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

Hannah More

Cold as the snows of Rhodope.

Dear as light.

Dear as the vital stream that feeds my heart.

Lie like a book of anecdotes.

Pleasure, like an over-fed lamp, is extinguished by the excess of its own aliment.

Posturing, for all the world just like the man on the slack rope at our fair.

Steadfast as the pole-star.

Terrible as war.
