An entire book of metaphors, similes and analogies.
This book inspired me to add a 'favorite sayings' page at the top of this blog.
The author includes a metaphor or analogy for just about every aspect of life.
Here are the chapters:
The Human Condition
Wit and Humor
Insults and Criticism
Marriage, Home and Family Life
Sex is an Emotion in Motion
Ages and Stages of Life
Stage and Screen
The Literary Life (readers and writers will love this section)
A few of my favorites (there are so many):
- Remarrying a husband you've divorced is like having your appendix put back in. Phyllis Diller
- Writing books is the closest men ever come to childbearing. Norman Mailer
- Going out with a jerky guy is kind of like having a piece of food caught in your teeth. All your friends notice it before you do. Livia Squires
