One day closer to the end. Your mileage may vary.

How do you feel about it today?

Plenty of aphorisms but not one analogy in the entire thread.

@farmerman,
analyzing a nepheline syenite is like identifying the components of a fruit cake.

@izzythepush,
You mean you aren’t one day closer today?
Even Sisyphus understood that.
Go roll your rock, or if you lean toward Buddha, go wash your bowl.

@Leadfoot,
What you wrote was hardly enigmatic, and it’s not an analogy. You’re the one who has difficulty understanding.

An analogy is similar to a metaphor, but it’s a working model. The body politic is an analogy, where the functions of government are likened to a human body, with different offices performing the functions of organs.

The ship of state is similar, but this time government is likened to a ship’s crew.

That’s what an analogy is, and I don’t see any others on the thread.

I just love social media.

That’s not an analogy either, I just like to irritate nit pickers.
It’s that kind of day.

@Leadfoot,
It’s hardly nit picking, you just sound a bit thick.

Analogies are written with the symbols : ("Is to") and :: ("As")

And you sound a bit thin today, almost transparent.

@Jasper10,
I can’t edit the post description but let’s just call it our statement for the day.

Dumb language Nazis debating the precious distinction between metaphors aphorisms and analogies are like, or analogous to, a fart context in a pig mud fight!

It is rather unfortunate that analogies were picked up instead of metaphors...analogies are one of the least interesting figure of speech one can use. They are purposefully made simple so that thick uncreative people can sometimes pose as writers.

@Leadfoot,
My comment on the thread choosing analogies was not addressed to you. I think it was an accident that you picked analogies rather then some other figure of speech. Anyway just wanted to let that clear and out of the way, have a nice day Leadfoot!

@Albuquerque,
...moreover I say so with some level of authority because I finish my high school in literature not just top of my class and my school but in the small group that were on the very top of my country. I have been invited to publish some of my poetry which I declined because it is unfinished to my standards and there is to much poets around already anyway, and publishing is somewhat vain and childish. Things like poetry should be reserved to a group of friends or chat buddies and not be public, because they are inherently intimate and private. Anyway I digress...is just entertaining to see a bunch of monkeys debating language, when they barely can communicate or make a real effort to try. People always devolve to unproductive tribal fights about very unimportant stuff...and that includes sadly stuff that really seems important but that after a thorough analysis just isn't.

This thread like most of the threads in most of the forums in the world is made of:

SHATTERED WORDS

Lost and found, the timeless rainbow of my bubble soap knights...
randomly displaced between the hours of no thought !
Frail suspension, of shadows to forecast, once upon the time...
Shattered words, in the twilight of my Japanese gardens.
Vaguely vain, sleepy slow, as yesterdays from yesterday,
wondering, might as mist, in the dusty twist of memories...
Pilgrimage for noway, "La Mancha" to nowhere !
Smoking thoughts, as settlers of no thought,
under the vanishing light of my last true cigar...

Best Regards>FILIPE DE ALBUQUERQUE
