Implicit comparisons, creating images that can be perceived as viable or true, that’s the definition of a metaphor. The author’s goal was to put together the greatest list of quotations -- he calls himself a quotation anthologist or quotation curator -- and points to his online collection, Dr. Mardy’s Dictionary of Metaphorical Quotations (DmDmQ), at www.drmardy.com/dmdmq.
