Hello again, Ryan.

The type of figurative language that is being used in the quote you included by Chief Seattle: "My words are like the stars that never set." is a simile. A simile (pronounced: "sim-i-lee") is a comparison of two things that are not alike, and uses "like" or "as."

I hope you found this helpful.

Your satisfaction is my ultimate goal and I welcome any follow-up questions you may have on this subject, at no additional charge.

At the conclusion of our correspondence, your 5-star rating will be most appreciated, as this will enable me to continue to send quality answers to additional clients and receive recognition from the website for my assistance.

Best regards,

Cher
