Friedrich Nietzsche
You highest men whom I have ever seen! This is my suspicion about you and my secret laughter: I guess that you would call my superman—a devil!

What is the ape to man? A laughing-stock or a painful embarrassment. And just that shall man be for the superman: a laughing-stock or a painful embarrassment.
Marie WardAlonge
Okay...let me understand. You want me to clean the house, cook everyday, wash the clothes, have and raised the kids, smile and be thankful, pay the bills, don't ever get tired, and work two jobs if needed, and still be a loving wife and mother? Well, I said I wanted to be your Super Woman, not Superman!
Ramakrushna Sahu

Dear Poets; Hello It is worth to have a look and use some of these rhetorical-devices to write more poetical texts: Alliteration Alliteration refers to the recurrence of initial consonant sounds. The phrase 'rubber baby buggy bumpers' is one example you might remember from your childhood. Alliteration is often associated with tongue twisters for kids, but brand names commonly use this technique too, such as American Apparel, Best Buy, and Krispy Kreme. Allusion Allusion is a reference to an event, place, or person. For example, you might say, 'I can't get changed that quickly, I'm not Superman! ' Referring to something well known allows the writer to make a point without elaborating in great detail. Amplification Amplification repeats a word or expression for emphasis, often using additional adjectives to clarify the meaning. 'Love, real love, takes time' is an example of amplification because the author is using the phrase 'real love' to distinguish his feelings from love that is mere infatuation. Analogy An analogy explains one thing in terms of another to highlight the ways in which they are alike. 'He's as flaky as a snowstorm' would be one example of an analogy. Analogies that are very well known sometimes fall into the categories of idioms or figures of speech. Anaphora Anaphora repeats a word or phrase in successive phrases. 'If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? ' is an example from Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice. The use of anaphora creates parallelism and rhythm, which is why this technique is often associated with music and poetry. However, any form of written work can benefit from this rhetorical device. Antanagoge Antanagoge places a criticism and a compliment together to lessen the impact. 'The car is not pretty, but it runs great' would be one example, because you're referring to the vehicle's good performance as a reason to excuse its unattractive appearance. Antimetabole Antimetabole repeats words or phrases in reverse order. The famous John F. Kennedy quote, 'Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country' is a well-known example. Antiphrasis Antiphrasis uses a word with an opposite meaning for ironic or humorous effect. 'We named our chihuahua Goliath' is an example because a chihuahua is a very small dog and Goliath is a giant warrior from the famous Bible story. Antithesis Antithesis makes a connection between two things. Neil Armstrong said, 'That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.' This pairs the idea of one man's individual action with the greater implication for humanity as a whole. Appositive An appositive places a noun or noun phrase next to another noun for descriptive purposes. An example would be, 'Mary, queen of this land, hosted the ball.' In this phrase, 'queen of this land' is the appositive noun that describes Mary's role. Enumeratio Enumeratio makes a point with details. For example, saying 'The hotel renovation, including a new spa, tennis court, pool, and lounge, is finally complete' uses specific details to describe how large the renovation was. Epanalepsis Epanalepsis repeats something from the beginning of a clause or sentence at the end. Consider the Walmart slogan, 'Always Low Prices. Always.' The repeated words act as bookends, driving the point home. Epithet An epithet is a descriptive word or phrase expressing a quality of the person or thing, such as calling King Richard I 'Richard the Lionheart.' Contemporary usage often denotes an abusive or derogatory term describing race, gender, sexual orientation, or other characteristics of a minority group. Epizeuxis Epizeuxis repeats one word for emphasis. A child who says, 'The amusement park was fun, fun, fun' is using epizeuxis to convey what a wonderful time he had at the park. Hyperbole Hyperbole refers to an exaggeration. Saying 'I have done this a thousand times' to indicate that you're very familiar with a task is an example of hyperbole because it is unlikely you've really performed the task a thousand times. Litotes Litotes make an understatement by using a negative to emphasize a positive. In this rhetorical device, a double negative is often used for effect. So saying someone is 'not a bad singer' actually means you enjoyed hearing them sing. Metanoia Metanoia corrects or qualifies a statement. 'You are the most beautiful woman in this town, nay the entire world' is an example of metanoia because the speaker is further clarifying the extent of the woman's beauty. Metaphor A metaphor is a type of implied comparison that compares two things by stating one is the other. 'Your eyes are the windows of your soul' m
