Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. John McDonald:

    Your mind, which is yourself, can be likened to a house. The first necessary move then, is to rid that house of all but furnishings essential to success.

  2. Drake Ross:

    I kind of likened it to a hangnail, you know, you’ve got this piece hanging there, and if it gets caught in the knee joint, it’s going to hurt real bad. It could lock up or it could pull away at the good tissue.

  3. J. W. Alexander:

    There are pauses amidst study, and even pauses of seeming idleness, in which a process goes on which may be likened to the digestion of food. In those seasons of repose, the powers are gathering their strength for new efforts; as land which lies fallow recovers itself for tillage.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    True Love can be likened with Silk, which is delicate, gentle, illuminating, smooth and soft - and yet so strong that no force on earth can tear it apart very easily. No knife can pierce through Silk, and no bullets can penetrate Silk. I often think that with time and patience, True Love gradually transforms into Silk....just like the Mulberry leaf turns into Satin robe with time.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Human life is often likened to a Rose Garden. It makes perfect sense to me. As we walk through the garden, we are always refreshed and rejuvenated by the breeze that carries amazingly capturing exquisite fragrance of beautiful flowers all around. Life seems so wonderful at that very moment. And on some occasions, a sight of dried plants, with dry petals lying around, plucked dead flowers and heaps of dead leaves all around sadden us a lot. A cold brutal breeze makes us shiver with the shocking dark reality check. Life can be so amazing and beautiful, and yet can be so cold and cruel sometimes....just like a Rose Garden.
