Summary
Describing something by relating it to another thing is the essence of metaphorical thought. It is one of the oldest activities of humankind -- and one of the most impressive when done skillfully. Throughout history, many masters of metaphor have crafted observations that are so spectacular they have taken up a permanent residence in our minds. In this book, quotation maven Dr. Mardy Grothe fixes his attention on the three superstars of figurative language -- analogies, metaphors, and similes. The result is a compilation of nearly 2,000 feats of association that will entertain, educate, and occasionally inspire quotation lovers everywhere. In this intellectual smorgasbord, the author explains figurative language before taking readers on a tour of history's greatest word pictures. In chapters on wit, love, sex, stage and screen, insults, politics, sports, and more, you will find quotations from Aristotle and Maya Angelou to George Washington and Oprah Winfrey
