Metaphors for NLP & Teaching

50. That's Right

Once upon a time, a wise man was acting as the judge and arbitrator in a dispute. First the advocate of the first side gave an eloquent discourse advancing his claims. The wise man who had been listening intently agreed and said, ""That's right."" Next it was the other advocates turn and he was just as erudite. Once more the wise man agreed adding, ""That's right."" His clerk listening to the wise man's pronouncements commented, ""They can't both be right."" ""The wise man agreed by saying, ""That's right!""

    Hello Dr. Cullen,

    What a great list of metaphors! Thank you for creating this great resource for people to use freely. I was wondering if there would be any way to have each metaphor page set up with a link that says "printable version", or something similar, allowing for easy printing of a particular metaphor?

    Thanks again for setting this up. It is a really useful resource not only for me, but for my students as well.

    All the best to you,

    SJ Marubay
