The quote above is attributed to a writer by the name of Ella Winter
She made the comment in a conversation with Thomas Wolfe, a writer and film maker. The sentiment, however, is much older than that. Jesus had a rough time returning home, as related in Mark 6:1-6. After trying to speak to the people who knew him while he was growing up, Jesus commented, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home.” Perhaps He was showing a little sadness at the lack of acceptance by the people He knew.
