Layer Quotations

Civilization is like a thin layer of ice upon a deep ocean of chaos and darkness.
Werner Herzog

Society is like a stew. If you don't stir it up every once in a while then a layer of scum floats to the top.
Edward Abbey

The way I see it is that love can put an end to this bureaucracy people go through in their relationships. But it can't blind you to the fact that maybe there are bombs, there are problems and the ozone layer is depleting.
Adrienne Shelly

Life is like an onion. You peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep.
Carl Sandburg

Our everyday cares, making a living, the crazy rat race of life, often make us forget the value of a good deed. Thus, the goodness that exists within each and every one of us is covered with layer upon layer of indifference and unawareness. In fact, we almost have to be reminded of the fact that goodness is there inside us.
Shari Arison
