Similes

Life is like a box of chocolates: you never know which one you’re going to get.

Let’s use this example to understand what a simile is:

  • simile is a phrase that uses a comparison to describe. For example, “life” can be described as similar to “a box of chocolates.”
  • You know you’ve spotted one when you see the words like or as in a comparison.
  • Similes are like metaphors. But metaphors aren’t the same as similes. See More . . .
