Thoreau included the following sentence in Walden: "There is some of the same fitness in a man's building his own house that there is in a bird's building its own nest." Which of the following statements rephrases his literal comparison as a metaphor? A man building his house is like a bird building his nest. A man's house is his nest. Every bird is an architect and builder of a nest. Between a human house and an avian nest, there is absolutely no difference in architectural skill.
