A comparison of two things, indicated by some connective word, usually the words like or as usually.

Example in the landlady

"The wind was like a flat blade of ice on his cheeks".

Example in a movie

In Forest Gump, Forest said a famous line in the beginning that is a simile. "My momma said, life is lie a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get".


We use similes everyday, weather it is in novels, movies, singing, or just talking.
