"We must understand that contentment is like a muscle-the more practiced, the stronger it will be."
"Contentment is like a motorway stop, where we pause, look back on where we've been and then prepare for the next part of the journey."
"Releasing contentment is like a sprinkler system for our own yard that keeps our grass just as green as that on the other side of the fence."
"Our culture's contentment is like Cotton Candy. It might taste good, but it's fleeting. You can't build your life on it. You can't eat too much of it, or it will make you sick."
"I believe that we all have the gift of contentment. Contentment is like a sliced pie, one of those slices is financial discipline. Choosing to live "smaller" can encourage our creative spirit to sustain the gift of contentment."
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.
