The quote comes from _Barrayar_ and it's what Aral says to his father when
the old Count is demanding that they pull the plug on baby Miles's
replicator. The Count tells Aral to get himself and his woman out of the
house, and Aral immediately agrees:
"Piotr's voice was anguished. 'You'd throw away your home for this?!'"
"'My home is not a place. It is a person, sir,' Aral said gravely. Then
added reluctantly, 'People.'"
