    Social statustudent in long-term relationship

    YOUR associations, images that strike YOU with:
    - World: An image - I see a view of Earth from Space, in a more emotive sense, world issues remind me of the starvation and unhealthy living conditions in much of the world and who's doing what about it.
    - TIME: An image - a pocket watch. My association would be that I'm always feeling there is never enough.
    -WORD: An image - would be a debate taking place. My association would be a meeting or something - using the spoken word to put ideas across and find out ways to improve them.
    - SPIRIT and SOUL: No image really, but a feeling of life and vitality; putting everything you've got into something, and being really enthusiastic.
    -GOD: Again, no particular image, but a sense of well-being, faith, trust and calmness.
    - LIFE: Image is the world. I tend to think of purposes and talents etc.
    - DEATH: A sure thing, but not necessarily one to be dreaded nor looked forward to.
    - FRIENDSHIP; FRIENDS: Images - smiles and laughter. I associate trust, support and hugs with friends.
    - LOVE: Image - my boyfriend. I associate trust, support and hugs as well as a sense of belonging, butterflies in the stomach, warmth, complete openness, comprimise, a pursuit for two persons goals, the rest of the world goes out of focus when together, and a look that you can share that can say more than words ever could. (well - that's my association with in-love. Love for friends would be covered under friends...!)
    - KING/QUEEN: Image - Crown. Associate an (impartial to the Goverment's side-issues) advisor to the PM.
    - FAIR PLAY: Truth and the "right thing" - even if that means some detriment to your own success.
    - HOME: Image - parents. Associate immense support, love and trust.
    - GENTLEMAN: Associate chivalry and politeness.
    -FREEDOM and LIBERTY: Nothing. I don't really think anything involving a mass of people could ever work without rules and some sort of code of conduct to adhere to.

    Thank you for YOUR answers

    Hope that's kinda like what you were looking for.
