Augustus sees metaphors in everyday things. He then uses them to explain how he lives his life and is a part of his personality.

"'That's the thing about pain,' Augustus said, and then glanced back at me. 'It demands to be felt." pg.63 This quote shows that Augustus knows that pain tries as hard as it can to be noticeable. Such as when Isaac broke all of the trophies.

"My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations." pg. 311 In his email to Van Houten, Augustus uses this quote to show that he can think, but cannot arrange his thoughts together.

“I’m on a roller coaster that only goes up, my friend.” pg. 11. This shows Augustus's optimism about life and one of the many metaphors that he uses.

"'I'm telling you,' Isaac continued, 'Augustus Waters talked so much that he'd interrupt you at his own funeral. And he was pretentious: Sweet Jesus Christ, that kid never took a piss without pondering the abundant metaphorical resonances of human waste production. And he was vain: I do not believe I have ever met a more physically attractive person who was more acutely aware of his own physical attractiveness." pg. 258

Augustus loves seeing Metaphors in every common thing. Such as smoking without lighting the cigarette. "They don't kill you unless you light them." He said as Mom arrived at the curb. "And I've never lit one. It's a Metaphor, see: You put the killing thing right between your teeth, but you don't give it the power to do it's killing." Pg. 20
