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


The wise man’s defects are like the eclipses of the sun; they come to every one’s knowledge.

Justice is like the north star, which is fixed, and all the rest revolve about it.

Startle like a wound in the flesh.

Virtue is like the polar star, which keeps its place, and all stars turn towards it.
