Spurt Simile quotes by Dennis Vickers
#1. Spurting out like formula from a colicky baby's mouth, drops ejected from boiled frosting boiling, preliminary spurts from Old Faithful before the earthquake. #Quote by Dennis Vickers
Spurt Simile quotes by Matthew De Abaitua

Spurt Simile quotes by Pascal Garnier
#3. Nadine found herself standing in front of a row of streaming faces, like waxworks of forgotten celebrities being melted down before coming back as more contemporary figures. #Quote by Pascal Garnier
Spurt Simile quotes by Douglas Adams
#4. The sweat stood out cold on Ford Prefect's brow, and slid round the electrodes strapped to his temples. These were attached to a battery of electronic equipment - imagery intensifiers, rhythmic modulators, alliterative residulators and simile dumpers - all designed to heighten the experience of the poem and make sure that not a single nuance of the poet's thought was lost. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Spurt Simile quotes by Lois Lowry
#5. When he spoke, a new spurt of blood drenched the coarse cloth across his chest and sleeve. #Quote by Lois Lowry
Spurt Simile quotes by Dennis Vickers
#6. Deep ridges crossed his forehead like terraces in a Thai hillside, tucks in a leather cushion, troughs across a bloodhound's jowls. #Quote by Dennis Vickers
Spurt Simile quotes by Stephen Moles
#7. The amount of perfume she had on was like a human sacrifice on Incense Night. #Quote by Stephen Moles
Spurt Simile quotes by Bill Murray
#8. People are like music, some speak the truth and others are just noise. #Quote by Bill Murray
Spurt Simile quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#9. Human beings innate complexities resist reduction into simple sentences and neat paragraphs. The stories that come nearest to expressing the ambivalent nature of people are textured and occasionally inconsistent and express waves of inner uncertainty. A simile and a metaphor are not literally true. A figure of speech, symbols, and allegories are mere expressions that when interlinked with other text assist explain facts, ideas, and emotions. Useful facts are elusive; we must look for them, and then express them using whatever mechanism proves most authoritative. We can never directly describe emotions; we resort to metaphors to describe emotions and other illusive thoughts. Ideas by virtue of their untested nature are often untrue or at best rough approximations of truth. Lyrical writing is equivocal; it is never exactly true or precisely false. Lyrical language attempts to express and connect sentiments through extrapolation and misdirection. The writer's task is to melt away durable facts, breakdown the symbolic depictions of solid reality, and discover the liquidity of a passionate inner life that provides the hot breath to our steamy humanness. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Spurt Simile quotes by Ned Beauman
#10. The simile has to match the tone of its surroundings and has to be like a little joke. Writing a simile that isn't funny on some level is quite hard. #Quote by Ned Beauman
Spurt Simile quotes by Neil Gaiman
#11. Entering the casino one is beset at every side by invitation - invitations such that it would take a man of stone, heartless, mindless, and curiously devoid of avarice, to decline them. Listen: a machine gun rattle of silver coins as they tumble and spurt down into a slot machine tray and overflow onto monogrammed carpets is replaced by the siren clangor of the slots, the jangling, blippeting chorus swallowed by the huge room, muted to a comforting background chatter by the time one reaches the card tables, the distant sounds only loud enough to keep the adrenaline flowing through the gamblers' veins. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Spurt Simile quotes by Robert Twigger
#12. Monopathy, or over-specialisation, eventually retreats into defending what one has learnt rather than making new connections. The initial spurt of learning gives out, and the expert is left, like an animal, merely defending his territory. #Quote by Robert Twigger
Spurt Simile quotes by Neil Strauss
#13. There was one fledgling PUA, in particular, whom Papa bonded with: a twenty-two-year-old Canadian who had discovered the pickup scene when his mother stumbled across a seduction website. He called himself Tyler Durden, after the seditious character in Fight Club. And like a virus or a demagogue (choose your simile), he would eventually change the course of the community and everyone in it. He #Quote by Neil Strauss
Spurt Simile quotes by Don DeLillo
#14. She is beginning to think it is possible that all creation is a spurt of blank matter that chances to make an emerald planet here, a dead star there, with random waste between. #Quote by Don DeLillo
Spurt Simile quotes by Jim Butcher
#15. You," Madeline said, her voice hollow and wheezing, "are like a bad case of herpes, wizard. You're inconvenient, embarassing, no real threat, and you simply will not go away. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Spurt Simile quotes by Olivia Sudjic
#16. The sky was always full of birdsong and evening smells, piano music from a window, the stone buildings glowing against the blue, like cream poured over something tart and hot. #Quote by Olivia Sudjic
Spurt Simile quotes by C.B. Lee
#17. Jess is painfully aware of how young she is. Her shirtsleeves don't quite extend to her wrists; after a growth spurt last summer, her debate clothes don't fit as well as she thought. She feels as if she's playing dress-up. #Quote by C.B. Lee
Spurt Simile quotes by Vladimir Mayakovsky
#18. Girl: The kid buys a new tie and you curse him like he was Ramsay MacDonald. #Quote by Vladimir Mayakovsky
Spurt Simile quotes by Dennis Vickers
#19. Laughter erupted from her belly and shot out her mouth like pigeons through an open cage door, schoolchildren bursting into summer vacation, water from a tapped hydrant. #Quote by Dennis Vickers
Spurt Simile quotes by Serj Tankian
#20. People get so attached to a position which they identify themselves with that they just spurt it out, but they can't really give you a viable reason why they feel that way. #Quote by Serj Tankian
Spurt Simile quotes by Louis Aragon
#21. How a life exiles itself! The years slip by and leave man, after so many peregrinations and meta-morphoses, absolutely akin himself, for the sake of a little moral simile, to a circumstance which results in his remembering. #Quote by Louis Aragon
Spurt Simile quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#22. But even your best love is only an enraptured simile and a painful ardour. It is a torch to light you to loftier paths. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Spurt Simile quotes by John Connolly
#23. Earle had friendly written all over him the way that a plague rat had "Hug Me" emblazoned on its fur. #Quote by John Connolly
Spurt Simile quotes by Ajahn Brahm
#24. Another simile is that of the man who was born and raised in a prison and who has never set foot outside. All he knows is prison life. He would have no conception of the freedom that is beyond his world. And he would not understand that prison is suffering. If anybody suggested that his world was dukkha, he would disagree, for prison is the limit of his experience. But one day he might find the escape tunnel dug long ago that leads beyond the prison walls to the unimaginable and expansive world of real freedom. Only when he has entered that tunnel and escaped from his prison does he realize how much suffering prison actually was, and the end of that suffering, escaping from jail is happiness.

In this simile the prison is the body, the high prison walls are the five senses, and the relentless demanding prison guard is one's own will, the doer. The tunnel dug long ago, through which one escapes, is called jhana [meditation] (as at AN IX, 42). Only when one has experienced jhana does one realize that the five-sense world, even at its best, is really a five-walled prison, some parts of it is a little more comfortable but still a jail with everyone on death row! Only after deep jhana does one realize that "will" was the torturer, masquerading as freedom, but preventing one ever resting happily at peace. Only outside of prison can one gain the data that produces the deep insight that discovers the truth about dukkha.

In summary, without experience of jhana, on #Quote by Ajahn Brahm
Spurt Simile quotes by Jarod Kintz
#25. A smile is like a simile, if you have a mouth like a metaphor. That would make for like the best kiss ever. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Spurt Simile quotes by Margaret Atwood
#26. Already my childhood seemed far away - a remote age, faded and bittersweet, like dried flowers. Did I regret its loss, did I want it back? I didn't think so. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Spurt Simile quotes by Thomas Paine
#27. If the first king of any country was by election, that likewise establishes a precedent for the next; for to say, that the right of all future generations is taken away, by the act of the first electors, in their choice not only of a king, but of a family of kings for ever, hath no parrallel in or out of scripture but the doctrine of original sin, which supposes the free will of all men lost in Adam; and from such comparison, and it will admit of no other, hereditary succession can derive no glory. For as in Adam all sinned, and as in the first electors all men obeyed; as in the one all mankind were subjected to Satan, and in the other to Sovereignty; as our innocence was lost in the first, and our authority in the last; and as both disable us from reassuming some former state and privilege, it unanswerably follows that original sin and hereditary succession are parallels. Dishonorable rank! Inglorious connexion! Yet the most subtile sophist cannot produce a juster simile. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Spurt Simile quotes by Olivia Sudjic
#28. For a while this seemed to do the trick, and I felt that whatever contamination I had helped to spread, the boundaries I had helped to break, sprinkling flakes of myself all over the surface of New York like so much fish food, had been forgiven. #Quote by Olivia Sudjic
Spurt Simile quotes by Joel Salatin
#29. We move the cows every day to a new spot which allows the grass time to recuperate and go through its what I call 'the teenage growth spurt.' #Quote by Joel Salatin
Spurt Simile quotes by Ilias Oumarri
#30. No level raised without reading, is like a body trying to live without breathing. #Quote by Ilias Oumarri
Spurt Simile quotes by John Piper
#31. A prayerless Christian is like a bus driver trying alone to push his bus out of a rut because he doesn't know Clark Kent is on board. #Quote by John Piper
Spurt Simile quotes by Ogden Nash
#32. Very Like a Whale

One thing that literature would be greatly the better for
Would be a more restricted employment by authors of simile and metaphor.
Authors of all races, be they Greeks, Romans, Teutons or Celts,
Can'ts seem just to say that anything is the thing it is but have
to go out
of their way to say that it is like something else.
What foes it mean when we are told
That the Assyrian came down like a wolf on the fold?
In the first place, George Gordon Byron had had enough experience
To know that it probably wasn't just one Assyrian, it was a lot
of Assyrians.
However, as too many arguments are apt to induce apoplexy and thus
hinder longevity,
We'll let it pass as one Assyrian for the sake of brevity.
Now then, this particular Assyrian, the one whose cohorts were gleaming
in purple and gold,
Just what does the poet mean when he says he came down like a wolf
the fold?
In heaven and earth more than is dreamed of in our philosophy there
a great many things,
But i don't imagine that among then there is a wolf with purple
and gold
cohorts or purple and gold anythings.
No, no, Lord Byron, before I'll believe that this Assyrian was actually
like a wolf I must have some kind of proof;
Did he run on all fours and did he have a hairy tail and a big red
mouth and
big white teeth and did he say Woof woof?
Fra #Quote by Ogden Nash
Spurt Simile quotes by Machik Labdrön
#33. Oh, noble child, everything is severing the mind. As for the mind, it is severing pride. There is nothing whatsoever that is not included in pride. If one simply understands that it is merely the production of pride, then, for example, one is like a thief in an empty house: by simply recognizing [the situation], grasping is impossible. Having correctly understood, there is no practice with an intentional objective. Because it crushes any hesitations (mi phod), it is explained as Chöd. #Quote by Machik Labdrön
Spurt Simile quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#34. I can never look now at the Milky Way without wondering from which of those banked clouds of stars the emissaries are coming. If you will pardon so commonplace a simile, we have set off the fire alarm and have nothing to do but to wait. I do not think we will have to wait for long. #Quote by Arthur C. Clarke
Spurt Simile quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#35. But no. That was analogy rather than homology. What in the humanities they would call a heroic simile, if he understood the term, or a metaphor, or some other kind of literary analogy. And analogies were mostly meaningless - a matter of phenotype rather than genotype (to use another analogy). Most, of poetry and literature, really all the humanities, not to mention the social sciences, were phenotypic as far as Sax could tell. They added up to a huge compendium of meaningless analogies, which did not help to explain things, but only distorted perception of them. A kind of continuous conceptual drunkenness, one might say. Sax himself much preferred exactitude and explanatory power, and why not? If it was 200 Kelvin outside why not say so, rather than talk about witches' tits and the like, hauling the whole great baggage of the ignorant past along to obscure every encounter with sensory reality? It was absurd. #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Spurt Simile quotes by Kristi Cook
#36. Wow," he says, looking around. "You've redecorated."
"When was the last time you were in here?" I search my memory, browsing through images of a much smaller, shaggy-haired Ryder in my room. Eight, maybe nine?
"It's been a while, I guess." He moves over to my mirror, framed with photos that I've tacked up haphazardly on the white wicker frame. Mostly me, Morgan, and Lucy in various posed and candid shots. One of Morgan, just after being crowned Miss Teen Lafayette Country. A couple of the entire cheerleading squad at cheer camp.
I see his gaze linger on one picture in the top right corner. Curious, I move closer, till I can see the photo in question. It was taken on vacation--Fort Walton Beach, at the Goofy Golf--several years ago. Nan and I are standing under the green T-Rex with our arms thrown around each other. Ryder is beside us, leaning on a golf club. He's clearly in the middle of a growth spurt, because he looks all skinny and stretched out. I'd guess we're about twelve.
If you look through our family photo albums, you'll probably find a million pictures that include Ryder. But this is the only one of him in my room. I'd kind of forgotten about it.
But now…I'm glad it's here.
"Look how skinny I was," he says.
"Look how chubby I was," I shoot back, noting my round face.
"You were not chubby. You were cute. In that, you know, awkward years kind of way."
"Thanks. I think. #Quote by Kristi Cook
Spurt Simile quotes by Steve Martin
