What Are Some Metaphors for Happiness?

An example of a metaphor for happiness is “sunshine,” as in the sentence “You are my sunshine,” which emphasises that pleasure has the capacity to brighten another person’s day. Buddha is said to have compared happiness to a candle, one of which can light thousands of others.

Similes are distinct from metaphors. In contrast to similes, which compare two things, metaphors assert that one thing is another.

A Chinese proverb compares happiness to “a sunbeam,” whereas Henry Grove compares it to a “refreshing stream” and Alphonse Karr compares it to game that might be missed if aimed at from too far away.
