Frank J. Wilstach, comp. A Dictionary of Similes. 1916.


A poor man without patience is like a lamp without oil.

Dimly traced
Like moss-grown letters on a mouldering stone.

Gently she moved in the calmness of beauty,
Moved as the bough to the light breeze of morning.

White as the stem of a young palm.

White as paper of Syria.
