"An idea is a feat of association, and the height of it is a good metaphor." - Robert Frost

For 3,000 years, great thinkers and writers have relied on the device of metaphor to articulate profound thoughts, give voice to powerful emotions, and creatively explain complex ideas. But metaphorical language is not the sole province of poets, philosophers, and playwrights. If you've ever tried to describe a broken heart, a thankless child, or a glorious triumph, you know how valuable-and compelling-the perfect metaphor can be.

In Metaphors Be With You, respected quotation anthologist Dr. Mardy Grothe has created the definitive collection of history's greatest metaphorical quotations. While crafting his lists of "The Ten Best Things Ever Said" on 250 topics of deep human interest, Dr. Mardy examined more than five million metaphorical observations from literature, politics, philosophy, religion, history, pop culture, and more.

Essential for writers, readers, and language aficionados, this remarkable sourcebook breaks new ground by using QR Codes to digitally integrate it with "Dr. Mardy's Dictionary of Metaphorical Quotations" (DMDMQ), the world's largest online database of metaphorical quotations. The elegant synergy between print and technology provides curious readers with detailed source information for all quotations, innumerable "Error Alerts," countless quotation backstories, and a wealth of other quotations to further their knowledge and deepen their understanding of favorite quotations.

Whether you're crafting a speech, writing a novel, or simply searching for new ways to express yourself, this meticulously curated compendium is as delightful to read as it is invaluable to own-and sure to inspire with the perfect metaphor every time.
