"The King's fury is like a lion's roar, but His good will is like dew upon the grass."
"Grant said the don't-judge-a-book-by-it's-cover moral has a real business application. Good will is like a boomerang, as the Aussie retirement planner happily discovered. Keep tossing it out and it will come back to you."
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.
