Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Courthouse
 
  The courthouse looks imposing; it is like a sea whose waters are the advocates deep in sagacious thought, whose waves are messengers in constant movement hurrying to and fro, whose fish and screaming birds are vile informers, whose serpents are attorney’s clerks, whose banks are worn by constant course of legal action.
            —Sudraka
