"Crying is like washing away the acres of sludge with a convenient tsunami that leaves everything clear and ready for whatever's next."
"I always say crying is like vegetables for the soul. It's so cleaning and makes you feel as if you've done something good for you."
"Crying is like an medicine it's clears your mind of emotions but also of all thoughts, there are times when you can cry, and other times you must remain calm and focused (For example: medical personnel or you before an exam)."
"Crying is like a universal language that involves a list of vocabulary from different cultures and persons."
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.
