Can you check if these are metaphorical definitions.

1. Friendship is a electric magnet.
2. Cooperation is a huge smile.
3. Determination is proudly hitting a home run.
4. Happiness is going sailing in a new boat.

  • English -

    Yes, but "electromagnet" is more correct that "electric magnet". I would also not equate deetermination to being "proud". It takes determination and a lot of hard work to be able to hit home runs.

  • English -

    Yes. Those are great metaphorical definitions.

  • English -

    All are good, as Drwls and Ms. Sue have said. In the first one, though, be sure to use "an" instead of "a" before a word that starts with a vowel:

    Friendship is an electric magnet.

    =)
