I'm sorry if this question is somewhat basic. I have a sentence here that goes like this:
Be like night, in covering others’ mistakes
And like the earth, in being humble;
In love and friendliness, be like the sun;
And during anger and rage, like a mountain;
Be like a river in generosity and helping others;
And in coping with others, like a sea.
But the "like night" part, sounds somewhat off to me. should I use the here as well, or this is OK as is?
