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

Thomas Watson

Brave as bannered chivalry.

Calm a conscience as ever blessed an anchorite.

Cheering as the hymn of “Hark from the Tombs.”

Easy as fitting a new harness to an old horse.

Fell upon his ears like fire-bell at night.

Mythical as the glass of blood quaffed by Sombreuil’s daughter.

Voiceless as the past.
