Onion Quotations

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

All we have to do is to peel the shrines like an onion, and we will be with the king himself.
Howard Carter

An onion can make people cry but there's never been a vegetable that can make people laugh.
Will Rogers

For an Apple is in it self a little Universe; the Seed, hotter than the other parts thereof, is its Sun, which diffuses about it self that natural Heat which preserves its Globe: And in the Onion, the Germ is the little Sun of that little World, which vivifies and nourishes the vegetative Salt of that little mass.
Cyrano de Bergerac

It's toughest to forgive ourselves. So it's probably best to start with other people. It's almost like peeling an onion. Layer by layer, forgiving others, you really do get to the point where you can forgive yourself.
Patty Duke
