Life is like an onion; you peel off layer after layer and then you find there is nothing in it.
James Gibbons Huneker
I think that like the onion, life holds a vast amount of possibilities. There is so much you can do with the simple onion. Some eat them raw and some eat them fried. I think they add some taste to a lot of things that would otherwise be sorta dull.
The use of an onion when cooking is endless it seems. I always have some on hand. Life is full of possibilities too. There are happy and sad moments but there are always many possibilities.
Life is like an onion; you peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep
Sometimes crying or laughing are the only options left, and laughing feels better right now.
from the book Divergent by Veronica Roth
