Similes are figures of speech that compare or relate two things. You often will find the use of the word "as" and/or "like" with similes. Some similes have been around for years. Similes can also be broken down into simple phrases when they are used very commonly. The simile "as clear as a crystal", comes to mind. Many people use the phrase "crystal clear" commonly.
