What to sound smarter?

Here’s a grammar rule worth heeding: the difference between compare with and compare to . Compare with means ” to place side by side,noting the differences and similarities,”as in:”Warren’s boss noted his inconsistency as she compared his goals with his yearly performance.” Use compare to when you want to to note only similarities,usually between unlike objects,as Shakespeare did”Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day.”
