      - Aristotle, Poetics (XXII)

Metaphor gives light and strength to description.
      - John Brent

The coldest word was once a glowing new metaphor.
      - Thomas Carlyle

An epithet or metaphor drawn from nature ennobles art; an epithet or metaphor drawn from art degrades nature.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Figured and metaphorical expressions do well to illustrate more abstruse and unfamiliar ideas, which the mind is not yet thoroughly accustomed to.
      - John Locke (1)

Metaphor is no argument, though it be sometimes the gunpowder to drive one home, and imbed it in the memory.
      - James Russell Lowell

A world ends when its metaphor has died.
      - Archibald MacLeish

Of metaphors, those generally conduce most to energy or vivacity of style which illustrate an intellectual by a sensible object.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately
