ALLEGORIES
[ Also see Books Fables History Metaphors Mythology Romance Satire Symbols Writing ]

Allegories, when well chosen, are like so many tracks of light in a discourse, that make everything about them clear and beautiful.
      - Joseph Addison

A man conversing in earnest, if he watch his intellectual processes, will find that a material image, more or less luminous, arises in his mind, contemporaneous with every thought, which furnishes the vestment of the thought. Hence, good writing and brilliant discourse are perpetual allegories.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Allegories drawn to great length will always break.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")
