"Maturation is like a plant. It starts as a seed but over time with the right amount of water and nutrition it grows. Just like these babies are learning their motor and gross skills as they grow from 1 month to 2 years of age."
"The process of the perfecting an individual starts from love and matures centering on love. Its maturation is like a bud growing into fruit. When the person attains the proper standard of love, God will dwell in his future marriage. Until love has matured, there is no basis upon which to bear fruit."
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.
