Aphorism

Hi,
Perhaps the device you are looking for is "aphorism:"

An aphorism is a concise statement that is made in a matter of fact tone to state a principle or an opinion that is generally understood to be a universal truth. Aphorisms are often adages, wise sayings and maxims aimed at imparting sense and wisdom. It is to be noted that aphorisms are usually witty and curt and often have an underlying tone of authority to them.

But there may be an even better term for you of which I am unaware!

No because it is just

No because it is just describing how you are feeling. Its not really a comparison. It is referring to how people tend to turn over and change positions when they are trying to sleep.

Is this a Metaphor

. Freedom and fear, justice and cruelty, have always been at war, and we know that
God is not neutral between them.

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 04/21/2017 - 03:56
no?

it seems like personification because intangible ideas such as freedom, fear, justice and cruelty are performing a tangible action that is to be at war. a metaphor is when you describe something or someone with another thing like "luck is a fickle mistress" because luck is not a mistress but it connotes that like luck never stays with one person and stuff y'know

is Chummy, the giant was as

is Chummy, the giant was as tall as the Redwood, a metaphor?

Metaphor or Simile

I believe that similes use the word "as" or "like", so your example is a simile. Metaphors don't tell you what you are directly relating the object to. For example " the thunder growling in the bass of the piano" as opposed to a simile " like thunder growling in the bass of the piano".
correct me if I'm wrong but I hope that helped.

You are right

Chummy the giant

No, this is an example of a simile. Similes use "like" or "as". Chummy the giant was AS tall AS the redwood.
Metaphors state that one thing IS another. For example: Usain Bolt was a flash of lightning on the track.
This sentence conveys the message that Bolt was fast, even though it states that he was a literal streak of lightning.
Hope this helps!

Metaphor??

Yes it is a metaphor, as metaphors compare one subject or idea to another. Usually they describe or rename the subject of the sentence, and in this case "mouse" describes or complements "Mia." I've noticed that metaphors always or almost always have a linking verb connecting the two objects together.

Hope this helped!

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 12/06/2016 - 18:28
Not really

If you know what a simile is, it's a comparison using the words like or as. A metaphor is basically the same thing but instead, you don't use like or as.
