English ppt on metaphors of life

  1. 1. PRESENTING- A PPT ON METAPHORS OF LIFE
  2. 2. Let us first know , what is METAPHOR ? Metaphor is a figure of speech which makes an implicit, implied or hidden comparison between two things or objects that are poles apart from each other but have some characteristics common between them. In other words, a resemblance of two contradictory or different objects is made based on a single or some common characteristics. Furthermore, a metaphor develops a comparison which is different from a simile i.e. we do not use “like” or “as” to develop a comparison in a metaphor. It actually makes an implicit or hidden comparison and not an explicit one.
  3. 3. Some examples of metaphors: 1.My brother was boiling mad. (This implies he was too angry.) 2.The assignment was a breeze. (This implies that the assignment was not difficult.) 3.It is going to be clear skies from now on. (This implies that clear skies are not a threat and life is going to be without hardships) 4.The skies of his future began to darken. (Darkness is a threat; therefore, this implies that the coming times are going to be hard for him.) 5.Her voice is music to his ears. (This implies that her voice makes him feel happy)
  4. 4. 1. LIFE IS A RIVER The river appears to be a symbol for life .The various instances which draw parallel between river and life are as follows : i) Rivers start out slowly and quietly and learn to crawl along in meandering fashion before they take off down a hill, eventually building up to a roaring, noisy life pouring down the side of a mountain. We start out slowly and learn to crawl before we walk and talk and then run and yell. ii)When the river comes out of the mountains its movement is very noisy , quick and it is in full vigour . It is in a hurry to reach its destination , that is , the sea . Similarly , man , in his youth , is very energetic , lively , enthusiastic and full of vigour . iii) Then reaching a plateau in their path, rivers slow back down and move in leisurely fashion again, in some places even becoming stagnant. Our lives are like that too. We hit peaks and valleys along the way. METAPHORS OF LIFE
  5. 5. . iv)When the river comes closer to the ocean , its movement becomes slow and smooth , which can be compared to man in his old age , who then becomes very calm , gentle , soft and lethargic . v)During the course of the river’s journey ,it takes a lot of things along with it like blossom , silt , gravel and fish. In the same way man even meets , accompanies and moves forward in life with the people he meets in the journey of his life. vi)Some rivers achieve fame and move great fortunes, feeding the world’s great oceans. Others hit dead ends and die out, just like us. They may just become part of a dirty little man-made lake where nothing much happens and no one notices . Similarly , some of us become very famous and some remain inferior as well as infamous.
  6. 6. 2.LIFE IS A NOVEL Our life is a novel where we meet many persons who appears to be the characters of the novel .We are the authors of our life . It means that our life will go on according to our own will. As a novel is full of suspense and strange things , our life is also too much unexpected and unpredictable where we have no idea what is going to happen until we turn the page. For life, everyday is a new page and each stage of our life is a new chapter where we are the protagonist. The only difference between life and a novel is that , every novel has an end but in life , every end is a new beginning.
  7. 7. 3.LIFE IS A CAMERA We should look at what is important in life for us. I think it is to always live life to the fullest, meaning to be successful and to have fun at the same time. It is always best to turn the bad things that happen to us into something good , as we do with the photos in a camera by editing and don’t linger on them for a long time. Life can be presumed as a camera . We have to focus on those things which are important for us and neglect the trivial incidents. Or, we can also say that if we suppose life to be a camera then we should capture only the fine moments which are incomparable. One more thing which we should not forget is that we should develop from the negatives and take them as lessons and if things do not work out, we should take another shot which means , if it’s going bad for us, then we should start with a new beginning.
  8. 8. 4.LIFE IS A PLAY The world famous English dramatist William Shakespeare quoted , “Life is a drama ,God is the director , men are actors and world is a stage . ” As life is a drama so we can also say that it is God who assigns us different roles at different time along with the time of our entrance and exit .We began with our first role i.e. infancy and end with our second infancy ,the extreme old age. Sometimes there is comedy and sometimes it’s turn for tragedy. After living all the stages of life , when the director (God) desires to remove any player , the person depart from the world . As an actor we should give our best performance in life , deliver the dialogues properly and act with the co-actors properly. No compromise should be done with this act (life).
  9. 9. We should perform in a pragmatic manner and always be ready to face any challenge because anything can happen at any time in life . The entrance to the stage of life can be compared to the removal of the curtains from the stage and when the curtains are brought down then the performers remain behind it and the audience no longer get to know what is happening behind the curtain or what the player is doing . Same is in case of reality . When any person dies we do not get to know where he is or what he is doing .
  10. 10. 5.LIFE IS A JOURNEY Life is a journey filled with lessons, hardships, heartaches, joys, celebrations and special moments that will ultimately lead us to our destination, our purpose in life. The road will not always be smooth; in fact, throughout our travels, we will encounter many challenges . Some of these challenges will test our courage, strengths, weaknesses, and faith. Along the way, we may stumble upon obstacles that will come between the paths that we are destined to take. In order to follow the right path, we must overcome these obstacles.
  11. 11. Life is a journey filled with impressions left upon one; some from sights, some from words. It is these impressions that create the person we are. Some impress so deeply they become the foundation we build our morals and ethical standards on. Life is a journey with so many options . A world to discover , dreams to chase ,goals to reach and people to meet . There will be times we may not know what we want , who we want , or where we want to go . In these moments we should always remember that the best choice is still standing.
  12. 12. Life is a journey not a destination . Everyone takes every step in a very unique way . This journey may take us down by great storms and bumpy road but it does not matter , what matter the most is how many times we stand-up to continue . Each moment on journey of life we are presented with an opportunity to react differently . In this journey (life) we have the power to change things and not walk around in a constant circle.
