"In creative arts the metaphor is everything. The writer, composer, or artist conveys, often obliquely by abstraction or distortion, their own perceptions and the feelings they hope to evoke - about something, real or imagined.
They seek to bring forth in an original way some truth about the human experience. They try to pass what they create directly along the channels of human experience, from their mind to your mind. Their work is judged by the power and beauty of it's metaphors"
E. O. Smith
