Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Russia
 
  Russia, like the elephant, is rather unwieldy in attacking others, but most formidable in defending herself. She proposes this dilemma to all invaders—a dilemma that Napoleon discovered too late. The horns of it are short and simple, but strong. Come unto me with few, and I will overwhelm you; come to me with many, and you shall overwhelm yourselves.
            —C. C. Colton
