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

Hermann Sudermann

A life bowed under its own wealth as the vine is bowed under its fruit.

Faint as the moonlight that rests upon your sleep, or the first glow of dawn that wakes you to new endeavor.

Emotion extinguished instantly, like a lighted match in a water-butt.

Rocked like a mass of jelly that has been invisibly shaken.

Voice … like a peace-giving orison.
