Describe the difference between a simile and a metaphor.
Both similes and metaphors are used to form a comparison. Similes always use the word like. An example of a simile would be "life is like a box of chocolates." Metaphors do not use the word like, but rather use a direction comparison. The simile example could be written as a metaphor by removing the word like. "Life is a box of chocolates."
