"Your partnership is like an insurance policy, a lifeline you can draw on in times of need because he who waters will in turn be watered"
"A partnership is like a seesaw in which you alternately lift each other and let each other down."
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.
