"Aspiration is like the runner's starting point. Then, when the starter fires the gun, he runs at his top speed. This is his aspiration. The goal is God's Hour. He has to run fast, very fast to reach the goal."
"ASPIRATION, or ambition, is the desire to improve your life. Im sure you agree with C. Archie Danielson who said, Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings. Aspiration is like taking a deep breath and optimistically jumping into the adventure of life. Aspiration stokes the fire of enthusiasm."
"Aspiration is another cousin to hope. Aspiration is like ambition, but I see it as to elevate oneself beyond the situation you exist within. Aspiration is about rising, ambition is about gaining. The working class are told they should aspire, because the ruling classes have made the working class situation so unenviable"
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
