On Allegories

1. Allegories , when well chosen ,are like so many tracks of light in a discourse’
that make everything about them clear & beautiful                                                                      Addison

2.; A man conversing in earnest, if he watch his intellectual process, will find that a material image, more or less luminous, arises in his mind with every thought which furnishes the vestment of the thought== Hence good writing and brilliant
discourse are perpetual allegories                                                                                                    Emerson

3. Allegories are fine ornaments and good illustrations, but not proof.                                   Luther
