Questions. An Exhortation. Of Symbols and Metaphors.

1. When we call a dog “man’s best friend,” what are we saying about human friendship?

2. Take time to unfold metaphors and symbols. See the connections within them. Try to discern what is meant in the language. Also, be aware of what the language presents in addition to what was meant. If you carefully pull open the connections, you will discover that you may have been ignorant of thoughts most lovely—and unknowingly assenting to thoughts most horrible.

3. Were you able to detect the subtle metaphor in #2?
