Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Venture
 
            I have ventur’d,
Like little wanton boys that swim on bladders,
This many summers in a sea of glory,
But far beyond my depth: my high-blown pride
At length broke under me; and now has left me,
Weary and old with service, to the mercy
Of a rude stream, that must forever hide me.
            —William Shakespeare
