I can tell by your answer that you have no knowledge of writing mechanisms(or simply refuse to exercise that knowledge)such as metaphors. They
require, and allow for, a certain degree of interpretation.
If you really can't tell when to interpret a metaphor or when to take the passage literally, it's time for more english classes.
Here we go again, please try to pay attention and answer clearly and to the best of your ability.
1)Life is a journey, purposes are destinations, means are routes, difficulties are obstacles, counselors are guides, achievements are landmarks,
choices are crossroads.....Metaphoric or literal?
2)A lifetime is a day, death is sleep; a lifetime is a year, death is winter.....Metaphoric or literal?
3)Life is a struggle, dying is losing a contest against an adversary... Metaphoric or literal?
4)Life is a precious possession, death is a loss....Metaphoric or literal?
5)Time is a thief....Metaphoric or literal?
