Compared “to” or compared “with”?

以前一直以为这两个短语用法是差不多的,但今天才无意中发现了这两个用法的不同。

“To compare to”用来指出两个看似完全不同的事物之间的相似性,比如说 “Life has been compared to a pilgrimage, to a drama, and to a battle.”

“To compare with”则与之相反,用来指出两个类似的事物之间的不同,比如说 “Congress may be compared with the British parliament; Paris has been compared with London.”
