Tomorrow, tomorrow, and tomorrow...

Macbeth says that life is a brief candle, walking shadow, poor player, and a tale told by and idiot. He is explaining the brevity and insignificance of life using these metaphors. Create a metaphor for life. Please be creative; Forrest Gump sort of has a patent on his phrase. (Yes, I know that one is a simile... I will take those too!)

Life is an onion which has many layers within it. It keeps unraveling in a linked chain of circles when you get to the core and there is nothing more to unravel there is a past of memories.

Life is like a big circle. You never know where it begins and you never know just how it's going to end.

Life and people are like candles: you have your burn outs and the ones that keep on shinin'.

The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.

Winston Churchill said this one
"We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give."

Life is like...
1)skydiving - if at first you don't succeed, you're screwed.
2)racing - the sooner you slow down, the more time you'll have to catch up
3)a speed trap on a downward sloping hill - you want to coast through, but authority won't let you
4)shoe laces - you don't want to stop for a second and tie a good knot, but if you don't, you will trip up in the future
5)a road trip - you may not know exactly where you are going but you can fun on the way
6)a bouncy ball - with each bounce it gets slower and not as amusing, until it starts rolling, then it stops
7)Mrs. Caldwell's VCR - you can't rewind or fast forward, but you can play all you want
8)Monopoly - you want to buy Boardwalk and Park Place, but by the time you gt to it, somebody else as already got one or both of them, or you don't have enough money
9)Lucky Charms - you want to eat all of the marshmallows first, but then there's nothing sugary to eat the bland O's with
10)a sandwich - the more you put into it, the more you'll get out of it
11)this list - not everybody will get to the end of it (either distracted or bored), but the ones who do will get the most out of it

I would say life is like a roller-coaster, there are ups and downs but always an adventure!

It is not length of life, but depth of life. -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyways. -- Anonymous

Expecting life to treat you well because you are a good person is like expecting an angry bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian.-- Shari R. Barr

Life is like a taxi. The meter just keeps ticking whether you are getting somewhere or just standing still.

Life is like toliet paper long and useful.

Life's a timebomb, eventually its going to go off.

Life is like my stomach after eating Davenport's pizza. It is so tasty while you are shoving rectangle after rectangle into your mouth, but when it's all over, it is just an upset tummy--a tummy that wants even more the next time it goes to Davenport's.

life is like a battery. we're drained from school and work, but we use free time to rest and recharge.

Life is like a coin, you can spend it any way you want but you can only spend it once.
I just think that you need to live life to the fullest and do whatever your heart desires because when you die you don't want to have any regrets.

andrewp1 said...

Life is like a bag of assorted doughnuts. You never know what your going to get. You could get one with sprinkles and be excited or you could get one filled with custard and get messy. hehe.

lillyb5 said...

Life is a box that you fill up as you go. Also life is a dance, you learn as you go, sometimes you lead and sometimes you follow.

GigiR1 said...

Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.

Life is like food. You take a bunch of simple ingredients that can add up to something really special and you never know who will show up for dinner.

KatieM1 said...

Life is like Jonathan Newman, its really random, but in the end, we realize how simple it all ends up to be. All through the week we dress up to show off our best outfits and styles, and then on friday we come in with a t-shirt and a ponytail from last nights shower and early bedtime. Then heres Jonathan that ends up the center of attention with his interpretation of "casual friday"! Its complete genius!!!

ElliottM3 said...

Life is like a large thanksgiving buffet, its full of variety.

Leeb3 said...

I like Drew's comment that life is like a big circle. Maybe this has some other implication about Drew's lifestyle... Just kidding. But really, life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what will come next.

KatherineK5 said...

Life is like a really long book with only blank white pages in it. You have to write your own story.

KevinO1 said...

Life is like Chuck Norris. Give a man a fish, and you will feed him for a day. Give a man anything that is better than a fish, and Chuck Norris will roundhouse kick him and take it.

JackEM1 said...

Life is like walking around blindfolded, you never know what you are going to run into or when you'll run into it. Also, no one has said a box of chocolates yet, so now its taken :)

adamk1 said...

Life is like writing a blog for english. Most of the days you forget about it and its not fun. But every once in awhile you will have the day when elliotm3 blesses us with his wonderfull comments.

HannonK6 said...

worrying is like a rocking chair...it gives you something to do but it doesn't get you anywhere.

maxg3 said...

i know a crude metaphor for life that probably would not be appropriate for this blog, but its still a good one. i'll try and think of one though.

rebeccal5 said...

Life is like recess time on the playground. In order to have fun and succeed you have to choose between all the different options of people and activities. The options are unlimited but recess is always shorter than desired.

Uh huh, life's like this
Uh huh, uh huh, that's the way it is
Cause life's like this
Uh huh, uh huh that's the way it is

Chill out whatcha yelling' for?
Laid back it's all been done before
And if you could only let it be
you will see
I like you the way you are
When we're drivin' in your car
and you're talking to me one on one but you've become

Somebody else round everyone else
You're watching your back like you can't relax
You're tryin' to be cool you look like a fool to me
Tell me

Why do you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else gets me frustrated
Life's like this you
And you fall and you crawl and you break
and you take what you get and you turn it into honesty
and promise me I'm never gonna find you fake it
no no no

You come over unannounced
dressed up like you're somethin' else
where you are ain't where it's at you see
you're making me
laugh out when you strike your pose
take off all your preppy clothes
you know you're not fooling anyone
when you've become

Somebody else round everyone else
Watching your back, like you can't relax
Trying to be cool you look like a fool to me
Tell me

Why do you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else gets me frustrated
Life's like this you
and You fall and you crawl and you break
and you take what you get and you turn it into
honesty
promise me I'm never gonna find you fake it
no no no

Chill out whatcha yelling for?
Lay back, it's all been done before
And if you could only let it be
You will see

Somebody else round everyone else
You're watching your back, like you can't relax
You're trying to be cool, you look like a fool to me

Life is a maze. There are many different paths to the end and some are harder than others.

bens1 said...

life is waking up early and getting ready for school, only to realize that it doesnt matter because youre in purgatory.

saram3 said...

life is like a party. everyone meets different people and does different things. some people dance the whole time, some people stand by the snack table and watch the dancing, and some just sit and talk with a friend. sometimes the beginning is awkward, but there's always something to do and there always must be an end.

life is space-time

the harder you work and the more you do, the faster time goes.

i really cant believe high school is almost over
