Using Metaphors

  • Doug Rose


We live in a world filled with metaphors. We see them in common phrases. You can be as “busy as a bee,” “heartbroken,” or as “quiet as a mouse.” They’re common in literature. You’ve probably heard that metaphor that “all the world’s a stage” or that Macbeth tried to look into the “seeds of time.” Politicians use them in their speeches. There was President Reagan’s “morning in America,” and President Obama said the economy had run “into a ditch.”
