Usage: Things are compared with each other in order to learn
their relative value or excellence. Thus we compare
Cicero with Demosthenes, for the sake of deciding
which was the greater orator. One thing is compared to
another because of a real or fanciful likeness or
similarity which exists between them. Thus it has been
common to compare the eloquence of Demosthenes to a
thunderbolt, on account of its force, and the
eloquence of Cicero to a conflagration, on account of
its splendor. Burke compares the parks of London to
the lungs of the human body.
