Analogy is specifically a resemblance of relations; a resemblance that may be reasoned from, so that from the likeness in certain respects we may infer that other and perhaps deeper relations exist. Affinity is a mutual attraction with or without seeming likeness; as, the affinity of iron for oxygen. Coincidence is complete agreement in some one or more respects; there may be a coincidence in time of most dissimilar events. Parity of reasoning is said of an argument equally conclusive on subjects not strictly analogous. Similitude is a rhetorical comparison of one thing to another with which it has some points in common. Resemblance and similarity are external or superficial, and may involve no deeper relation; as, the resemblance of a cloud to a distant mountain. Compare ALLEGORY.
The analogy between (or of) nature and revelation; the analogy of sound to light; a family has some analogy with (or to) a state.

How to use coincidence in a sentence?
It's not a coincidence that the last decade-plus we haven't had a World Cup because we haven't had anybody to deal with on a long-term stable basis at the union to make decisions that had to be made to do an international tournament, the fact that we're now in a situation where there's a strong union, which I believe is important and a good thing, we can pursue mutual goals and objectives to build the game.
We often hear the phrases like "Universe is telling me with signs" or "karma is calling" or "kismet making connection" or "serendipity" or "chance" or"coincidence" and so on, whenever people refer to an unexpected life-changing event or a major scientific breakthrough that happened as an unintended consequence of otherwise normal course of actions. As a Scientist, I do think that any new invention doesn't happen by chance alone, as it may appear at the outset. Deeper analysis always reveals that any notable invention is almost alwaysa result of the synergistic meeting of statistical probability with well planned strategy, i. e. it's a combination of uncertainty with certainty that occurs at right time in right place. As Louis Pasteur said it 'Dans les champs de l'observation le hasard ne favorise que les esprits préparés.' meaning 'In the field of observations, chance favors theprepared mind.' So, keep your mind alert and well prepared at all times, because you never know when Serendipity would visit you, or when Universe would tap on your shoulder to give you the signs. Only your prepared mind would enable you to welcome wonderful Serendipity and understand the subtle signs sent to you by Universe.
