
May live in a mansion, a tramp in a cardboard box,
Each is as much a human home, each equally valuable
To its owner.
